MTV today unveiled plans for a new scripted drama series. The cable channel revealed a number of details about “Eye Candy,” a cyber-thriller starring Victoria Justice, based on the bestselling novel of the same name by R.L. Stine.
The series will premiere Monday, Jan. 12, for a 10-episode run. The hour show tracks the efforts of 21-year-old tech genius Lindy (Justice) as she uses her skills to fight cyber criminals.
“Persuaded by her roommate to try online dating, Lindy begins to suspect that one of her suitors is a deadly cyber stalker,” the network says in its announcement about the series. “When the local cyber-crimes unit uncovers a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to this mysterious stalker. Teaming up with the cyber unit and some hacker friends, Lindy leads the charge to solve these murders while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City.”
