From YouTube to MTV: Comedy Writer Morgan Evans Lands Deal for Web Series
Written by: Catherine Satcher
MTV’s short form content studio MTV (other) has ordered a second cycle of The Untitled Web Series Morgan Evans is Doing, which is based on fictionalized accounts of comedy writer Morgan Evans’ life. The new eight episode series will begin this fall, debuting across several MTV digital platforms such as MTV.com, their mobile app, and Youtube. The first run of Evans’ web series began in 2011 with the help of a Kickstarter campaign. The new season will feature several stars from within the Viacom family including Melissa Ponzio from Teen Wolf and Broad City’s Abbi Jackson. Colin Helms, MTV’s Senior Vice President of connected content, said the series is an example of his desire for MTV (other) to serve as an incubator for content creators, directors and actors.
