'Faking It,' 'Are You The One'

MTV has renewed “Faking It,” “Are You The One” and “Broke A$$ Game Show.” The pickups were announced Tuesday at the cabler’s upfront presentation at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

“Faking It” was handed a third season. The teen comedy, starring Katie Stevens and Rita Volk, returns with the latter half of it’s second season on August 31.

Reality dating show “Are You The One?” was also given a third season. The series, which features a different cast of housemates each round, wrapped up Season 2 this past December. “Broke A$$ Game Show,” which premiered this February, will be coming back for its sophomore season.

MTV also ordered a late-night talk show, “Middle of the Night Show,” which was developed with CollegeHumor production studio Big Breakfast.

“We’re exploding our development process across screens — getting faster, more daring, putting more projects into play and taking bigger swings than ever,” said Stephen Friedman, president of MTV.

Sneak peaks for scripted fantasy drama “The Shannara Chronicles” and MTV’s television adaptation of “Scream” were also unveiled at the upfront presentation.

Susanne Daniels, president of programming for MTV, commented: “This slate demonstrates the creative breadth of what MTV can do — epic scripted dramas, irreverent comedies, inventive format-driven series, fun topical talk shows, all with a distinct, youthful voice.”
