Jesse Ignjatovic Signs On To Executive Produce for First Time

NEW YORK, NY (March 5, 2012) - Fans will fall in love with their favorite movies from the past year all over again and get a first-look at films to come when MTV returns to the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA for the "2012 MTV Movie Awards." The 21st annual award show will air LIVE on Sunday, June 3rd at 9PM (ET/PT). MTV also announced that this year's telecast will be executive produced by Jesse Ignjatovic of Den of Thieves for the first time.

Known as one of the most outrageous and distinctive televised award shows, the "2012 MTV Movie Awards" will feature its trademark individuality and irreverence. Fusing the network's musical core with the wonder, scale and energy of the movie-going experience, the telecast is set to provide more laughs, surprises and one-of-a-kind moments with Hollywood's biggest stars gathering to honor fan-favorites from the past year and beyond.

"Just as Jesse has done with our 'Video Music Awards', we know he'll infuse this year's 'Movie Awards' with creative, musical and cinematic elements that fully tap into the sense of awe our audience experiences in a movie theater," said Stephen Friedman, President of MTV. "In his inspired hands, this year's show will be re-imagined to deliver a telecast that reflects our audiences' favorite films, music and stars."

The "2012 MTV Movie Awards" will be available to a potential viewing audience of more than 1.2 billion people via MTV's global network of more than 60 channels reaching nearly 600 million households around the world as well as through syndication. In addition, its convergent programming & content will reach the entire interactive community, via MTV's more than 200 digital media properties around the world.

Jesse Ignjatovic of Den of Thieves has served as executive producer for the "MTV Video Music Awards" for the past five years, including the "2011 Video Music Awards" that scored MTV's biggest audience in the network's history.

The "2011 MTV Movie Awards" delivered a 3.9 rating among P12-34, averaging 4.5 million viewers, and its largest audience among teens since 2004 - a 5.4 rating overall, and whopping 8.3 rating among female teens.

The show kept its tradition as Hollywood's most atypical and irreverent awards show, with host Jason Sudeikis providing laugh-out-loud moments, a surprise appearance by Justin Bieber, a naughty-but-nice presentation by Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, GENERATION AWARD winner Reese Witherspoon providing a message of female empowerment, and the stars of the night's big winner "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" - Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner - lip-locking as Pattinson went to accept his BEST KISS golden popcorn.
