E! series will follow reality stars as they produce a movie.

A group of reality stars will spend time doing something besides touring college campuses and investing in perpetually delayed cable networks, and a new series will chronicle the whole thing. E! is borrowing the Project Greenlight format for Kill Reality, which will follow stars as they produce “The Scorned,” a film that will air on E! in September. The new series debuts July 25.

Survivor‘s Rob Cesternino is writing the film (along with two others), and according to Zap2it, the movie and series “will feature Survivor alumni Ethan Zohn, Jenna Lewis, Jon ‘Jonny Fairplay’ Dalton and Jenna Morasca; Real World-ers Trishelle Cannatella, Tonya Cooley and Steven Hill; ex-Bachelor Bob Guiney and Bachelor-ette Trish Schneider; Amazing Race 4 winner Reichen Lehmkuhl and Apprentice contestant Stacie J. Upchurch.
