Sadly, this MTV movie/TV show was never made... but there was a TV pilot actually made for FOX (there was even a ten part radio series in Germany)! Oh, before I go on, maybe I should tell you that YOUTH IN REVOLT is based on the book series YOUTH IN REVOLT: THE JOURNALS OF NICK TWISP by C.D. PAYNE, an extremely funny author (you can go to Amazon.com and read 100's of great reviews for this book, or go to the author's website at nicktwisp.com). The MTV show was going to be a 13 week nightly soap opera style show in 1998, but as far as I know, nothing was ever filmed (their rights are almost up, and we might see something from someone else soon). FOX's Brillstein-Grey produced pilot for Youth in Revolt was shot in 1996. Sadly, the pilot didn't get picked up, but there was a lot of buzz in magazines and newspapers about it being pretty good. It had a lot of the same cast as Malcom in the Middle, and many other fine actors (some say it had a very similar feel of Malcom too): Christopher Kennedy Masterson (as Nick Twisp), Jimmy Shubert, Robert Desiderio, Jane Kaczmarek, and many more that I can't think of. Maybe, someday, we will see the wonderful characters from CD Payne's book come to life, but for now we will just have to wait.
