MTV Orders High School Paper Reality Show

MTV has ordered a new series called "The Paper," reality fare that follows what goes on at The Circuit, the newspaper at Cypress Bay High School in Weston, Florida. Eight episodes are on tap, and the show is expected to make its debut early next year.

"With "The Paper," we dive into a rarely seen side of high school life -- showcasing the dynamic and surprisingly intense life of students working on their high school newspaper," says Dave Sirulnick, executive vice president for MTV News and Docs. "MTV has always been about reflecting the lives and interests of our audience, and "The Paper" is a perfect example.

The Circuit has won several local journalism awards, including ones from the Florida Scholastic Press Association and the Sun-Sentinel.
