MTV announced fourteen new series and specials on Thursday, including a revamped version of MTV Unplugged.
The long-running series, launched in 1989, featured artists performing live acoustic versions of their hit songs — including memorable sets by Nirvana, A Tribe Called Quest and even Mariah Carey. Now, MTV will bring Unplugged into 2016 by incorporating multi-platform video.
In addition, Zac Efron will host and executive produce an untitled documentary series about the role food plays in Millennial culture. "The project will look beyond the extravagant and obscure in food to explore the artistry, storytelling and journeys in what we eat, and the issues and experiences surrounding what we find on our plates," the network's release said.
Jumping on the current true crime bandwagon, MTV will also debut a serialized docu-series, MTV's The Investigation, about allegedly, wrongfully convicted prisoners fighting for their freedom. The series will be hosted by Ryan Ferguson, who was wrongfully convicted of murder when he was 19.
On the scripted side, MTV greenlit Sweet/Vicious, a dark one-hour dramedy about a sorority girl and a "stoner-hacker-hellion" who became vigilantes to avenge sexual assault victims on their college campus.
