Airdate: The Hard Times Of R.J. Berger

By David Knox on September 3, 2010 / Filed Under Pay TV 4

Is it junior Hung?

MTV will premiere The Hard Times of RJ Berger from next week, a coming-of-age comedy about the hellish lives of a deeply unpopular 15-year-old named RJ Berger (Paul Iacono) and his scheming, sex-obsessed best friend, Miles Jenner (Jareb Dauplaise).

But wait.. there’s more.

For RJ, other than pining after the girl of his dreams, Jenny Swanson (Amber Lancaster), receiving daily beatings from the meanest jock in school, Max Owens (Jayson Blair), and evading the stalker-ish advances of Lily Miran (Kara Taitz), there really isn’t much excitement in his life.

That is, until his anatomical gift is accidentally exposed to the entire school.

In a single moment, RJ goes from anonymous to infamous, and for the first time in his life, he feels a tiny sliver of confidence.

The series is described as part The Wonder Years and part Superbad.

It is expected to air at a later date on GO!

Begins Thursdays at 8:30pm from September 9 on MTV.
