WORLD OF JENKS

World of Jenks small logo
Last season, "World Of Jenks" scored MTV's highest ratings ever for a series premiere, and followed filmmaker Andrew Jenks as he moved in with twelve inspirational individuals and lived with each of them for one week.

Now Jenks is back. But this time, he's found three young people with lives so extraordinary that he had to spend an entire year experiencing life through their eyes.

Kaylin is a bold and beautiful fashion designer striving to make it in New York City despite the cancer diagnosis that threatens her life. D-Real is a dancer in a crew whose video has gotten over 4.5 million hits on YouTube but whose day in the sun is shadowed by his brother's recent murder. And Chad is last year's fan favorite: a young guy with autism whose zest for life and friendship with Jenks is like nothing you've ever seen on TV before.

Enlightening and uplifting, heartbreaking and hilarious, "World Of Jenks: Season 2" promises to set a new standard for gripping documentary programming on MTV.
