Susan Sarandon producing ping-pong reality show; Rob Lowe producing DC-set docudrama

Two actors are getting into the reality TV game, but as producers, not cast members.

Susan Sarandon is producing a series that follows ping pong players at her nightclub SPiN. “It won’t be the Jersey Shore. It’s more of an episodic documentary. We’re trying to invent something you haven’t seen before that follows a bunch of people in this crazy little subculture,” she told People. “We’re just in the early filming stages now. I’m not sure where we’re going to land in terms of our home because we want the tone of it to be funny and quite different than anything else that anybody’s seen before.”

Meanwhile, Rob Lowe “has teamed up with the production company 44 Blue to launch a reality series with the working title ‘Potomac Fever,’ which, according to a company executive, will follow the adventures of young Washingtonians as they try to move up the ranks in the D.C. scene,” The Washington Post reports.
