First there was The Hills, then there was The City. Then came TOWIE and now it looks like another (partially scripted?) ‘reality’ series is about to join them.
A Response Source from Monkey Kingdom describes a new Channel 4/E4 series called ‘Made in Chelsea’ as:
“following the unique and aspirational lifestyles of a set of individuals based in the most sought after postcodes in London“
The production company wants to emulate the success (and no doubt, the style) of TOWIE, but expect a posher version for a different target audience.
I’ve never seen TOWIE, but I already dislike MiC. Shouldn’t really judge it before I’ve seen it, but I don’t think it’s going to be very well received by a mainstream audience. Will the ‘cast’ be too posh to empathise with? Let’s wait and see…
