Blue Mountain State Gets Green Light

Spike TV today announced a new scripted comedy, Blue Mountain State, has been greenlit and slated for premiere this summer. The football-themed series focuses on what it's like being a freshman at national champion Blue Mountain State, but there's much more to it than football... there's also girls, partying, hazing and of course, class."Blue Mountain State contains four key ingredients to being a guy...football, partying, women and hazing," said Spike TV President Kevin Kay.

Produced by Varsity Pictures' Brian Robbins (Norbit, Varsity Blues, Smallville), Sharla Sumpter-Bridgett, and Lionsgate, the new comedy will feature some familiar faces. Former NFL running back and veteran actor, Ed Marinaro (Monk, 8 Simple Rules, Hill St. Blues), stars as the coach. "Alex," played by Darin Brooks (Big Bounce) is a talented quarterback, content to ride the bench while partying with his best friend "Sammy," played by Romano, who aspires to be the school's mascot. "Craig," played by Sam Jones III (Glory Road), on the other hand, is the school's top recruit and future NFL pro whose life is already mapped out for him by his controlling girlfriend, "Denise," played by Gabrielle Dennis (My Name is Earl). The three must quickly adapt to college life and juggle football, girls, classes and nonstop hazing. The cast also includes "Thad," played by Alan Ritchson (Smallville), a senior on the football team who loves hazing incoming freshman.
