MTV has put in an order for a new pilot to be directed by none other than Zach Braff.
‘Self Promotion,’ a dark comedy, is about an overworked assistant named Kate Preston who takes things a little too far when she finds out that her horrible boss has gone missing. Katie, who thinks she would be the cops' prime suspect, covers up the crime scene and decides to not only find out what happened but to take over her boss’ job in the meantime.
The script will be penned by Mark Bianculli (‘The Waiting’) with Steve Yockey (‘Awkward’) signed on as executive producer. This project will mark Braff’s return to directing television, with his previous credits including work on ‘Scrubs’ and more recently the 2008 ABC pilot ‘Night Life.’
