MTV confirms what we all pretty much knew….The Real World will be filming in DC this summer (Dupont Circle that is).
A press release on MTV’s site says:
The series transitions its 23rd season to a different lifestyle as “The Real World” will begin production in Washington DC in the summer of 2009 and is slated to premiere in 2010. In the upcoming season, eight young adults will experience life in the nation’s capital as they live and pursue their passions in the city that many of our country’s most influential figures call home.
“The charged atmosphere of Washington D.C., the center of our country’s social and political change, will provide an electric setting for this next season of ‘The Real World,’ said Tony DiSanto, President of Programming, MTV. “We are thrilled to be filming our classic franchise in the heart of where history is being made…it adds a whole new dimension to the great characters and drama our viewers expect and love from ‘The Real World.’”
“Young people have never been more engaged in what’s happening in this country and Washington, D.C., is the perfect place for ‘The Real World’ cast to express their opinions and pursue their passions,” said Jonathan Murray, the creator and Executive Producer of “The Real World.”
“In a time when our country has witnessed the impact and spirit of our nation’s young people, it is a pleasure to welcome MTV and ‘The Real World’ cast to the District of Columbia as they utilize the immense opportunities that the District’s backdrop will undoubtedly provide,” said Adrian M. Fenty, Mayor of Washington D.C.
