Trailer Extols Glory Of Brooklyn, Youth
The last Real World season set in New York was taken off the air abruptly after 9/11. How will "Real World: Brooklyn" fare in 2009, when it is set to debut?
We've been tracking the show's filming for months, but OMG, how will it compete with this season of "Top Chef" and "Hills" spinoff "The City," not to mention fictional friends "Ugly Betty" and "Gossip Girl"? We hope Kate, Sarah, Bella, Devyn, Scott, Ryan, JD and Chet are ready for their close-ups. (Or at least the drunken fights which have characterized the last five seasons of the MTV workhorse, which debuted in New York in 1992.)
The production has already gotten massive buzz thanks to the myopic New York news media and its status as possibly the first reality-TV show to directly invoke hipsters and hipsterdom. If The Kids like it, expect to see way more closeted hipsters (we're thinking of Kenley on last season's "Project Runway") able to better reveal their true natures to the world. Then, Williamsburg residents will have to find themselves a new scene.
