MTV bring "Occupy Wall Street" to their True Life show

Occupy Wall Street protesters

MTV announced on Monday that they have filmed an episode of True Life featuring Occupy Wall Street

Mingling with protestors, MTV has followed the lives of four protestors in lower Mathattan in the midst of “Occupy Wall Street.”

The episode, “True Life: I’m Occupying Wall Street,” is set to air November 5th at 6/5 central time on MTV.

The episode will follow one of the leaders of the Occupy sanitation group, two college students worried about the job market after graduation and one person who struggles between a job as a paralegal and staying active in the protest world.

Interestingly, MTV, the channel that is airing the show, is a part of a Viacom, a company that trades on Wall Street. We will have to wait and see if this conflict is shown in the episode or if “Occupy Wall Street” is just in it for the publicity.
