'True Life' reality skein to air Nov. 5
The rumor hit a couple of days ago, and now it’s confirmed: MTV is set to air an episode of one of its docuseries set among the protesters at Zuccotti Park in Gotham. “True Life: I’m Occupying Wall Street” will be televised Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. on the cabler.
“True Life” will follow three young people working in New York City with the movement, which has attracted both local and national support as well as plenty of police presence. MTV spent two weeks shooting at the Occuping Wall Street protests, following the group’s day-to-day activities.
The documentary series “True Life” is produced in-house by the network and has been around since 1998; the exec producers are Dave Sirulnick, Marshall Eisen, Betsy Forhan and Jim Fraenkel.
In a release issued Monday, the net touted stats it had generated in a recent survey, revealing that 93% of those aged 18-29 believed that the current economic situation is affecting them personally, and that 72% do not trust the government to take care of them.
