Comedies from Nicole Byer, Kaplan/Elfont and Kaytin Robinson ordered to series after pilots ordered in September

MTV has added to its comedy roster by giving series orders to three new shows. The three were all picked up as pilots in September.

The “Untitled Nicole Byer Project” is named after the comedian, who will play a character forced to move in with her sister and four kids in the suburbs after causing a fire in her New York City apartment. Byer will serve as a consulting producer, while Christian Lander and Avi Gilbert are EPs. 3 Arts Entertainment will produce.

An untitled comedy, from executive producers and writing duo Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont, formerly known as “Dope Girls” has also been given the greenlight. The series follow entrepreneurial popt dealers Paige and Jordan. It will be produced by Entertainment 360.
