MTV apparently doesn't think very highly of its viewers' intelligence or taste levels. The network has reportedly dropped Lauren Conrad's upcoming fashion reality show because it's "too high brow."
For this series, Lauren went less Hills and more September Issue. She filmed a documentary-style show that focused on her new fashion line Paper Crown rather than her personal life, but without the drama, MTV wasn't having it. Lauren stuck to her guns and issued this statement regarding the decision:
We sold a show to MTV, filmed it and are really proud of the final result. MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life. We agreed going into the project that this show would be an aspirational one, focusing on my career and my goals and not my personal relationships. We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.
We still want to see the series, so hopefully another network picks it up. Bravo? Sundance? Anyone?
