A production company is planning to shoot a reality show in Montauk in July and August and is looking for 21- to 30-year-olds who are local to the Hamptons or plan to visit for the summer, according to a casting call circulating the Internet.
"We are partnering with a major television network to bring the fun, drama and ups and downs of summer in The Hamptons to a national audience," the call from Elephant Eye Films in Manhattan reads. The casting call promises, "This is not 'Jersey Shore.' It's classier, smarter."
The "Jersey Shore," an MTV reality show, has itself been rumored from time to time to be planning to shoot a season in the Hamptons.
The name of the planned Hamptons reality show has yet to be revealed, but to get an idea of what the show will be like, just check out the casting call:
- Do you like to have fun, enjoy the limelight, have goals that you are trying to obtain (like starting a business, engaging in a new job, or winning a surf competition, etc.), enjoy surfing and the beach, like to party, know the scene, are new to the scene, have boyfriend/girlfriend problems, work hard to be able to afford a great lifestyle, don't work at all because Daddy pays for everything, or just simply have a lot of charisma and want a shot at being on TV?
Those who wish to try out can send photos and resumes and/or descriptions of why they want to be on the show to email@example.com.
The shoot is planned from July 1 to Aug. 31. East Hampton Town Clerk Fred Overton said no one has applied for a film permit yet, but they have until seven days before the first day of shooting to do so. If the shoot is taking place exclusively on private property, a permit will not be required. However, a company planning to shoot on public beaches, streets, sidewalks and parks must obtain a permit for $250 a day and may be subject to paying for police overtime costs, Overton said.
