MTV casting Fandom Rising TV Show. The geek MTV reality show Fandom Rising is now casting for its debut season. The “experimental documentary series” about geek culture is being created by the “masterminds behind The Jersey Shore.” Reality TV shows are all the rage on MTV and this was bond to happen sooner or later. If MTV had been smart, they would have held casting calls for this during all of the comic book conventions this year.
The offical press release for Fandom Rising:
Hollywood, CA (December 20, 2011) – From the masterminds behind “The Jersey Shore” comes a new vision for the future of television.
Doron Ofir Casting and 495 Productions is proud to launch the search for the most passionately obsessed, proudly self-identified pop culture fanatics from the worlds of comics, graphic novels, sci-fi, anime, manga, video games, toys, movies, and television.
“FANDOM RISING” will boldly go where no fanboy or fangirl has gone before! If you are a guy or girl who gets all the references in “The Big Bang Theory,” quotes the Original Trilogy, revels in spotting Cylons among us, joins the horde, wishes to attend Hogwarts, Starfleet Academy, or Xavier’s School for the Gifted, and reveres masters of science fiction and fantasy — this is the show for you!!!.
You are officially being summoned for an experimental documentary series that takes a deeper look at the lives and relationships of people who love fantasy, fiction, cosplay, comics, gaming and science.
“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… men and women were free to create their own universes, passionately collect their obsessions, and proudly celebrate their eccentricities without any persecution from their peers. Now it’s time for the nerds to once again have their revenge, and show just why it’s the geeks who shall inherit the Earth,” Doron Ofir, President.
“FANDOM RISING” is currently looking for those who value brains over brawn, substance over status quo, and march to the beat of their own cantina band. If your life is filled with the exquisite, the extraordinary and the exceptional, you are officially being summoned to join the Fandom Rising!
