For those who still miss Veronica Mars on TV, there’s a new twentysomething femme super sleuth hitting the air, Lindy Sampson in MTV’s Eye Candy. Sampson is rather daring as seen in the new trailer for the MTV thriller series which debuts on Monday, Jan. 12 at 10 PM ET/PT: She actually dates the stalker who is obsessed with her, just so she can catch him. “It’s the first date I’ve ever had in a junkyard,” Lindy tells the guy. Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by R.L. Stine, Eye Candy follows 21-year old gifted hacker Lindy (Justice) in New York City. Lindy decides to try online dating, but soon learns that one of her suitors is a deadly cyber stalker. Teaming up with the NYPD cyber unit and her friends, Lindy unleashes her own style of justice. The actress is hosting MTV’s New Year’s Eve 2015 with Charlamagne live from Times Square on Wednesday, December 31 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT and as well as the special Being Victoria airing on Monday, January 5 at 2:00 p.m. ET/PT.
