MTV planning scripted comedies

MTV is developing an “unprecedented number” of scripted programs right now, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Currently in the works: DJ and the Fro, an animated series about office pals who swap viral videos; Private High Musical, based on the salty web series; Long Distance Relationship, about a college couple who stays connected via webcam; Popzilla, a sketch series; Who’s Your Daddy, an animated series about a celebrity couple and their adopted children; and Hard Times, about a “well-endowed high school geek whose social status is greatly improved after accidentally exposing himself at a basketball game.”
