MTV is developing a weekly series, Private High Musical, which will parody
Disney’s High School Musical. Private High Musical, is based on an online series and may debut on MTV in Fall as a half hour show, according to HR.
MTV’s head of programming Tony DiSanto revealed that they developing a number of scripted half-hour projects.: ‘We’re going to apply the same tenets of creativity and genre-busting to scripted comedy that ‘Laguna Beach’ used to makeover the documentary.
..It makes sense as a progression for us when a lot of our shows like ‘Run’s House’ and ‘The Hills’ look scripted to start going forward with actual scripted shows.’
PHM Tayrn Souther added: ‘I’ve always been an avid musical fan, and when Disney’s ‘High School Musical’ became this big phenomenon, I thought it was funny that nobody ever did a musical that told how high school really was.’
