MTV Fires Up ‘Siesta Key,’ ‘Catfish: Trolls’ for Summer Slate

MTV Fires Up ‘Siesta Key,’ ‘Catfish: Trolls’ for Summer Slate
MTV has set its summer slate of original series anchored by “Siesta Key,” an unscripted soap that the cabler hopes will be a worthy successor to “Jersey Shore” and “The Hills.”

“Siesta Key” follows a group of six longtime friends in the Florida Keys area as they graduate from high school and through their reunion back home in the summer following freshman year in college.
