MTV TRUE LIFE: I CAN’T AFFORD MY LIFESTYLE.
One of the producers from MTV’s True Life reached out to us and we wanted to help spread the word about her show idea “I Can’t Afford My Lifestyle (after the economy crunch/lay offs)”. Apparently THE 405 CLUB is a goldmine for said situation - who would have thunk it? I kid. So here’s the premise, and reach out to us if you’re interested…
Were you living large but hit hard by the current economic situation? Did you have a pimped out crib and now have to downsize? Has you new financial status affected your relationships because you can no longer play with the high rollers? Are you dating someone who had it all, but find yourself disappointed to have to swap five course entrees for five dollar foot longs? Do you feel that you can’t possibly give up the life you worked for, but are left with no other choice? If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of these, then MTV would like to hear your story.
If you appear to be between the ages of 17-28 and can’t afford your lifestyle and would like to share your story please email us DIRECTLY at Lifestyle@mtvn.com
Please include a your name, your story, a phone number and a photo.
True Life is MTV’s award-winning series that covers diverse topics that are important to our audience, ranging from pop culture trends to breaking news issues. Topics in the past have included hard hitting topics such as drug addiction (crystal meth, etc), parents divorcing, to much lighter subjects such as being a fan of Justin Timberlakes. True Life crews are able to blend into the background to capture life unscripted and untouched. This enables us to tell stories from the voices and points-of-view of our characters – putting the series in a unique position of reflecting the state of youth culture at any given moment. And, since the series premiere in 1998, MTV’s audience has kept wanting more – constantly tuning in, making True Life the most popular documentary series in our channel’s history.
