Ken Jeong is officially on board to star in MTV’s comedy series KEN JEONG MADE ME DO IT (previously untitled). The series was previously casting-contingent, but now that Jeong’s on board, MTV has given the pilot the greenlight. Andy St. Clair and Paul O’Toole will pen the script that centers on Andy who, after catching his girlfriend cheating, accidentally rear-ends Jeong’s car. Jeong feels bad for Andy and offers to teach him how to man up. Marc Provissiero will executive produce, while Jeong and manager Brett Carducci will produce.
Jeong recently got the good news that cancelled NBC comedy “Community” will be revived via Yahoo Screen for at least one more season, but the shooting schedules for the two series shouldn’t conflict. Jeong has recently lent his voice to “Despicable Me 2” and “Turbo.” Next up, Jeong is set to star in the CBS Films comedy “The DUFF,” as well as Tim Story’s “Ride Along 2.”
