Another reality television show needs a biker. J.P. Garzone, who has previously worked as a casting associate with the Fox series Kitchen Nightmares, is now casting a show called Utopia.
Garzone writes: “We are looking for a diverse group of people because America is diverse. We want as many groups and demographics represented as possible. There will be lots of different skill sets there too. One group we feel needs to be represented is the MC community. This group is well known but often misunderstood. We want to have someone that can represent this lifestyle and show audiences that they are people, with families, honor, pride and morals. Whether they have been formerly incarcerated or not, does not matter. We cannot accept anyone on parole or probation, unfortunately.”
“The show we are doing is more social experiment than reality show but it is going to be a huge hit on a major network. Any help in spreading the word is greatly appreciated. This could be a great opportunity for someone to represent the MC community and use it as a soundboard to showcase the truth about the riding community in America, speak on injustice and squash the stereotypes.”
Let’s Read The Press Release
You can decide for yourself if joining this show is better than prison. The press release says:
“Can a perfect world be created? From unscripted mastermind John de Mol, and based on the hit Dutch television series of the same name, Utopia is a bold new unscripted series that moves a group of everyday people to an isolated, undeveloped location – for an entire year – and challenges them to create their own civilization.
“‘Utopia will be the largest, most ambitious social experiment on television, and I’m thrilled that Talpa Media USA has chosen Fox as its U.S. broadcast partner,’ said Simon Andreae, Executive Vice President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. ‘The series offers people from all walks of life the chance to start all over again and re-write the rules of civilization as we know it. It addresses fascinating and fundamental questions about human law, morality and social structures, wrapped in an irresistible and truly forward-thinking television format.’”
“With no existing power structures and limited amenities, these ‘pioneers’ must draw on their own ideals and everything they know about societies around the world, to create a new one…will it be better? Will they rewrite the rules they have always lived by? Will they falter or prosper?
“As the Utopians build the new society, every decision counts. Each must try to become indispensable to the group or risk being exiled to their regular lives and replaced by potential newcomers who have been vying to join.
“With cameras following the Utopians 24/7, viewers can watch their society unfold, both weekly on Fox and also online. As they observe the inhabitants living together, and building their new existence, viewers themselves will have the chance to become a
valuable and powerful asset to the community, and ultimately to question whether Utopia remains an elusive but alluring fantasy, or whether the pioneers have truly realized their dream.”
