WB plans Surreal World, a show that’s like a celebrity-populated Real World.

The six-episode, half-hour show is currently being cast (40 stars have been approached) and could debut early this fall. “Every episode there will be some story, very likely some activity or event that occurs in the house. It could be created by us, such as there’s no dinner in the fridge, so they’ve got to go fishing,” one of the show’s producers told Variety.
