Have you heard about Faking It?
It’s a new MTV dramedy with a super controversial premise: two high school girls pretend to be lesbians so that other students will like them!
Wait, what?! So that’s the key to being cool these days?
Look, we love that MTV imagined a high school student body so accepting that feigning to be a member of the LGBT community is the quickest way to become the most popular kid in class!
We sincerely wish school children were all so open-minded in real life!
Showrunner Carter Covington admitted he was originally appalled by the show’s premise, but then he had an epiphany! One day, while volunteering at a call center for a crisis hotline, a distressed caller admitted that he/she was worried that her/his friends only liked him/her because she/he was gay!
So, it sounds like the show is actually tapping into a genuine part of the human condition?
Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) and sound off (below)!
