The maker of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” and other reality television shows is working in Adams Morgan this week to shoot a pilot for a TV series about real estate.
Silver Spring-based Sirens Media is slated to film on the 2200 block of Champlain Street NW for “Project 1542” today and tomorrow, the D.C. Office of Cable Television, Film, Music and Entertainment says online. The production company’s focus is on a home at 2296 Champlain St. NW, according to an email newsletter from the Adams Morgan Partnership Business Improvement District.
The D.C. film office adds:
I am sure those of you who are devotees of reality TV already know about this blog/Web site, Vevmo. I didn’t know it existed until yesterday. So, in addition to the Facebook Group for “The Real World: DC,” you can get your fix here. Blog away!
Dupont (again) – Oh…and there’s a blog that has been set up to track goings on at the Real World house. [The Anti-Real World DC]
Well, duh! Of course there is a Facebook Group for Real World DC. Besides, I cannot write anymore about this anymore until something actually starts happening, which should be around the 20th when production starts.
An update from this morning’s posting… Luis and I wandered over to 20th and S NW late this morning to get a photo of the rumored house-to-be for the DC version of “The Real World: DC.” We heard sounds of workmen inside and, just by chance, saw a couple of guys outside (not workmen). One had a camera and the other one was taking notes. Without identifying their affiliation, I will say that they confirmed that 2000 S Street NW will be the house for The Real World.
Moreover, at least one of the cast members will be a gay man and apparently one of the local venues for the drama-to-come will be Halo Lounge at 1435 P Street NW–across from Whole Foods and located right here in Borderstan. We will try to have more details for you later.
As noted before, I think DC needs some vapid drama with pretty kids doing faux-dramatic stuff in an unreal world setting. Way too many people here who want to save the world (but God bless them). We need some silly balance.
