Two scripted shows were greenlit, according to The Hollywood Reporter -- Underemployed, a comedic take on post-college life in today's tough economy that will star Jared Kusnitz, Justin Levy, Clay Spencer and Julie Schwachenwald, and the sitcom Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous, featuring comedian Bo Burnham.

Four unscripted shows will be moving forward as well. Hoods will follow stars back to their far-from-Hollywood hometowns, starting with Ke$ha returning to Nashville in the first episode. In addition, the indie film Catfish will be adapted for TV, Wake Brothers will follow pro wakeboarder Philip Soven and his brother Rob, and Wait Till Next Year keeps up with a football team that's trying to turn around its five-year losing streak.

MTV had a very successful summer with strong showings for its returning reality shows Jersey Shore and Teen Mom as well as its new original scripted shows Teen Wolf and Awkward.
