‘Sweet/Vicious’: Watch the First Trailer for MTV’s Vigilante Dramedy

Kristen Baldwin

What happens when a sorority girl and a stoner team up to exact vigilante justice on the rapists on their college campus? You get a new show that’s part superhero series, part topical drama, and part buddy comedy. Created by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, MTV’s Sweet/Vicious stars Eliza Bennett (Broadchurch) as Jules, a seemingly timid sorority sister who spends her nights stalking — and kicking the crap out of — guys who’ve committed rape but not been punished by the law. Her secret life is interrupted by a chance encounter with campus pot dealer/hacker genius Ophelia (Taylor Dearden), who discovers Jules’s mission and ultimately joins her in the quest.

With the light sentences for college rapists like Brock Turner and Austin James Wilkerson making headlines this year, Sweet/Vicious will no doubt spark conversation — and likely some controversy, too.

Sweet/Vicious premieres Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 10 p.m. on MTV
