“Death Valley”

Viewers will be taken to a place they’ve never been before, with MTV’s new horror-comedy “Death Valley.”  The scripted series follows the ‘Undead Task Force’ (UTF), a newly formed division of the LAPD, documentary-style, as they capture the monsters that roam the streets of California’s San Fernando Valley.  In a world where vampires, werewolves and zombies live freely, “Death Valley” is a fun, comedic non-stop thrill ride featuring chases, hardcore kills and bizarre encounters.

“Cuff’d”
Each episode of “Cuff’d” will feature approximately six different young perpetrators from distinct regions of the country engaging with their arresting officers as they ride in police cruisers on the way to central booking.  These interactions are both revealing and intense, as youth offenders open up about their lives and process the mistakes that have brought them to this critical point – while police officers offer advice and guidance.  Although most of the suspects featured are first-time offenders – the uncertainty of their predicaments often creates deeply emotional, dramatic, and humorous responses that serve as windows into the lives of young people who have veered off-course.
