Variety reports that MTV has handed a 10-episode order to “Eye Candy,” a drama exec produced by Twilight‘s Catherine Hardwicke and Jason Blum (Insidious, Paranormal Activity).
The series stars Victoria Justice and “centers on a beautiful but reclusive hacker whose blog exposes everything from terrorist plots to suspected killers. Convinced by her roommate to begin online dating, Lindy (Justice) 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.”
MTV has yet to set a premiere date for the series.
Emmy Grinwis penned the pilot for “Eye Candy,” which is based on a novel by R.L. Stine.
Hardwicke, who also directed the fantastic Thirteen and Lords of Dogtown, helmed the pilot.
