[via press release from MTV]

MY NAME IS RJ BERGER AND I'M COMING TO MTV ON JUNE 6

"The Hard Times of RJ Berger" Premieres on Sunday, June 6 at 11pm ET/PT Following the 2010 MTV Movie Awards

Series Moves to Regular Time Slot on Monday, June 14 at 10pm ET/PT

SANTA MONICA, CA (March 15, 2010) - Scripted comedy makes its debut this summer on MTV with the premiere of "The Hard Times of RJ Berger" on June 6th at 11pm ET/PT following the MTV Movie Awards. A half-hour, single camera, scripted, coming-of-age comedy that follows the awkward life of RJ Berger, a late-blooming loser with an anatomical gift, "The Hard Times of RJ Berger" provides a glimpse into classic teenage milestones. Following the premiere, the series will move to its regularly scheduled Monday night timeslot at 10pm ET/PT on June 14th. The first season will consist of 12 episodes. Every episode begins and ends with a "My name is RJ Berger" thought from RJ - a measure of what he's learned that week. Each episode of the series will also incorporate a stylized animation sequence, identifying the show with pop culture and video games. The series was created by David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith.

THE HARD TIMES OF RJ BERGER

The Hard Times of RJ Berger portrays the hilariously-hellish lives of a deeply unpopular 15 year-old named RJ Berger (Paul Iacono) and his scheming, sex-obsessed best friend, Miles Jenner (Jareb Dauplaise). For RJ, other than pining after the girl of his dreams, Jenny Swanson (Amber Lancaster), receiving daily beatings from the meanest jock in school, Max Owens (Jayson Blair), and evading the stalker-ish advances of Lily Miran (Kara Taitz), there really isn't much excitement in his life. That is, until his anatomical gift is accidentally exposed to the entire school. In a single moment, RJ goes from anonymous to infamous, and for the first time in his life, he feels a tiny sliver of confidence. A coming-of-age comedy about a high school sophomore, the series is part "The Wonder Years" and part "Superbad."

The Hard Times of RJ Berger is executive produced by David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith. Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Michelle Klepper and Justin Levy are the MTV executives in charge of production.
