MTV has picked up two new dramas, Underemployed and Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous.

The network announced that the series have been ordered alongside four new reality shows.

Underemployed, which is being executive produced by Brothers & Sisters' Craig Wright, focuses on a group of best friends struggling to cope with the reality of life after graduation.

Rock of Ages star Diego Boneta, who has also appeared in 90210 and Pretty Little Liars, has joined the cast alongside The Secret Life of the American Teenager's Jared Kusnitz, Inbar Lavi, Michelle Ang and Whip It's Sarah Habel.

Meanwhile, Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous stars Bo Burnham as a high school graduate who hires a film crew to follow him as he attempts to become a celebrity without having any talent.

Elsewhere, MTV ordered the reality show Catfish, based on the recent movie documentary. The programme, which will star Catfish's Nev Schulman, will bring together couples who have only interacted online.

Hoods will see celebrities returning to the places where they grew up, Wait Till Next Year follows the Lincoln Park High School football team as they try to end a five-year losing streak, and Wake Brothers focuses on brothers Philip and Bob Soven as they compete in wakeboarding championships and face sibling rivalry.

MTV's executive vice-president of programming and head of production Chris Linn said: "All of these series reflect timely themes that we know resonate with our audience.

"We've listened to our viewers and feel that this group of shows hits cultural nerves that connect with them."

MTV 's remake of British show The Inbetweeners, which is currently in development, was recently praised by Anthony Head.
