When the imprint you’ve made on your friend’s couch reaches the springs, when that one wet filter is good for three or four pots of coffee and when a prestigious college degree would be better served as bonfire fuel: You, good friend, are “Underemployed.” The brand new MTV series, which premieres next month, will follow five friends in Chicago a year after graduation, a year after they swore world domination and a year after they…started working in doughnut shops and sampling dog food instead. Yup! This is the real world.
Since “Pomp and Circumstance” played for the last time across the quad, Sophia has been struggling to become the next great writer, Daphne can’t seem to turn her internship into a paid job and Raviva–who moved out to L.A. to pursue a music career–is back and…pregnant…with Lou‘s baby! And if the fog of age 23 didn’t seem thick enough, Miles has turned to part-time exotic dancing to make ends meet. Hey, whatever keeps a roof above your head…
+ Check out what’s to come from the Midwest non-elite in the new series’ trailer below, and be sure to tune in for the first episode of “Underemployed” when it premieres on Tuesday, October 16 at 10/9c!
