Victoria Justice is bringing a little eye candy to MTV…
The network has picked up to series the 20-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/singer and former Nickelodeon star’s thriller drama pilot Eye Candy.
MTV has given Justice’s new series a 10-episode order.
The pilot, which will undergo extensive recasting and will be reshot, stars Justice as tech genius Lindy, who begins to suspect that one of her online suitors might be a deadly cyber stalker.
When her friends at the cyber-police uncover a potential serial killer in Manhattan, she works with the hackers to solve the murders while unleashing her own style of justice.
Co-starring with Justice in the Eye Candy pilot were Harvey Guillen, Nico Tortorella, Olesya Rulin, Justin Martin and Lilan Bowden.
Of the original cast members, only Guillen will stay on alongside Justice, with all other roles recast for a new pilot episode.
Eye Candy, written by Emmy Grinwis and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, marks a departure from MTV’s usual comedy fare.
