Underemployed is an American comedy-drama television series on MTV. The series premiered on October 16, 2012 and ended on January 12, 2013.
The series evolves around a group of five fresh graduates who met and became close friends during college.
Initially, each had their big dreams and were very determined to make them happen: Lou wanted to pursue graduate school and eventually become an environmental lawyer; Raviva broke up with Lou to move to Los Angeles in the hope of making it in the music industry; Miles wanted to be a model and the face of Calvin Klein; Sophia wanted to become a writer; and Daphne just wanted to be successful.
Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out.

The Chicago Tribune said the show needs to offer a lot more than what was served in the first few episodes to compete on the level of Girls on HBO and Workaholics on Comedy Central. The New York Times said the show is a botched attempt at a dirty-sexy-funny show.
