"The Hills" co-star Brody Jenner is getting his own MTV series.

The network has committed to six episodes of "Bromance," which has been buzzed about online recently. The show, from Ryan Seacrest's production company, will feature a group of "regular guys" who come to Hollywood and compete in a series of challenges from skydiving to dealing with the paparazzi -- in the hopes of ultimately being chosen by Jenner to become part of his entourage.

Along the way, contestants will be whittled down via "Hot Tub Elimination Ceremonies" after which rejected "bros" will be asked to leave the bachelor pad dripping wet in a swimsuit, luggage in hand. Bringing to mind various dating reality shows, contestants also will have shots at a "group date" and "alone time" with Jenner in every episode.

" 'Bromance' takes a successful TV format and turns it on its head," MTV senior vp series development Liz Gateley said. "Brody is the perfect fit for this concept; he is type of guy everyone wants to hang out with."

Seacrest and Jenner are executive producing with Eric Podwall. Eliot Goldberg, Jason Henry and Kathy Sutula are co-executive producers. Jason Henry and Kathy Sutula are co-creators. Frankie Delgado, who also appears on "The Hills," is a producer. The project was packaged by ICM.
