by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 25th 2011 5:30PM
Earlier this week, MTV announced that the newest episode in its 'True Life' series would focus on the young Millennials participating in the Occupy Wall Street movement. Now the network has released the first video promo for 'True Life: I'm Occupying Wall Street.'

The five minute clip follows Bryan, a member of the Occupy Wall Street sanitation team, and fellow Occupiers worrying about eviction from their Zuccotti Park tent city. They're shown cleaning the park in advance of the planned city sweep of the property, which was canceled in light of push-back and self-sanitation efforts. The young organizers also receive some surprising help from their lower Manhattan neighbors.

Lance BassIs the age of the boy band over? Not according to Lance Bass.

The former *NSync member is putting together a reality show with Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean, New Edition frontman Bobby Brown and New Kid on the Block Joey McIntyre to form the country's hottest new boy band.

"It's a really great music show, starring all your favorite boy bands. It's going to be really fun," Bass told Vulture. "They're all going to form a boy band, each, from the most talented guys in America that I've scouted, and then they'll go head-to-head in a competition to see who the best band is, so it's bragging rights for the guy in the group, for sure."

Made and True Life are back

by Kristin Sample, posted Jul 9th 2008 9:02PM
Russell Simmons MTV's documentary series Made and True Life are back with all new episodes next weekend. The network will air two new episodes of True Life and four new episodes of Made. The episodes will air in an afternoon programming block on July 20th from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET.

I think I'm mostly likely to watch Made: Model, airing at 3 p.m. ET. The show will turn Adam Stewart, a hippie kid with long hair, into a male model. He'll work with experts on his appearance for five weeks leading up to a senior class fashion show. There he'll compete with the other So-Cal hotties for a modeling contract. But here's why I'm interested. Russell Simmons and Pete Wentz will guest star on the episode and give Adam some advice. Why them? I guess Russell Simmons is okay; that guy could give advice on how to be successful in any industry. And he does own Phat Farm. But Pete Wentz? Did I miss something?

I put a full description of the new shows after the jump.

Reality Show casting calls

casting callA day hasn't gone by where we haven't received some sort of tip or email asking us, the TV Squad, how to get on [insert reality show here]. Unfortunately no, Simon Cowell does not work for us, and Donald Trump isn't my BFF, so we really can't help all that much.

The folks at RealityWanted.com often send us a list of new and existing reality shows that are looking for new, er, talent, and they've given us permission to make mention of them here. We'll try to make this a regular feature as often as we get a new list.

This time we have The Moment of Truth, Jingles and other new shows.

The five shows MTV should keep

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 6th 2007 11:21AM
MTVDespite the fact that I'm part of MTV's target demographic, I don't really watch the network. I only tune in as I'm getting dressed in the early morning and MTV's running its morning music video block. For the rest of the day, MTV seems to avoid actually playing full music videos like the plague. Instead, they fill their programming schedule with awful reality shows about spoiled pre-teens and dating shows so depressing that contestants are even willing to pee all over themselves to get out.

Now, please allow me to frolic about in my own fantasy world, in which I create my idea of MTV's perfect programming schedule. There are only five -- FIVE -- MTV shows that I would keep. That's right. Everything else should be full-on music videos. In my own MTV, there will be no Laguna Beach, no Pimp My Ride, and certainly no Yo Momma (how did they manage to pitch that?!)
