MTV’s Michael J. Willett hopes so. In an interview with Alicia Menendez he says, “I don’t think anyone wakes up and realizes ‘Oh! I’m straight.’ It’s just always been a part of who you are.”
During the interview Willett talked about his new series “Faking It,” premiering April 22nd on MTV. The show centers around a group of high school students in Austin, Texas; but this isn’t your typical high school comedy. This one comes with a twist.
After best friends Amy and Karma are mistakenly outed as a lesbian couple…they decide to go with it when they see a social benefit to it. Suddenly, they’re the most popular kids around school.
It is an interesting premise, albeit a complicated one and some people are even describing it as offensive.
