'Awkward': Watch the trailer for MTV's new scripted comedy series -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

MTV is dipping into the scripted series waters again, and EW has an exclusive look at the trailer for the network’s comedy series, Awkward, which premieres on July 19 at 11 p.m. after Teen Mom. Created by Lauren Iungerich, Awkward is about teenager Jenna Hamilton (One Tree Hill‘s Ashley Rickards) who becomes a school celebrity after people mistakenly think she attempted suicide. “It’s got a really unique and completely contemporary point of view about growing up female in today’s day and age,” says MTV’s Head of Programming David Janollari. “The show really embodies our internal mantra of ‘Our lives amplified.’ In this case, it’s a teenage girl who goes from, as she describes herself, ‘almost invisible’ to completely visible and famous in her school because of this misunderstanding of epic proportions.”
