“Popular” used to be a title reserved for jocks and homecoming queens — but MTV’s upcoming scripted series Faking It proposes that lesbians may be the new cool kids.
The show follows Karma (Katie Stevens) and Amy (Rita Volk), two best friends who are desperate to be popular. Once someone falsely outs them as gay, they find out everyone at school finally wants to be their friends — mission accomplished! The only problem: They don’t actually have romantic feelings for each other, so they have to choose between being honest or being popular. Guess which they pick?
