K-Town Reality Show Renewed For Second Season of Shenanigans

By Dennis Romero
K-Town, the controversial reality show that proves Asians can be guidos too, has been renewed for a second season, a rep told the Weekly.
The series didn't make it to cable, as originally intended, but its renewal appears to be a vote of confidence in its appeal and in YouTube as a television delivery system with its own gravity.
The show was launched by Tyrese Gibson and reality titan Ben Silverman, among others:
It has your typical girl fights, bro-downs and drunken escapades, and has a production sheen that would have made it comfortable among MTV's offerings.
But K-Town is cut into 12 minute episodes to fit its laptop viewership.
Some in the Korean American community aren't too happy that the series is airing the dirty laundry of its young and spoiled. Too bad.
We're told the second season will roll out in mid-November.
