MTV's Freedom Writers set to debut this week
While the film could be labelled as a hard-hitting drama, MTV Films has also been responsible for diverse mix of teen films and comedies that have been widely successful.
The hilarious Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, Jackass: The Movie and Jackass Number Two are based on television series previously shown by the music channel, while Team America: World Police came from the team behind South Park.
Save The Last Dance featured Julia Stiles as a ballet dancer transferred to a tough inner-city school, while Varsity Blues capitalised on the success of Dawson's Creek and starred James Van Der Beek as a reluctant high-school quarterback.
Other recent releases include Hustle & Flow and Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
