MTV announced its new slate of fall programming today, including a new reality show called “Downtown Girls” that, according to the Hollywood Reporter, is:
a reality sitcom chronicling the real-life exploits of five twentysomethings in New York: a whip-smart vlogger/blogger, an aspiring lawyer, a chic boutique owner, a hip music executive and a bride-to-be. Rico Martinez, Dan Lindau, Brooke Posch and Conan Smith of Crossroads TV are executive producing.
But what the press release failed to mention is that the “whip-smart vlogger/blogger” is none other than Daily Swarm reader Sarah Lewitinn aka Ultragrrrl and the “hip music executive” is her roommate, Atlantic Records’ self-described “digital muppet” Gurj.
UPDATE: Ultragrrrl clarifies:
Oh shit!!! I mis read ur email. No, I’m not starring in the show! Ack!
Its someone named shallon lester.
