MTV’S “MADE” DREAMS BIGGER IN NEW EPISODES AIRING WEEKDAYS BEGINNING JUNE 18 AT 4PM ET/PT
New York, NY (June 11, 2012) – MTV’s Emmy Award winning series “MADE” is moving beyond High School and aging up. The 12th season “MADE #DreamBigger” will focus on college students, college graduates, and young adults trying to make it in the real world. The series will continue to give viewers first-hand accounts of personal transformations, but is now raising the stakes and the Made protagonists are experiencing life issues not often found in previous episodes. Characters will move across country, deal with infant children and confront domestic violence, get married, start their own businesses, and launch their careers and move out of their parents’ homes. The new episodes of “MADE #DreamBigger” kick off on June 18 at 4pm ET/PT.
For ten years the series helped high schoolers become prom queens, talent show winners, and cheerleaders. “MADE #DreamBigger” will help young adults take on professional goals. The upcoming season will include a Fashion Stylist, a TV Host, a Celebrity Assistant, a Drag Queen, a Make-up Mogul, a Circus Aerialist and many more.
Most recently nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Special Class Series category, MTV’s “MADE” has paired over 300 high school students with coaches that help the students chase their dreams and discover who they are. Now, “MADE #DreamBigger” will grant college students and young men and women the same expert guidance and insider knowledge as they face real world challenges and life-changing decisions during this transitional period of their lives.
“MADE” was created and is executive produced by Bob Kusbit and Francis Lyons for One Louder Productions. Dave Sirulnick and Tony DiBari are executive producers for MTV. “MADE” is executive produced by Donna Edge-Rachell, Kate Bernstein, and Dave Grant.
