Paul Iacono tosses his hat up in the air in excitement as he learns that MTV has picked up his TV pilot, Hard Times.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hard Times chronicles the hellish life of RJ Berger (Iacono), a desperately unpopular 15-year-old. When RJ’s anatomical gift is dramatically revealed in front of the whole school, he goes from anonymous to infamous and finds his first sliver of confidence. But he also has to deal with a best friend trying to capitalize on his new found fame, a student body with no shortage of cruel jokes and an insane home life.
Paul told JJJ back recently about the pilot. He shared, “itâ€™s sort of like Wonder Years but for the Superbad generation.”
