"World of Jenks" Season 2 on MTV is from award-winning documentary filmmaker Andrew Jenks.
This season, MTV is doubling the length of each episode from 30 minutes to a full hour. But instead of focusing on one subject per episode, the program will follow three subjects over the course of the entire season. The series showcases the lives of inspirational young people who face difficult odds but strive to overcome them. It's shot from the POV of Andrew Jenks, a 25-year old filmmaker who embeds himself in the life of each individual with cameras rolling the entire time.

It was recently named Best Documentary-Style Reality Program at the Banff World Media Festival, the world's premiere festival for television and digital media.

Season 1

"World of Jenks" takes viewers on unforgettable journeys as he captures on film a wide range of voices and personal stories. In each episode, the 24-year-old Jenks focuses his lens and creates a bond with his subject to tell the story of one person's life, bringing viewers closer to understanding someone else's reality — everyone from a platinum-selling recording artist to a young homeless woman, from a pro-cheerleader to a young adult with Autism. Jenks dives wholeheartedly into twelve disparate lives and in the process pioneers a new style of storytelling for this generation of young people.

Jenks keeps the cameras rolling every hour, every day. Throughout the series, his experiences continuously change how he perceives and interacts with the environment around him. For Andrew Jenks' first film, HBO's "Room 335," he moved into an assisted-living facility and stayed for over a month. Jenks' second film, "The Zen of Bobby V" had him spending seven months in Japan filming American baseball manager Bobby Valentine as he managed the Chiba Lotte Marines. Praised by film critics around the world, the film premiered at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival.

"World of Jenks" Season 2 is executive produced by Andrew Jenks and Mike Powers. Brent Haynes and Brooke Posch are executive producers for MTV.
