MTV has greenlighted the single-camera comedy pilot “Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous,” a mockumentary about a high school graduate who hires filmmakers to follow him around and make him famous, Deadline.com reported.

The series was co-created by 20-year-old comedian Bo Burnham and writer Dan Lagana, and stars Burnham.

"The idea is of a kid who is filming his own life and since he has control, we can see multiple takes as he is trying to make himself more appealing by thinking that you have to act like you are famous in order to be famous," Burnham said.
