Another former Surreal Life cast member and another mogul may both soon have their own reality shows.
Ron Jeremy, one of the stars The Surreal Life 2, is talking to ABC series about a possible series. AVN reports that “Negotiations with the ABC network for a Ron Jeremy reality-TV show are progressing, according to publicist Steve Banan, who revealed that in a conversation he had with executives last Friday, interest was shown ‘in having several ABC reality show producers take a look at the project.'” Jeremy’s publicist will meet with ABC reps to talk about the possibility of a series.
Meanwhile, Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner is talking to MTV about a series that would be “modeled after” The Apprentice, The New York Post reports. Although the show is not a done deal, the paper says that “Insiders say the basic plot will involve a team of young rock journalist wannabes who are sent out across the country to cover stories with the aim of getting an article published in the magazine — and landing a full-time editor’s job.”
