Variety reports that MTV is overhauling their programming for the fall schedule & 2008.
“The Hills,” is back and will receive an 18-episode order, roughly double the number of episodes in its most recent season. It was also revealed that the third season would debut on Aug. 13.
“MTV has decided to order a fourth season of its hit “Laguna Beach”; it had previously considered not bringing it back.
Net is moving forward on a new season with an all-new cast. Series will be very much in the vein of the show’s first season — following a group of classmates in their final year (or, in some cases, two years) of high school.
While show won’t be shot at Laguna High, it is currently in production at another unnamed Orange County school — likely in Newport Beach — and could be on the air later this year.
Execs are still undecided whether to tweak the name to reflect the new locale or extend the franchise by keeping the “Laguna” title.”
Also confirmed Wednesday a series greenlight for docu series “The Life of Ryan,” about teen skateboarder Ryan Scheckler, the San Clemente native who is one of the sport’s rising stars.
Series will follow Scheckler in both his career and his family, particularly his relationship with his siblings, and will be on the air later this year.
