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.

According to the Huffington Post, the show is looking for juniors and seniors form the West side. Producers will consider kids from Santa Monica and Malibu and West side private schools, but hope to focus on a group from Malibu so they can get the beautiful beach backdrop.
