MTV's "The Heights" and "Epic Fail" join "Dev," which will chronicle the life of the 22-year-old musician.

MTV has a big season in the works. In addition to the previously announced "MTV's Hip-Hop POV" and the series "Dev," the network has added four new shows to its lineup: "The Heights," "Epic Fail," "Totally Clueless" and "MTV's This Is How I Made It."

Though "The Heights" is just a working title, the series will follow a group of friends as they wade through life and work in New York City's Washington Heights. The one-hour docu-drama will not only display the pride and love the stars have for their neighborhood, but show their struggles as they work to "make it" in the tough and dangerous neighborhood.

For more lighthearted fare, MTV has "Epic Fail," a half-hour panel show. The series will showcase awkward and cringe-worthy moments through audience-submitted re-enactments, text messages, status updates and more.

"Punk'd" better watch out: "Totally Clueless" is a new hidden camera game show where people are placed in uncomfortable situations, but instead of just being embarrassed, they win cash if they figure out they're being filmed.

Lastly, "MTV's How I Made It" is all about encouraging success-hungry hopefuls to reach for the stars. Each half-hour episode will feature two celebrities telling their story and giving advice on how to achieve one's goals.

Premiere dates of the shows are yet to be announced.
