Concept

Swiss Celebrity, YANGZOM BRAUEN, posts an online casting and encourages young Swiss who dream of becoming movie stars in Hollywood to apply.  After getting hundreds of submissions, Yangzom chooses her six favorite Swiss:

 

#1 – JANELLE (20s)  —  A blond bombshell who wants to use her sex appeal to further her career.

#2 – DANIEL (20s)  —  An energetic boxer who is determined to muscle his way to success.

#3 – PATRICK (20s)  —  A narcissist who believes that his looks alone will make him a Hollywood star.

#4 – ATHENA (20s)  —  An ugly duckling who dreams of one day winning an Oscar.

#5 – CHRISTINE (20s)  —  A party girl who seems confused about her true sexuality.

#6 – RENE (30)  —  A car mechanic and Bruce Willis look-alike with a knack for comedy.

 

The six dreamers arrive at the airport in Los Angeles and are surprised as a limousine picks them up.  As they arrive at their new home, they realize that their house isn’t some Beverly Hills mansion, but rather a modest house.  The different personalities quickly come to surface.

 

The next day the six Swiss are in for another surprise when “Real World” meets “Real Hollywood.”  Yangzom breaks the news: Only rent is paid, everything else, like food, head shots and acting class must be earned by the dreamers themselves.  Some of the wannabe stars are pissed, but Yangzom provides an option for the Swiss to make some money; everybody gets a “Flip” camera and is encouraged to capture their journey on video.  For every second that is being used in the reality show, they will get $10.00.

 

The stage is set and the Swiss start exploring Hollywood trying to find their own way to success.  The first season includes everything from rude awakenings in acting class to embarrassing castings to Hollywood parties with celebrities and ends with a trip to Las Vegas where the six get lost and stuck in the desert.
