Remember Jay Gormley, the one-time reporter for Channel 11? Remember his movie idea, $30,000 Millionaires, a comedy about “five vacuous Dallas bachelors striving to maintain upscale lifestyles via maxed-out credit cards”? It looks like it will become a reality [pause] show on television. The producers of Jersey Shore, The Osbournes, and Punk’d are planning to shoot the show in Dallas. From the casting call:
We are in search of Dallasites making less than $40k a year who are clever, creative, and resourceful enough to live like rock stars on a shoestring budget for an all new television series! Despite the bad economy, you have a pimpin’ ride, you’re dressed to the nines, and can make it on the guest list at the hottest clubs in town. How do you do it? Show the rest of the world how to “fake it until you make it!”
I think former city councilman Dave Neumann should apply. Show ’em how he used his old city-issued parking pass to park for free all over town! Show ’em how he duped the Police and Fire Pension System to give him a $5,000-per-month contract to do nothing! I’d watch.
