Andrew Jenks Lands Book Deal with Scholastic

MTV’s World of Jenks star Andrew Jenks has inked a book deal with Scholastic.

Andrew Jenks: My Adventures as a Young Filmmaker will contain personal stories, photos and life lessons. The book will be published in March 2013. The Creative Artist Agency negotiated on behalf of Jenks with publisher Debra Dorfman.

Here’s more from the release: “Jenks rose to fame with his innovative MTV documentary series, World of Jenks, where he lived the life of a different person (a homeless teen, a teen with autism, a rapper, an NFL cheerleader, and more) in each episode. The World of Jenks premiere garnered 4.8 million viewers, marking it MTV’s highest rated series launch. The second season of the show is set to premiere in fall 2012. Jenks is also a correspondent for MTV’s 2012 election campaign, ‘Power of 12.’”
