Eye Candy: MTV Orders New Thriller TV Series

Eye Candy TV show on MTVMTV has given the go-ahead for a new thriller series called Eye Candy. The cable channel has ordered 10 episodes for season one.

Eye Candy follows a female tech genius named Lindy (Victoria Justice) who, at the suggestion of her roommate, starts dating online. When her hacker friends uncover a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to one of her dates. Lindy works with them to solve the murders — while unleashing her own brand of justice.

The pilot co-stars Harvey Guillen, Nico Tortorella, Olesya Rulin, Justin Martin, and Lilan Bowden. However, the pilot will be reshot and recast with only Justice and Guillen remaining in their roles.

Based on the book by R.L. Stine, the Eye Candy pilot was written by Emmy Grinwis and directed by Catherine Hardwicke. There’s no word on when the new series will premiere.

    I believe that eye candy should be renewed for the sake of all eye candy fans it doesn’t matter if the ratings were a bit off it was an amazing show a thriller and somewhat romance the plot was amazing anyone could understand why the killer is doing this to get her attention of course but then we realize there are two criminals behind this they got jake but what about the other guy we need to know but you canceled the show how will we find out who that person is all this is making me crazy I have a huge headache after all this please bring back eye candy please don’t do this to all eye candy fans

      I agree. MTV can’t leave fans with that kind of cliffhanger. With all the questions that need answered. There’s Lindy’s future with Tommy.Why Sara saved her by faking her kidnapping? And so many others like what will Sophie and Connor do next?

    yes it does sound interesting even though I’m in the old category as a 50 year old. Advertise, advertise, advertise when it will pilot. Daniel Lissing posted something on his facebook page about it otherwise I might not have known about the upcoming show. thx.
