Bravo Casting for Silicon Valley Reality Series
Bravo is actively casting for a new reality series in the tech-rich Silicon Valley. A source with knowledge of the project tells The Hollywood Reporter it’s not another Real Housewives venture, so exhale.
The network has dispatched Craigslist ads and emails that have provided a bit of a picture of what they’re looking for, according to Mashable. From the ads and email, Bravo isn't picky about what a person does, but more how a person lives and how big his or her personality is.
“Whether you're in law, business, technology, film, advertising, medical, culinary... any career goes,” reads the ad. “As long as you're living life in the fast lane, we want to hear from you!”
Silicon Valley, which got its name from the many silicon chip innovators in the area, covers the southern part of the San Francisco Bay area – basically the Santa Clara Valley including San Jose, Palo Alto, Cupertino, and Fremont. Thousands of tech companies are headquartered there such as Apple, Google, Yahoo!, and Intuit.
At least one person has acknowledged being contacted personally by a casting director for the show. Digg creator Kevin Rose tweeted an email he received, but it doesn’t seem like he’s interested.
“Yuck, please stay in LA.,” he writes.
