2013-10-18_1729On Monday MTV premieres a new scripted comedy series, Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous.

This stars comedian Bo Burnham as a fresh-out-of-high school teenager who opts to pursue a life of fame and stardom instead of attending college.

It premiered in the US in May but was cancelled after 9 episodes. Maybe not so famous after all…

The series follows Zach, who hires a camera crew to film him throughout his daily life as a part of his quest to become an over-night celebrity – even though he possesses no real talent. From Zach’s attempts to become a celebrity chef or a ring-tone recording artist to purposefully going missing, he’ll try any avenue to get noticed and stop at nothing until he reaches fame. Chaos, awkwardness and embarrassment ensue in this clever and timely series that serves as a comedic send-up of today’s current culture of instant celebrity.

9:30pm Monday October 21 on MTV.
