An ad for auditions for “a new reality show” set in Silicon Valley has appeared on Craigslist and in the inbox of Digg founder Kevin Rose. “NOW CASTING ‘Silicon Valley Reality Show’ Young Professionals (palo alto)” reads the headline, and the major cable network behind the idea is … Bravo. Project Startup, anyone?
The show isn’t explicitly tech-focused, it seems, as “any career goes, as long as you’re living life in the fast lane, we want to hear from you!”
The full text of the ad:
