MTV to hold Savannah casting call for 'The Real World'

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Casting directors from Bunim/Murray Productions, creators of the MTV show "The Real World" will be holding an open casting call for Season 27 of the show on Wednesday.

The casting call takes place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Moon River Brewing Co. at 21 W. Bay St.

"We look for characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds," said Jonathan Murray, executive producer of "The Real World," in a statement.

This season casting directors are looking for applicants who have challenges living an everyday life that most take for granted - struggling with weight issues, affected by a natural disaster, products of home or alternative schooling, followers of unrecognized or non-mainstream belief systems, elite athletes, recent graduates affected by the economic downturn, those involved with goth, emo, or punk subculture, members of a pro-abstinence organization, those who are recently single due to a tragedy, someone who has recently come out of the foster care system.

The qualities are not a requirement to participate in the show, according to a news release. Above all, they are looking for surprising and unusual life stories that have yet to be told on television.

Applicants should bring a recent photo of themselves, which will not be returned and photo ID. Those trying out for the show must 20 or older, and appear to be between the ages of 20 and 24.

For those who can't make it to the open call, applications are still being accepted via email. Go to www.bunim-murray.com/rwcasting for details on how to apply.
