BET casting for College Hill Interns, which will be shot in Chicago

For the fifth season of BET’s College Hill, the network is following the lead of its older cousin The Real World and casting people who want to do more with their lives than party.

The show, which most recently set its fourth season in the Virgin Islands, is casting Saturday in Boston New York and Tuesday in New York for College Hill Interns, which “wants the go-gettas — those with hustle and drive — who wouldn’t mind a little shine on the small screen” and are “young, gifted and on your grind.”

The official rules document says those selected “must be willing to live in the CH Interns house located in Chicago for approximately 6 – 8 weeks during the summer of 2007. … This group of individuals, while meeting the technical requirements of this internship, must also meet the requirements of his or her educational institution as it relates to their guidelines for internship participation (whether it be GPA requirements, Academic probations, etc.)”
