These days, it seems like every television show spawns a reality show, and most often than not they’re pretty damn successful. After The O.C gained a huge fan base, MTV decided to make Laguna Beach:The Real Orange County…as if The O.C wasn’t real! It totally was! After Laguna Beach there was The Hills, which was sort of like the real-life Sex and the City minus the city…but it wasn’t long until they added ‘The City’ in the sequel. Then we have the entire Real Housewives franchise which was obviously developed from the highly successful Desperate Housewives. Get where I’m going with this?
Now there’s a show on MTV called Washington Heights, a show about a group of young people living their lives and trying to make something of themselves. The look and feel is exactly like HBO’s short lived series How To Make It In America which was actually a really good show. The characters are all young, relateable in their 20s,stylish residents of the predominantly Dominican neighborhood of Washington Heights, New York.
There’s a lot of flavour and a whole lot of drama that goes with living in the Heights, these kids have a really cool East Coast feel about them, some of them are working hard and some are hardly working. Either way, they all look good doing it and I think Washington Heights will be the next big thang on MTV.
Washington Heights airs Wednesday nights on MTV.
