Reality TV Show About Kids from Malibu is Totally Groundbreaking
In a stroke of creative genius, a reality TV producer wants to make a show about high school kids that live in the Malibu area, documenting what happens over their summer vacation.
This staggeringly original idea comes to us courtesy of executive producer Sean Travis ("The Hills," "The City"), and the show -- called "Our Summer" -- is described as follows on Facebook:
From the director behind The Real World and executive producer of MTV's The Hills and The City comes a groundbreaking new series at the helm of social media. Our Summer will feature 8 real high school students on the verge of summer break who will document their lives as they unfold. Unlike any other, this documentary series will feature the real lives of real teens in real time.
Along those same totally believable lines, casting director Shaggy Bajrami tells Malibu Patch that producers are looking for cast members who have "the most amazing personalities."
