MTV announced yesterday the pick-up of four new series which will join its slate of programming, including the special “Dev,” which will follow the on-the-rise musician as she navigates the music industry, and life as a young mother.
“Dev” – At just 22, Dev almost had it all. With her magnetic “what you see is what you get” personality and Smash single “Like a G6,” this small town girl was on the brink of pop music stardom. And then she got pregnant. Now, thanks to the pregnancy, the hesitant label has pushed her debut album back three times. To make matters even more difficult, Dev and her loving fiancé Jimmy’s first child will be born in a high risk pregnancy. With her debut album set to officially drop on March 27 (Indie-pop/ Universal Republic), Dev will attempt to deliver her baby and get back in shape for an ambitious make-or-break promotional summer tour. Backed by the love and support of her family, and producer friends “The Cataracs,” will Dev handle the mounting pressure and move closer to fulfilling her dreams of being a megastar singer, or will a complicated pregnancy take center stage and derail her lifelong goals?
“Dev” is Executive Produced by Jason Carbone from Good Clean Fun. Lauren Dolgen, Jessica Zalkind, Jeff Hevert and Jennifer Russakoff are the Executives in Charge for MTV. While premiere dates will be announced at a later time, “Dev” is expected to air in primetime.
