With The Hills final episode last night, MTV clearly have a slot to fill. However, rather than go for the reality TV route, this time they’ve gone and given us a scripted comedy; The Hard Times of RJ Berger.

Coming to the UK this September is MTV’s The Hard Times of RJ Berger, a quirky comedy about teen nerd RJ Berger who begins to climb the high school social ladder after it is accidently revealed during a school basketball game that he is…um…well-endowed

Fame’s Paul Iacono stars as Berger, the awkward yet likeable title character who experiences just about every high school related embarrassment imaginable while trying to earn the affections of the beautiful cheerleader, Jenny Swanson, played by newcomer Amber Lancaster.  Unfortunately for Berger, his dream girl’s boyfriend, Max Owens, is the star football player and school bully, and may make it just a tad bit difficult for Berger to swoop in.  He must also face the stalker-like Lilly Miran, who is always hot on Berger’s tail, as well as put up with the outlandish antics of his best friend, Miles Jenner, all while trying to survive sophomore year! 

The show, which had a successful premiere in the U.S. in June, is MTV’s first scripted comedy, a different kind of show for the mainly reality based network. 

The original comedy, which sheds light on both past and present day teenage stereotypes, has something to offer for both teen and adult audiences, giving some of us a look back on many of the same stories that we remember from our own school experiences.  So don’t miss this hilarious look at typical teenage mishaps this autumn on MTV!
