Long-Running Reality Show -- Often Cited as the Program That Began the Reality TV Craze -- Gets Another Season THR
A reality TV show that is often cited as the program that launched the reality trend on television is coming back for its 30th season. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that MTV picked up another season of "Real World."
The show, which launched in 1992, is the longest-running program in MTV history.
MTV has also picked up a new unscripted program from the producers of “Buckwild,” which will be set in Alaska, the story reports.
Additionally, “Snooki & JWOWW” will be back for a fourth cycle, the story notes. Also returning is Nick Cannon’s “Wild ’N Out.”
“Buckwild” producers are creating a show called “Slednecks” for MTV, which will track a group of “outdoor tough” friends in Alaska. “Buckwild,” which was a ratings hit, was canceled after one of its stars died in a “mudding” accident in West Virginia.
Two other new unscripted shows are on MTV’s schedule: “Beyond Dance,” a dance competition, and “One Bad Choice,” which is described as a “true story” show about young people who have made bad decisions.
The network also picked up “9 Days and Nights,” a docuseries about musicians including Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj.
