New York, New

an ensemble cast in a comedy about how the night that is supposed to be
the best of the high school years can turn into the "WORST. PROM.
EVER." MTV's Original TV movie premieres Tuesday, May 10th at 10pm
"Prom movies are too often based on an outdated, fairytale version
of the experience" said Chris Linn, Executive Vice President of
Programming, MTV. "We wanted to tell a more contemporary story that
will resonate with our audience -- and anyone who remembers their prom as
a night filled with incredible highs, lows and lots of laughs."
"WORST. PROM. EVER." is MTV's hilarious take on the American
ritual of senior prom. Clark (Sabara) Heather (Ramm) and Neve (Bridges)
all have high expectations for their big night but it quickly turns into a

face with their exes, a drunken limo driver, the local drug dealer, the
cops, and a totally unhinged pizzeria mascot. By the time sun rises, the
three seniors have experienced a night they will never forget. The cast
also includes Nathan Keyes, Hallock Beals, John Gemberling, and Vanessa
Simmons. Additionally, The Limousines will be the ?featured artist' in the
