LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – MTV has said “I do” to a pilot for “Married Young,” an hourlong docu-series revolving around couples in their first year of marriage.
If ordered to series, “Married Young” would follow in the footsteps of the network’s successful “Teen Mom” and “16 and Pregnant” franchises, but be more serious in tone.
The project would spotlight young couples as they struggle with the newfound responsibilities that arrive when the honeymoon ends.
“16 and Pregnant” has been a success for MTV, with two spinoffs “Teen Mom” and “Teen Mom 2″ also breakout hits for the network.
