Back in January, we heard that The Onion advice columnist/contributor Dan Savage, who was also a major part of the MTV special for the It Gets Better Project, was getting his own MTV pilot called Savage Love.
Now, we're hearing that Savage's MTV show has officially been given the green light, and it will now be called Savage U.
Here's what MTV's head of production Chris Linn had to say about it:
"I don’t think there are any networks talking to teenagers about how to navigate sex and modern relationships. There’s been a real leap forward in information online and the way teens communicate and Dan is somebody who brings real credibility.”
As we said back in January, we're excited to see what Mr. Savage will do with his own show.
Will U tune in for Dan Savage's new late night show on MTV?
