MTV is proceeding with development on a reality series about aspiring girl group the Electric Barbarellas, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show gained notoriety last month when reports surfaced that Viacom chair Sumner Redstone had pushed for its creation over others’ objections. Redstone subsequently left a controversial voicemail for Daily Beast columnist Peter Lauria, demanding that the journalist reveal his source on the Electric Barbarellas story.
