Reality shows have gone from "terrible new thing" to "long-standing feature of our cultural landscape." Still, as is true in much of pop culture, they can get stuck in a rut. The Jersey Shore was a breakout hit because it offered a laser-beam focus on a particular American subculture whose stereotype promised nonstop camera-friendly depravity. But the ideas for follow-ups just seem to be the same concept with different demographics dropped in (including residents of Massachusetts and senior citizens).
We instead propose a different kind of reality show: one that reimagines the everyday life of the IT department employees you spend 40 (or more) hours a week with as action-packed, conflict-heavy unscripted entertainment. We are issuing a casting call for a number of true-to-life IT types who will make America forget that they ever heard of "JWoww." With all of these techies forced to live together in a Wi-Fi-enabled beach house after work hours are done, we expect drama like you've never experienced before. If you fit any of these categories, feel free to send us an audition tape in which you play up all your worst stereotypes.
