If there's one thing Girls does pretty well, it's capture the humor in the (perceived) reality of being a young woman in the big city. But what about a show that captures the reality of the reality of being a young woman in the big city? It looks like a production company is aiming to do that as a casting notice has gone up inviting "real life 'Girls'" to submit their photo and information.
Via Jezebel, this news stems from a casting call ad on Craigslist and specifics on the source of the ad is limited to an "Emmy winning production company." They're looking to hear the real-life stories of actual young women "seeking fame, fortune, love or even a hookup with potential" in New York.
Being young and trying to make it in the big city isn't exactly a novel idea for a reality show. In fact, The Real World did it rather successfully in 1992. That said, times change, and in some ways, things will always be the same, as the early-twenties are challenging years and that can certainly make for interesting television, with the right casting. Given the buzz and awards Girls has received, a reality show inspired by the HBO comedy that focuses on post-adolescent women just starting out in New York could certainly work.
As mentioned, this is based on a casting call ad on Craigslist and information is extremely limited for now, but we'll have to wait and see if anything comes of this moving forward. In the meantime, the vagueness of the ad (and my general wariness of semi-anonymous internet postings) has me thinking people should proceed with the appropriate amount of caution and get additional information if they're thinking of trying out.
