MTV 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.
