MTV Orders Catherine Hardwicke Drama ‘Eye Candy’ to Series

Cyber-centric series to star Nickelodeon alum Victoria Justice

MTV has handed a 10-episode order to “Eye Candy,” a drama exec produced by Catherine Hardwicke and Jason Blum.

Series stars Victoria Justice and centers on a beautiful but reclusive hacker whose blog exposes everything from terrorist plots to suspected killers. Convinced by her roommate to begin online dating, Lindy (Justice) 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.

MTV has yet to set a premiere date for the series. While Hardwicke helmed the initial pilot for “Eye Candy,” Variety has confirmed that MTV will not air that pilot, and is re-casting the series. (Justice along with Harvey Guillen will remain on the cast.)

Emmy Grinwis penned the pilot for “Eye Candy,” which is based on a novel by R.L. Stine. Hardwicke (“Twilight”) helmed the pilot in addition to serving as exec producer. Other executive producers on the project include Yvonne Bernard and Beth Elise Hawk.
