The Drama of High School

Tuesday, September 04, 2007

Known for producing lascivious reality television like the Real World and The Hills, teen TV juggernaut MTV is set to create a new hard-hitting reality series delving into...high school newspapering.

The eight-episode series, to be called The Paper, follows the "dynamic and surprisingly intense life of students" working on the award-winning newspaper at Cypress Bay High School in Weston, Florida, according to a recent article in Broadcasting & Cable (http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/CA6473000.html?display=Breaking+News&referral=SUPP&q=mtv).

The show will document the inner workings of The Circuit, which won several local journalism awards in 2004-2005. If it's like other MTV reality shows, the Circuit is sure to be filled with heavily-scripted backstabbing and drama.

Stay tuned. The show is slated to open in the first quarter of 2008.
