Are MTV producers going after activists for the next cycle of reality series “The Real World”?
The network declined to comment, but a Craigslist casting call is urging Occupy Wall Street protesters to “tell their unique stories on our show.”
Under Manhattan’s TV/film/video/radio jobs, you’ll find a listing titled, “Part of Occupy Wall Street? Real World 27 Wants You!”
The listing asks protesters to contact casting with recent photos and a brief bio. But only if you look really young! Specifically: “If you are over the age of 20 and appear to be between the ages of 20-24, and the description below sounds like you, we want to hear from you!”
The “description below” simply asks, “Are you a part of the OCCUPY WALL STREET movement?”
The current season of "Real World" takes place in San Diego and the drama is decidedly unpolitical. The hard bodies spend their on-camera time hooking up, fighting and frolicking on the beach.
