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.

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
