MTV has given the green light to Savage U, a late-night show
featuring advice columnist and It Gets Better Project creator Dan Savage talking sex,
love, and relationships with college students.
The network ordered the show to premiere in January. It's one of four shows MTV ordered last week.
"I don’t think there are any networks talking to teenagers about how to navigate sex and modern relationships," MTV head of production Chris Linn told Entertainment Weekly. There’s been a real leap forward in information online and the way teens communicate, and Dan is somebody who brings real credibility.”
Savage's It Gets Better book, based on the antibullying campaign he launched last year, debuted on the New York Times best-seller list in March.
