MTV wraps ‘Real World Paris’

Cast will live in a chateau outside French capital

PARIS – Viacom’s MTV has finished lensing the latest installment of pioneer reality skein “The Real World,” which will take place in a chateau on the outskirts of Paris.

The 13th season will air June 3, at 10 p.m., in a special one-hour episode where auds can meet the seven-member cast as they embark on an adventure to taste the hotspots and Liberty fries in the city of lights.

The six Americans and one Irishman will play out their everyday dramas as travel writers for Frommer’s “Official Guide to Paris,” reporting on the nightlife on both sides of the Seine. MTV hopes the conflict will be driven not only by the usual seven-strangers stuck together, but also by a hefty dose of culture shock.

MTV has already signed up for two more seasons of “The Real World,” slated to preem in early and late 2004. The reality program has been on the air for over a decade, but is still going strong despite the trend toward more hard-core reality skeins. Season 12 — filmed at the Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas — was the most watched season ever among MTV’s core 12-34 aud.
