New York, NY (November 25, 2014) – MTV announced today that it will air two new specials that explore the heights and depths of being young and in love as well as what it’s like to grow up Greek in a Florida community. Set to air the first week of December, “True Life Presents: Crazy Young Love” premieres on Tuesday, December 2nd at 10 PM ET / PT and “Growing Up Greek” airs on Wednesday, December 3rd at 11 PM ET/PT, immediately after an all-new episode of “Snooki and JWOWW.”
True Life Presents: Crazy Young Love
This hour long docudrama special follows three couples as they document the highs and lows of being young and obsessively in love. Each couple is given a camera for 30 days to film their most intimate and private moments, captured in an unprecedented way. Irrational, obsessive, and sometimes destructive, viewers will be invited into their most personal moments as these young lovers try to navigate their intense relationships. They are out to prove, through their own eyes, that true love is just crazy enough to conquer all. For a clip of “True Life Presents: Crazy Young Love,” go here:

Growing Up Greek
This comedic half-hour special follows a group of rowdy friends in their early twenties growing up in a strong Greek community. Tarpon Springs, Florida is an idyllic and picturesque fishing town, where most of its residents are either related, dating, or feuding with their fellow Greek neighbors. Family means everything to this group, but sometimes their brazen parents and grandparents can get even more outrageous than the kids. Greek heritage influences everything in this unique world of characters and cultural customs. For a clip of “Growing Up Greek,” go here:
