"Vice Is Casting for a D.C.-Based Political Reality Show," by Hollywood Reporter's Jeremy Barr:

  • The casting call: "VICE Studios is casting for an experimental unscripted series that will bring together 18-45 year-olds from all walks of life and political extremes to live in close quarters in Washington, D.C."
  • "If you are passionate about your political beliefs and will go to any length (including appearing on 'reality TV') to get your voice heard, we want to hear from you. Whether you have dreams of becoming a politician, ... or if you quite simply want to change the world and are bold enough to put your beliefs up against your political opposite in the most public setting imaginable, then we want to hear from you."
  • The concept may never even become a pilot. But, if shot, the show will be filmed in D.C. next spring.
