Darin Brooks' Blue Mountain State Series Picked Up
Back in December Jamey blogged about Darin Brooks landing the pilot Blue Mountain State. Now comes word from The Hollywood Reporter that the show has received a 12-episode order.
Produced by Lionsgate TV and Robbins' Varsity Pictures, "Mountain" is in the vein of Animal House. The series follows three incoming freshmen (Darin Brooks, Chris Romano, Sam Jones III) who attend Midwestern football powerhouse Blue Mountain State and quickly must adapt to college life while juggling football, women, classes and nonstop hazing.
"Blue Mountain State contains four key ingredients to being a guy: football, partying, women and hazing," said Kevin Kay, president of the male-centric Spike TV.
Added Lionsgate TV president Kevin Beggs, "It's a show that doesn't pull any punches -- it's just all-out funny."
