Maino Stars In Debut Episode Of MTV’s World of Jenks
The teasers for this show have been a little confusing but now that the first episode of World of Jenks is available online, it appears MTV has another hit on its hands.
World of Jenks is an exciting new series showcasing the lives of inspirational young people from all corners of the United States. Each week, 24-year-old documentary filmmaker Andrew Jenks literally moves in with a different stranger to experience a week in their life. Whether on the sidelines with an NFL cheerleader, sleeping on the street with a homeless youth, or in the ring with a mixed martial arts fighter, Jenks brings the audience into the true reality of each subject.
“I want to tell the stories of my generation,” Jenks says. “I want to be a filmmaker that’s able to capture what my generation thinks, how they act and what they ultimately stand for.”
MTV recently featured the first full episode (“Heaven and Hell”) of the show online, where Jenks spends time with Brooklyn rapper Maino as they go from crazy parties and sold-out shows to visiting the ‘hood from Maino’s past. Check it out below:
The World of Jenks premieres Monday, September 13 at 10/9c.
