Stine, will premiere on Monday, January 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.  The hour-long, 10-episode drama centers on tech genius Lindy, played by Victoria Justice, a 21-year-old hacker with a gift for seeing clues and connections in the digital world that others can't.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Persuaded by her roommate to try online dating, Lindy begins to suspect that one of her suitors is a deadly cyber stalker. When the local cyber-crimes unit uncovers a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to this mysterious stalker. Teaming up with the cyber unit and some hacker friends, Lindy leads the charge to solve these murders while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Lindy's been powerfully shaped by two life events. The first was the horrific abduction of her younger sister, Sara. In the aftermath of that trauma, Lindy dropped out of college, moved to New York, and became a hacker so she could dedicate herself to finding Sara, while occasionally bending the law to help others with their own unsolved missing persons cases. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Ben is a detective in the cyber-crimes unit who fell in love with her while he secretly had her under surveillance for her clandestine investigations.  After Ben arrested her, she never forgave him, even though he claimed that he saved her from a worse fate. Now, as Lindy finds herself the latest target of a serial killer, she's forced to use her hacking talents and work with her ex.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Eye Candy" also stars Casey Deidrick as "Tommy," Kiersey Clemons as "Sophia," John Garet Stoker as "Connor" and Harvey Guillen as "George."</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Sophia is Lindy's hip, gorgeous and vibrant best friend and roommate who owns the popular downtown nightclub IRL.   Two years ago, Sophia rescued Lindy from perpetual couch surfing when she first moved to New York by inviting her to crash in her apartment—and Lindy never left.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Connor is Sophia's other best friend – a young blogger for a gossip site.  He has a friendly rivalry with Lindy, and supports Sophia's attempts to get Lindy to join a dating app, helping Lindy navigate potential matches. Always having to share Sophia's attentions with Lindy, Connor has his own selfish reasons for wanting Lindy to have a boyfriend. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Tommy, the dry-witted New York native descends from a long line of cops and now works in the NYPD Cyber Unit. He's smart, tough, no-nonsense, and started as a beat cop before working his way up to Cyber detective. Tommy is skeptical of Lindy's tactics and motivations, but he decides to work with her when his partner, Ben, starts helping Lindy track the stalker.  </p><p>George is Lindy's friend, confidante, and coworker at her day job in the IT department of a financial company. A fellow hacker, George has always helped Lindy out when she needed assistance whether its legal or slightly left of the law.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;">For more ways to connect with "Eye Candy" like it on Facebook at <strong>Facebook.com/MTVEyeCandy</strong> or follow the show on Twitter <strong>@MTVEyeCandy.  </strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Visit <a href="http://mtvpress.com/"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">MTVPress.com</span></a> for photos and more information.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">"Eye Candy" is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by R.L.

Preceded by <em>Jackass Number Two</em> at 8PM, this one-hour MTV special includes never-before-seen footage of Bam, Ryan Dunn and the rest of the CKY crew. Check out a clip from the CKY special here: <a href="http://www.mtv.com/videos/misc/1094793/cky-the-greatest-hits-sneak-peek.jhtml#id=1732118">http://www.mtv.com/videos/misc/1094793/cky-the-greatest-hits-sneak-peek.jhtml#id=1732118</a> </p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">In the mid-90s, a group of misfits from Pennsylvania called <strong>CKY</strong> (aka "Camp Kill Yourself") crashed Hollywood and helped change the course of showbiz and pop culture. The special is told by Bam Margera and key members of the original <strong>CKY</strong> crew – including Bam's parents April and Phil Margera; his brother Jesse Margera; Chris Raab (aka Raab Himself), Rake Yohn and more. They revisit CKY's humble yet rebellious PA roots and looks back at their most audacious and hilarious antics. They started filming home movies and skate videos filled with devilishly creative yet simple stunts, skits and pranks and rode them all the way to red carpet stardom. From the Margeras' first homemade skits and the hugely popular CKY videos that arguably became the world's first viral videos, their success led them to become co-stars of the blockbuster <em>Jackass</em> franchise and eventually, their very own MTV series, <em>Viva La Bam</em>. Also appearing in the special are Jackass star Johnny Knoxville, Jackass director Jeff Tremaine, and pro skateboarders Kerry ("Hockey Temper") Getz and Tim O'Connor, who appeared on some of the original CKY tapes.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p><strong>CKY: The Greatest Hits </strong>appears on MTV presented by The Exchange, through its' newly formed TV division, in association with Knight Owl Entertainment, and was produced by Foglight Entertainment.  The Executives in Charge from MTV are Lauren Dolgen, Michelle Klepper and Kristina Edwards. </p><p> </p><p><strong>About MTV:</strong></p><p>MTV is the world's premier youth entertainment brand.   With a global reach of more than a half-billion households, MTV is the cultural home of the millennial generation, music fans and artists, and a pioneer in creating innovative programming for young people.  MTV reflects and creates pop culture with its Emmy®, Grammy® and Peabody® award-winning content built around compelling storytelling, music discovery and activism across TV, online and mobile.  MTV's sibling networks MTV2 and mtvU each deliver unparalleled customized content for young males, music fans and college students, and its online hub MTV.com is a leading destination for music, news and pop culture.  MTV is a unit of Viacom Inc.
