MTV Orders Pilot Starring Comedian Esther Povitsky

According to Deadline, the docu-comedy focuses on Povitsky and fellow young comedians living in L.A. The website reports that the 20-something comedian will co-produce the show alongside Scott A. Stone (The Joe Schmo Show) and Rico Martinez (Viva La Bam).
