MTV’s Real World was last set in New Orleans back in Season 9 and will return again for season 24. As reported on NOLA.com:
“We are delighted to be returning to New Orleans for the 24th season of ‘The Real World,’” said creator and executive producer Jon Murray in the release. “Hurricane Katrina threw New Orleans for a punch, but the city is coming back and we’re hoping our cast members and the series can play a small role in the city’s rebirth.”…
…Jennifer Day, director of the New Orleans Office of Film & Video, said that she has been in contact with Bunim/Murray concerning local recovery nonprofits for which the show’s participants can work during their time here.
“We expect the roommates to participate in some kind of recovery effort,”Johnston said. “In returning to New Orleans we hope to see where the city has come since Katrina, and how much further it has to go.”
