A Reality Show Based on Ski Bums?

A California producer is pitching a Jackson Hole–based series on our special lifestyle

 

Oh dear. What happens when people stop being polite and start getting rad? A Los Angeles–based producer wants to make a so-called scripted reality show based around wannabe ski bums living in Jackson Hole. The proposed show, which has yet to be pitched to any networks, carries the working title of -- wait for it -- Epic. The Denver Post quotes producer Robert Hickey on his motives: "What I'm interested is in terms of that age in our lives when we're 22 and 23 years old and trying to figure out, 'What are we going to do with our lives?' " Because if there's one niche the world of television is missing, it's twentysomethings trying to work out life's meanings. Like the Real World. Or The Hills. Or Laguna Beach. Or, uh, Gossip Girl. We're going to go out on a limb here and predict a lot of red-cup parties, hot tubs, shirtless young men posturing, blurred outlines of shirtless young women, rad jumps, sick air, hangovers, texting and backstabbing among a group of hopelessly dim and pretty young people. Or maybe we're just old and bitter.
