Four original series to be available on digital media player
MTV has signed a deal to funnel four of its original series to iTunes: “Real World: Denver,” “My Super Sweet 16” and rookie shows “Rob & Big” and “Twentyfourseven.”
Retail price for each episode is $1.99, though MTV will make the premiere episode of “Rob & Big” available for free beginning Tuesday, as a promotion leading up to its Thursday debut on MTV. MTV bills “Rob & Big” as “a reality comedy series starring the professional-street-skateboarder Rob Dyrdek and his bodyguard and best friend Christopher ‘Big Black’ Boykin.”
The three other series begin on MTV and iTunes the same day. “Twentyfourseven,” dealing with seven friends who are each trying to get work in Hollywood, kicks off Dec. 6.
The returning “Real World” sets up camp in Denver with seven new residents on Nov. 22, and “My Super Sweet 16,” which features “birthday parties and coming-of-age celebrations” for middle teens, starts its new season Nov. 8.
All of these shows will flow into the separate MTV-branded cyber-location within iTunes. MTV shows from previous deals with iTunes include “Two-a-Days,” “Laguna Beach” and “Yo Mama.”
