Critics Reveal the TV Character They First Identified With — IndieWire Survey

15 August 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: When was the first time you saw a TV character that you felt represented you or your experience? Who was it? How did you feel? (This is jumping on the #FirstTimeISawMe hashtag about representation.)

Eric Deggans (@deggans), NPR

This is a tough question, because I don’t think I’ve seen a character like me yet on television (black comics nerd who loves playing drums, has a thirst for pop culture, spent his teens grooving to Frank Zappa and Parliament/Funkadelic and has a passion for racial issues and opposing stereotypes in media. Nope, haven’t seen that character yet). But the first time I saw »

MTV Road Rules and The Challenge Star Danny Dias Died of Chronic Substance Abuse

7 August 2017 8:02 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Officials have determined that MTV star Danny Dias died from “complications of chronic substance abuse,” but lacerations found on his wrists had nothing to do with his death, People confirms.

Dias, 34, did not have lethal injuries but died of natural causes brought on by years of drug abuse, a spokesperson with the New York City Chief Medical Examiner tells People.

Dias was found dead on June 4 after police received a call about a man who needed assistance at 896 Flushing Ave., Brooklyn.

When authorities arrived, Dias was unconscious and unresponsive; paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Donald Trump Is Casting White House Drama Like MTV’s ‘Real World’ (Guest Blog)

28 July 2017 7:18 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Watching the turmoil in the Trump White House over the last week got me to thinking about MTV’s “The Real World.” A long time ago, at the beginning of this crazy century, I wrote a story for Rolling Stone when the show was going into its ninth season and the producers, Mary-Ellis Bunim and Jonathan Murray, allowed a reporter in on the “secret” casting process for the first time. As it turned out, the key to casting was to push the line far enough to find crazy and outrageous kids without hiring one who might actually kill anyone (him or. »

After 29 seasons, two dozen countries visited, and almost 20 years on air, MTV’s reality competition series “The Challenge” is about to debut its biggest season ever. Hot off the heels of a charity edition, “The Challenge XXX: Dirty 30” not only features more players than ever before, but also boasts a $1 million prize for the first time in the show’s history.

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

11 July 2017 11:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

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.

This time around, the storytelling in “Key” aims to dive deeper into the emotional lives of the key players rather than the frothier approach of past MTV serials. “Key” and other shows on MTV’s summer slate are laser-focused on reflecting the way teens and twentysomethings live today. That means the cameras capture how much of those lives play out on social media.

“Throughout the series you’ll see that each character has their own complicated stories,” says Chris McCarthy, president of MTV, VH1 and Logo. “We »
