*Nicole Byer is about to take over MTV.
The star of “Girl Code” stars in a new comedy pilot as well as a new hidden-camera prank show for the cable network.
In the “Untitled Nicole Byer Project,” Byer plays a young adult forced to move in with her sister and four kids in the suburbs after causing a fire in her New York City apartment. Aunt Nicole will offer her own brand of advice to her sister’s kids while trying to get her life back on track. Byer will be a consulting producer.
The prank series, “Ladylike,” will co-star “Girl Code” alums Jade Catta-Preta and Matteo Lane and comedian Blair Socci as they take to the streets and redefine what it means to be “Ladylike” – challenging social norms and unleashing uncompromising and ridiculous situations on the unsuspecting public.
“Girl Code is all about smart and funny women who aren’t afraid to talk about anything, and Ladylike takes that sensibility to the streets to raise hell and challenge a few gender norms along the way,” said Lauren Dolgen, MTV’s co-head of programming and head of reality.
