Twilight Spawns Its Own Reality Show in Forks, WA
December 22, 2009 at 8:39 AM
First, life imitated art when The O.C. became the inspiration for a little reality show called Laguna Beach. Then, Desperate Housewives served as the basis for the original Real Housewives, and now it looks like The Twilight Saga may be spawning its own reality show too.
Once upon a time, Forks, WA was a sleepy little town in the middle of nowhere, but thanks to Stephanie Meyers, who set the Twilight books in Forks, the town has become the destination for fans of the franchise. There is even a documentary about the community called "Twilight in Forks," which will be released on DVD with "New Moon." So its no surprise that reality TV execs have come knockin' on Forks' door looking for the next big reality TV stars.
A Los Angeles-based television production company is holding a casting call in Forks today and tomorrow for a reality show that would star local residents. The casting call will take place at the Twilight Lounge at 81 North Forks Ave. Today's casting call starts at noon and ends by 4 p.m. On Wednesday interviews will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
If the show is picked up by a network it probably won't feature any real life vampires but it will surely have a few love triangles and cat fights, after all, isn't that what reality TV is all about?
