/// MTV’s Newest Series Include the Amazingly Titled Slednecks

April 24, 2014  |  Media Week

MTV isn't getting off the kids-behaving-badly kick: after Jersey Shore and Buckwild, the network is going for a third locale filled with colorful young people, set in Alaska, called Slednecks. The network also has Beyond Dance, a dancing competition series, and One Bad Choice, a Teen Mom-style series about people who made a poor decision and then dealt with the consequences. The upfront was music-heavy, as befitting the M in the network's name, with performances by Bastille and Zed, among others. But it also included an unexpected part of the Viacom portfolio: LGBT-themed network Logo (which, oddly, Viacom called a “brand” in its boilerplate, rather than a network), which has a new series called The Secret Guide to Fabulous Living. It's unclear what kind of change might come from the conflation of the two networks—is Viacom consolidating?—but MTV said the show would be about “not how to have it all, but what to do with what you have,” which seems to be of a piece with MTV's working-class subject matter these days. Scripted series returning included, of course, Teen Wolf , and Rob Drydek's Ridiculousness. The network's summer slate will show exclusively on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
