Asian in the Media (Apr 10 edition)
Another MTV creation that features Asians seems to be underway. The Tyrese Gibson production company has posted an ad in Craigslist (of all places) for a casting call for Asian Americans:
Looking for interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to JERSEY SHORE, REAL WORLD, THE HILLS, etc. We need attractive Asian-Americans with lively, strong, and unique personalities between the ages of 18 to 30 with equally interesting life stories and perspectives to share, especially individuals who know about and/or experienced the Koreatown life. If you are not Asian but are obsessed with Asian culture or people in some way, email us and please explainMuch like Jersey Shore, they are not looking for Koreans specifically but "Asian Americans", so it could be Asians of any heritage. I do doubt it would be a series since I don't know a lot of people who would want to see a show just about Asians.
