Vice Studios is putting out a casting call for a new “Real World” type of group-living reality television series to be filmed in Washington, D.C.

In an announcement on Backstage, the studio says it is looking for individuals between the ages of 18 and 45 “to live in close quarters” in the nation’s capital.

“If you are passionate about your political beliefs and will go to any length (including appearing on ‘reality TV’) to get your voice heard, we want to hear from you,” the listing reads.

{mosads}The casting call, which was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, includes various descriptions of potential cast members, searching for a diverse group of people.

“Whether you have dreams of becoming a politician, or you think all politicians are crooks; whether you think its better to be judged by twelve than carried by six, or think that Obama really should have taken everyone’s guns away; or if you quite simply want to change the world and are bold enough to put your beliefs up against your political opposite in the most public setting imaginable, then we want to hear from you.” 

Vice in recent years has entered into the documentary film business and last year launched a nightly news show on HBO titled “Vice News Tonight.”

A spokesperson for Vice told The Hill the casting is still in the very early stages.
