COLUMBIA – “The Real World,” the longest-running show in MTV history, will be holding a casting call at MU next week for anyone between the ages of 18 and 24.
The reality show, created by Bunim/Murray Productions in 1992, focuses on seven or eight people who live in a house together for several months and are constantly monitored by cameras installed around the residence and carried by crews. Cast members are instructed to ignore the cameras except during weekly “confessionals” in which they share their thoughts and feelings about the goings-on around the house.
What: “The Real World” casting call
When: Saturday, March 7, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m
Where: Stotler Lounge in the Memorial Student Union, 518 Hitt Street
What you need: A recent photo of yourself (that will not be returned) and a photo ID. Visit bunim-murray.com for complete application details
The show’s format has expanded from its original concept, in which the members were confined to the house or specifically sanctioned public places, to include mandatory jobs and regular vacations.
The creators of the show, Bunim-Murray productions, will be casting for the show’s 23rd season. The 21st season, set in Brooklyn, premiered Jan. 7. Season 22, set in Cancun, will begin later this year.
