NBC orders pilot for The High Life.
NBC ordered a half-hour pilot episode of Top Model producer Ken Mok’s new show The High Life. Rather than following a group of stoners or marijuana dealers as its title might suggest, the show simply rips off CBS’ proposed series The Real Beverly Hillbillies. E! Online says the show involves “importing a rural family to Beverly Hills, setting them up in a mansion and feeding them escargot and organic produce and other things of that ilk for the better part of a week.” The pilot was already cast “multi-generational families of 5 people or more with dynamic personalities and big dreams willing to be followed 24/7 as they take a fantasy trip away from home for the first time,” and that first episode has already been produced, but NBC isn’t yet committing to a series.
