"Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous" is a single-camera scripted comedy series on MTV starring comedian Bo Burnham as Zach Stone, a fresh-out-of-high school teenager who opts to pursue a life of fame and stardom instead of attending college. The series follows Zach, who hires a camera crew to film him throughout his daily life as a part of his quest to become an over-night celebrity — even though he possesses no real talent. From Zach's attempts to become a celebrity chef or a ring-tone recording artist to purposefully going missing, he'll try any avenue to get noticed and stop at nothing until he reaches fame. Chaos, awkwardness and embarrassment ensue in this clever and timely series that serves as a comedic send-up of today's current culture of instant celebrity.

The cast includes Bo Burnham as Zach Stone; Kari Coleman ("The Amazing Spider-Man") as Mrs. Stone; Tom Wilson ("Back to the Future") as Mr. Stone; Cameron Palatas (Disney Channel's "A.N.T. Farm") as Andy Stone; Caitlin Gerard ("Magic Mike") as Amy; and Armen Weitzman ("Greek," "The Sarah Silverman Program") as Greg. Additional cast includes Shelley Hennig ("The Secret Circle," "Days of Our Lives") as Christy.

"Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous" is produced by 3 Arts Entertainment. The series is written by Dan Lagana and Bo Burnham and executive produced by Lagana, Burnham and Dave Becky. Justin Levy and Michelle Klepper are the MTV executives in charge of production.
