BOZEMAN - Ten Webisodes of a CBS.com series "Heckle-U" are scheduled to be filmed during two Montana State men's basketball games later this month.

The series follows an underachieving slacker named Chance, played by Owen Benjamin from the MTV show "Punk'd," who excels at heckling during college basketball games. The show also includes Tom Arnold as Chance's bartender uncle Lou.

The "Heckle-U" Webisodes are scheduled to begin airing online in February and continue through the NCAA basketball tournament, which starts in March.

NuMedia Studios, which is shooting the Webisodes, chose MSU for the backdrop because several crew members are MSU alumni, including development director Brian Skuletich.
