Another Reality Show Coming to the Lower East Side?
You may want to sit down and brace yourself for this. Hot on the heels of news that a music-themed reality show would invade the Lower East Side, another program on a “major cable network” is allegedly in the works. Yesterday, a reader commented that Central Casting called, propositioning him to participate in a new reality show about a family on the Bowery. Is this really what the neighborhood is coming to?

I got a call yesterday from central casting wanting to do a reality show with a Bowery family? Is America returning to skid row in all cities or just NY? And what could be the reason, couldn’t they get drunk in Scarsdale or Paramus?
…they put out the bait of 200 a day for each person 100 for children for a month.
We did some digging and found the following Craigslist post from this past Monday. It seems to confirm all the information we received so far. The mysterious cable network could be USA, given the insertion of the tagline “characters welcome.”
