You know that a scripted show is successful when it's turned into a reality spin-off!
And that's just what's happening with HBO's Girls.
A casting notice for a reality show was posted on Craigslist, calling for "twenty-something young women seeking fame, fortune, love or even a hookup" within Manhattan and Brooklyn that just reeks of pretty much any plot from an episode of the Lena Dunham show.
The casting call reads:
"Ever feel like life in the big frantic city is just too much? Are you a twenty-something young woman seeking fame, fortune, love or even a hookup with potential? How do you get from here to there when you can't even get a seat on the L train! Come to a casting call with our Emmy-winning production company and tell us your dreams and woes, your highs and lows, your tales of *** in the city and the outrageous opportunities that have come your way. Is your circle of friends bound together by not just the parties, fights, and brunches but frequent bouts of commiserating over your struggles? It isn't easy taking the road less travelled, but making it as a writer, designer, entrepreneur, actress/model or glorified dog walker never is!
The real life television show we are making follows the trials and tribulations of an ensemble of wise-beyond-their-years young ladies. We are with you living the dream in hipster Brooklyn and lower Manhattan. Only well educated and cultured extroverts need apply. Are you thinking about that show—"Girls?" Well we didn't say it but….now that you mention it."
So, we're expecting a lot gratuitous nudity and sex if that's the case then!
Besides, isn't this premise basically a twist on The Real World, The Hills, and Bad Girls Club? Okay, maybe not BGC, but we wouldn't say no to girls throwing punches at each other….
