MTV Holds Casting Calls on TCC Campuses

MTV LogoMTV is looking for students to appear in its new television show that connects college students with experts in the career of their dreams. A casting call will be held on each campus next week, Jan. 23-26, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Interested students will have a short interview with MTV producer Nathan Johnson, whose current show, MADE, focuses on high school students living out their fantasies.  “We’re looking for college students who want an opportunity to change the rest of their life,” Johnson said. “They have a great education but they need real life experience or the inspiration to follow their true passion.

“We want to help create opportunities for these students to find their path.  In every episode, they will have to make hard decisions and determine if the risks are worth the reward.”

Interviews will be scheduled in 10-minute segments. The taped interviews will be critiqued and selected students will receive further information from MTV. The casting call schedule is:
