On last week’s FAKING IT series premiere, best friends Amy (Rita Volk) and Karma (Katie Stevens) were mistaken for a lesbian couple…and went along with it, because it got them noticed at school for the first time.

Unfortunately for the duo, things aren’t going trouble-free: Karma is interested in a guy, Amy’s stepsister-to-be, Lauren, overheard the duo talk about faking their relationship, and after sharing a kiss with Karma, Amy realized she might actually have feelings for her best friend.

So where does the show go from here? I spoke with FAKING IT showrunner Carter Covington about what’s in store for season 1…

Carter Covington on How MTV’s FAKING IT Came to Be

MTV is debuting its newest scripted series, FAKING IT — about two best friends (played by Rita Volk and Katie Stevens) who pretend to be lesbians in order to gain popularity — this week, and for series showrunner Carter Covington (who also created the underrated ABC Family adaptation of 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU), the road to figuring out how to develop this show correctly was a bit complex.

“Mina Lefevre, head of scripted programming at MTV, she and I worked together for many years over at ABC Family; we produced three pilots that didn’t go to series, and then I had 10 THINGS over there,” Covington said. “Last year, I think it was February, she called me and said, ‘We have a project here that really all it is is a title and a logline.’ And the title [was] FAKING IT, which I immediately loved, and the logline [was] cute girls pretend to be lesbians in order to get noticed. And I said, ‘Huh. I can see how in the wrong hands, this premise could be really offensive. But if I were to come in and pitch them this, one of the girls would have to realize she has feelings for her best friend.’ And Mina said, ‘That gets me really excited, we’d love to hear your take on it.'”
