MTV is falling in line with the binge-watching trend thanks to its new webseries, The Untitled Web Series That Morgan Evans Is Doing For MTV. All nine episodes, starring comedian Morgan Evans, were released in one go.
The series follows a young comedian who moves to Los Angeles from New York City, and jokingly illustrates the idea of “making it” in the entertainment world.
The original 15-episode Untitled Webseries was funded on Kickstarter, and lives on YouTube. This will be the second season. Evans, whose impressive resume includes Best Week Ever, Broad City, and the Onion, also gives pop culture-themed rants on MTV’s channel, hosting OKAY SERIOUSLY. He also plays host for Teen Wolf‘s After “After” Show.
MTV, and specifically its MTV(other) incubator brand, has been keeping the spotlight on digital series in the past year. Most recently it launched Decoded, a look at race-based news and pop culture starring Franchesca Ramsey. Braless, a feminist and sex-positive weekly show with Laci Green, launched last year.
