DESCRIPTION: (from MTV's press release, August 2009) Actor Robert Hoffman, the multi-hyphenate star of this summer's "Alien's in the Attic" and "Step Up 2," tackles reality, comedy, sketch and variety in a series for the new millennium. It is "In Living Color" for the digital age as MTV gives Robert a platform to show off his inventive grass roots style of performance in a wild combination of comedy, dance, viral video and hidden camera stunts. From his epic character 'Urban Ninja,' pushing 30 million views online, and remarkable dance ability, to his gift for shooting guerilla style comedy, Robert will blow MTV viewers away with this original, modern variety show.
