MTV announced yesterday that its new scripted thriller, Eye Candy, will premiere on Monday, January 12 at 10:00 p.m. EST/PST. Based on the best-selling novel by R.L. Stine, the 10-episode drama centers on a 21-year-old hacker named Lindy (played by Justice), who is persuaded by her roommate to give online dating a try.

Lindy has a gift for seeing clues and connections in the digital world that others can’t, and she begins to suspect that one of her online dating suitors is a deadly cyber stalker.

"My character Lindy, she is a computer hacker. All her life she's been super into computers and video games, that sort of thing. She's like a little bit on the nerdy side and she's not completely sure of herself or very secure, so she definitely has some issues going on there," Justice told us of her character.

"But it's basically about this serial killer who zones in on my character and is playing mind games with me and trying to ruin my life really. It's totally different than anything I've ever done. It's a much more mature role, and it's kind of like twisted, creepy and suspenseful, so I'm excited about it."

Sounds interesante! Will you be tuning in come January?
