MTV has picked up a new comedy Unemployed, a show about kids who can’t find work in their chosen field, that addresses the economic difficulties of our time while reaffirming youth and friendship. The network has given creator Craig Wright (Lost, Six Feet Under) the go-ahead on an comedy series about five post-grad friends living in Chicago. This is a great opportunity for any college graduates that are looking to break into the industry by playing a stand in or a supporting role on a new MTV show. Unemployed will be taking place in Chicago with Jared Kusnitz, Michelle Ang, Sarah Habel, Inbar Lavi and Diego Boneta being cast as the leads in the project.
Unemployed revolves around five best friends and their excitement on the eve of their college graduation but a year later find themselves going through a series of odd jobs, low-paying gigs, and comical situations. All in an effort to make ends meet. It portrays the mantra for the 18-24s who are coming out of high school and college and have to figure out how to make their dreams come true and their career aspiration fit into today’s tough economic times. Looks like MTV is finally getting to some deeper issues and attempting to step away from most of the comedy shows that they are airing.
Unemployed is about post-college reality versus the expectations… exploring all the firsts from love, family, friends and career in today’s world after the economic collapse.
