Celebrity spotting is quite a hobby in the glamorous town of Hollywood, and, like ravenous birds of prey, several no-name kibitzers report seeing superstar Leonardo diCaprio going in and out of the NBC studios recently. Of course, aside from the swoon-worthy attention that surrounds the Academy Award nominee, there’s also the buzz among the crowd that this is most probably the pitch for his new green living reality show, E-topia.
Conceptualized by the same masterminds that gave us Survivor and Treasure Hunters, this eco-friendly show wants to bring the cameras to a community that has been destroyed by forces of nature and build it up into a vision of the future. As Craig Pilligan, one of the developers of the show, says
“At the end of the day, we’re all going to have to change the way we live, the way we burn and use fuel. … We’re trying to show the country and the world by example, town by town by town, how we can change the way we live and fight global warming.”
Well, hopefully this project gets the go signal from NBC, and starts production before another season of The Love Shack or The Bachelor gets picked up. Then maybe there would be something good to watch on the reality TV circuit again.
