E! Conspires to 'Kill Reality'
(Wednesday, June 15 12:30 PM)
LOS ANGELES ( Cable network E! is preparing to serve up its own take on "Project Greenlight," with a cast of former reality-TV folks looking to prove that they can act as well as act out.
"Kill Reality," a show that will throw together a bunch of unscripted-TV veterans and watch as they film a horror movie (co-written by another of their kind), is scheduled to premiere Monday, July 25 on E! While the title hints at the possibility of schadenfreude for viewers, it sounds like the only dying will be the faked kind, or potentially someone's career.

"'Kill Reality' gives your favorite reality stars the opportunity to prove their talents and acting abilities and to show they are more than just stars of reality television, " says Lisa Berger, head of programming development at E! Networks. "Fans of the reality genre will love seeing their favorite stars commingling together and working together toward one common goal - to make a great horror film."
That movie, "The Scorned," will make its debut on E! in September, with a more explicit version scheduled for release on DVD in October. The script is being co-written by "Survivor: Amazon" and "Survivor: All-Stars" alumnus Rob Cesternino, along with Scott Zakarin and Eric Mittleman. It's about the ghost of a wronged woman seeking revenge on those who cheated on her.
"Kill Reality" will feature "Survivor" alumni Ethan Zohn, Jenna Lewis, Jon "Jonny Fairplay" Dalton and Jenna Morasca; "Real World"-ers Trishelle Cannatella, Tonya Cooley and Steven Hill; ex-"Bachelor" Bob Guiney and "Bachelor"-ette Trish Schneider; "Amazing Race 4" winner Reichen Lehmkuhl and "Apprentice" contestant Stacie J. Upchurch.

In classic reality-show style, they'll share a house while making the show and the movie. Cameras will follow them as they learn whose character survives longest and who will have on-screen romances with one another, along with any repercussions those developments might have.,1002,271|95861|1|,00.html
