Victoria Justice Cast in MTV’s Cyber Thriller ‘Eye Candy’

Project is exec produced by Catherine Hardwicke, Jason Blum

Victoria Justice has been cast in the pilot for MTV’s “Eye Candy.”

The Nickelodeon alum will play Lindy, a beautiful but reclusive hacker whose blog exposes everything from terrorist plots to suspected killers. Convinced by her roommate to begin online dating, Lindy is targeted by a dangerous cyberstalker and believes one of her suitors to be the culprit. When things take a deadly turn, she teams up with the city’s cyber-crime unit to catch the killer.

Casting marks Justice’s first since wrapping “Victorious” on Nick and pursuing her music career.

Victoria Justice is exactly someone we want to be in business with,” said MTV programming topper Susanne Daniels. “Not only does she resonate with our audience, she has a huge fanbase and is extremely talented. We are very lucky to have her.”

Eye Candy,” written by Emmy Grinwis, is based on a novel by the same name by R.L. Stine. “Twilight” helmer Catherine Hardwicke is on board to direct and exec produce the drama. Jason Blum is exec producing with his shingle Blumhouse Prods., alongside Yvonne Bernard and Beth Elise Hawk.
