MTV has greenlit a nonscripted series following recent college graduates struggling to find work in the current economy, with a premiere date of May 6.
With a 20-episode order, “MTV Hired” will provide work for five exec producers: Jessica Chesler, Sam Simmons, Noah Scheinmann, Matt Westmore, Marshall Eisen and Dave Sirulnick. The real-life job seekers featured on the show will range from the overqualified to underqualified, in a variety of professions.
MTV also announced a third-season pickup of “Silent Library,” the Japanese gameshow adaptation exec produced by Adam Dolgins and Frank Gregory for Fractured Hip Prods. The new season will premiere June 21.
Both series will air weekday afternoons in timeslots to be determined.
