Imagine Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow living in the "Jersey Shore" beach house with a bunch of rowdy friends of all political persuasions.
That's the idea behind the reality show "Party Politics."
Doron Ofir Casting, the Hollywood-based agency behind the eponymous “Jersey Shore” and “Millionaire Matchmaker,” has joined forces with a major cable network (yet to be disclosed) to announce the nationwide search for young, larger-than-life political activists and personalities to star in a new reality series.
“We want the hottest politicos in the USA, we want intelligent 21 to 35 year-olds who have had a little life experience and education and can argue their beliefs, and have the knowledge to back up the debate,” Ofir told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “This is a conversation the whole country is consumed by. We want passionate men and women of all party affiliations. Some who are true Democrats, others that are Republicans who support small government, conservatives, libertarians, capitalists and liberals. We’re going to put all these people in a house together, an environment which is light and fun, and see what happens.”
“Party Politics” is casting over the next six to eight weeks both online and at various locations across the country, and is slated to start production in the spring and air as the election season heats up in 2012.
“These are the faces of the future, young political voices who share the common interest of wanting to move America forward but have such vastly different ways of getting there,” Ofir said. “But it’s a reality show too – there is an entertainment factor. They’ve got to be inspirational to look at, explosive and dynamic, or maybe find love across party lines… you just never know.”
