Lauren Conrad's New Reality Show Axed By MTV: Too Highbrow?

Axed! Lauren Conrad's Show Too Highbrow For MTV

Lauren Conrad got us excited about her The September Issue-styled, TV project when she talked it up to Teen Vogue, but all of our reality show hopes have been dashed by MTV announcing her show will not be going into production. Boo! Unfortunately David Janollari, MTV's head of programming, didn't share Lauren's vision — saying of her pilot "It was a great attempt but it just didn’t feel like a perfect fit for us now.” Ouch. Not one to lay low, LC responded “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.” Looks like MTV wanted more love triangles and less fashion fittings! Are you as sore as us (or Lauren!) upon hearing the news?
