Victoria Justice, pictured, has been cast in the pilot for MTV’s “Eye Candy” reports Variety.
“The Nickelodeon alum will play Lindy, a beautiful but reclusive hacker whose blog exposes everything from terrorist plots to suspected killers. Convinced by her roommate to begin online dating, Lindy is targeted by a dangerous cyberstalker and believes one of her suitors to be the culprit. When things take a deadly turn, she teams up with the city’s cyber-crime unit to catch the killer.”
Casting marks Justice’s first since wrapping “Victorious” on Nick and pursuing her music career.
“Eye Candy,” written by Emmy Grinwis, is based on a novel by the same name by R.L. Stine. Twilight helmer Catherine Hardwicke is on board to direct and exec produce the drama.
Jason Blum is exec producing with his shingle Blumhouse Prods., alongside Yvonne Bernard and Beth Elise Hawk.
