Since the cancellation of The City, there has been no shortage of reality shows hoping to fill its well-heeled (if not entirely truthful) shoes. But while Style.com’s in-the-works docu-series North of Madison has been relegated to the web and Olivia Palermo’s return to the small screen is still but a rumor, none come close to having the pedigree that comes from being produced by R.J. Cutler — the man behind 2009’s critically acclaimed documentary The September Issue.
We heard news of the new show via a casting request sent to us earlier today — but now its been confirmed. Cutler is working with production company Vinnie Potestivo Entertainment on a new reality series that hopes to document “the ins-and-outs of the fashion world.”
While The September Issue may have been Cutler’s first high-fashion product, he’s got plenty of experience in the reality television market. He also produced the political doc The War Room which followed the 1992 presidential campaign of Bill Clinton — in other words, this guy knows what he’s doing.
We’ve pasted the official casting call below.
