MTV has just started airing two episodes of its new reality series, The Paper
, and yet the network is already searching for potential participants to appear on its sophomore season. Apart from looking for inquisitive young journalists who are willing to share their lives with the viewers, the network is also looking for a proud and dedicated school that's willing to open up their doors to the show's producers.
So far, there hasn't been much information on the casting process of The Paper
, though interested applicants are encouraged to check MTV's website for further instructions. Filming for the second season of The Paper
is expected to take place next semester in the fall.
Those who will be chosen as staff members on the second season of The Paper
will take viewers through the breaking stories and stressful deadlines of running a high school paper, just like the first season cast, which includes Amanda
, the paper's current copy editor, sports editor Alex
, business manager Adam
, clubs editor Giana
, assistant business manager and technical guru Trevor
, entertainment editor Cassia
and staff writer Dan
For those who are not familiar, the first and current season of The Paper
is set in n Cypress Bay High School in Weston, Florida, home of the award-winning newspaper The Circuit
, and centers on its fiercely competitive student staff members that exhibit the aptitude, pride and ambition of future leaders as they put great efforts into writing impressive stories and making the best paper they possibly can.
For eight episodes, The Paper
will follow an ambitious bunch of students as they struggle to maintain good grades, manage extracurricular activities and battle it out to see who has what it takes to produce news that's fit to print. Two out of the eight ordered episodes have already aired so far, leaving viewers with six installments to look forward to.
Fans can catch a new episode of The Paper
every Monday at 10:30pm ET/PT on MTV.
