The New York-based channel MTV is getting into the home decor industry, with the launch of a new reality series titled MTV Girls.
The show is set to debut this spring and will feature four MTV personalities, including a young woman named Samantha from Brooklyn, who will be the show’s host.
“We’re thrilled to have Samantha on the show,” MTV president and CEO Jon Miller told BuzzFeed News.
“She has a gift for making people laugh and make fun of themselves, and she’s got an incredible story and she can speak from the heart.”
“She’s a really funny girl, and we’re excited to have her join our team,” he added.
The series is set in the MTV offices and will be hosted by the late host and current MTV News producer, Katie Couric.
“Katie is the perfect host for this show,” Miller said.
“And she’s a true TV journalist.
She’s not afraid to tell us what she’s thinking.”
The series will be filmed in the same building as the MTV studio in Los Angeles, but with the hosts’ faces obscured.
“It will be more about Samantha and Katie, but the show will have Samantha and Katie as guests,” Miller explained.
“This will be a fun project to do.”
Miller also confirmed that Samantha will not be the only guest host on the new show.
“I know Samantha is very funny, but I think we’ve got a really talented team,” Miller added.
“The new series will include four female hosts.
Samantha and Amanda are a great combination of comedy and news.
They’ll have a bit of a news show and a bit more of a comedy show.
Samantha is a great storyteller, and Amanda will give the most authentic voice to the show.”
Miller noted that the new series is still in the early stages of development.
“All we know is that we’re shooting in the beginning of the spring,” he said.
Miller said that MTV has been looking to launch a new show since the beginning, with a goal to launch by April.
“If it gets picked up, it’ll be great,” he explained.
Miller confirmed that the network is working on two more new shows.
“They’re doing a little bit of something for MTV, and one of them is a comedy,” he noted.
“But that’s the other one that we’ve been working on for a while.”
MTV Girls will be released this spring.
“MTV has always been about making the best shows possible, and the best TV is what we do best,” Miller confirmed.
“So we’re very excited to see what they come up with next.
We’ll definitely be watching.”
BuzzFeed News contacted MTV for further comment on Samantha’s character, but did not receive a response by the time of publication.
