Uh-oh, there's going to be a brawl in Beantown. The MTV masterminds behind Jersey Shore are reportedly looking for Bostonians to star in a docusoap spinoff, appropriately titled Wicked Summer. The show's casting website is calling for "blue collar, hard working, harder partying, tough talking, damn good looking Mass natives from all over the state." It also spells party as "pahty" and together "togethah," which kind of irks me as a former English major, but OK, I get the joke.
I do think it will be kind of fun to profile Boston residents (who are known for their passionate love of the city and all things Sox-related), but the idea of poking fun at yet another stereotype is kind of obnoxious. What city/culture is next? Do you have any recommendations?
