MTV Entertainment Studios is the film and television production arm of MTV Entertainment Group. Founded in 1991 as MTV Productions and in 1996 as MTV Films, it has produced original television shows like Beavis and Butt-Head, Æon Flux, Jackass, My Super Sweet 16, Daria, Clone High and The Real World and films such as Election and Napoleon Dynamite. Its films are released by fellow ViacomCBS division Paramount Pictures. On August 21, 2006, Nickelodeon Movies, Comedy Central Films, and MTV Films became full labels of the Paramount Motion Pictures Group. By 2017, Paramount Players was created as a joint venture with MTV Films, Nickelodeon Movies, and BET Films. In 2019, MTV Studios launched MTV Documentary Films, a label producing and acquiring documentary features. In 2020, MTV Films was folded into MTV Studios. The following year, MTV Studios became MTV Entertainment Studios, encompassing content for and based on all of MTV Entertainment Group's brands.
