MTV lands new scripted comedy "Zack Stone Is Gonna Be Famous" on May, 2

Comedian Bo Burnham makes his debut as co-creator, executive producer, writer and star with MTV’s new scripted comedy series “Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous”. Burnham will play a high-school graduate who wants to be famous instead of going to college. He has no talent, no other quality to be famous, just the will. The wise kid makes a reality show about his everyday life hiring a camera crew to follow him everywhere. He goes through every step of becoming famous: embarrassment, chaos, awkwardness.

Recently selected by Judd Apatow as an “inspired comic doing great work right now” in Vanity Fair’s January 2013 Comedy Issue, Burnham delivers big laughs in MTV’s new half-hour, 12-episode series premiering on Thursday, May 2 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Three days after the comedy hits the screen, Bo Burnham goes on a national tour called “What”, his first one after “Words, words, words”. He was the youngest person ever to record a Comedy Central Presents special having only 19 years old. He combines music, stand-up and theater.
