  • A new reality show is casting twentysomethings in St. Louis.

Are you a twentysomething fresh out of college, spending your days at Whole Foods and your nights at Bar Napoli, always surrounded by a group of loud, crazy friends?

We know a television company that wants to put you on TV.

Coolfire Studio -- the St. Louis-based group that brought us Salvage City -- is casting for a new reality-television series here in St. Louis through January, and their casting wish list describes just about every midcounty douchebag in town.

Agents can't yet share any details about the show, including who's airing it, how it works or even what it is, but thanks to a casting call, Daily RFT can tell you what they're looking for. The casting parameters sound like a ratchet version of The Hills, that Laguna Beach spinoff full of rich and bro-y friends.

- Do you like to hang out with skinny white people in weirdly revealing clothes in hot spots like like Bar Napoli, Wheelhouse, Roxane's, Barcelona and Double D's?

- Do you have Champagne taste on a Bud Light budget? (This one is original to the casting call. Even we couldn't make that one up.)
