Netflix is growing its unscripted lineup with Eureka Productions’ Roaring Twenties, while putting out its largest-ever reality casting call.
Roaring Twenties is the coming-of-age story of eight twenty-somethings who set out to find success in life and love in Austin, Texas, while learning to navigate the “new normal” of America in the 2020s.
In a release on Monday (Aug. 9), Brandon Riegg, VP of unscripted and documentary series at Netflix, also announced the streamer had picked up two more seasons of The Circle and renewed Indian Matchmaking and The American Barbecue Showdown.
“Reality TV is a powerful genre. It has the ability to make you invested in who is going to win the big competition or find true love (or at least a good showmance). It also has the ability to bring people together from all walks of life. We love to hear from viewers who feel inspired and accepted after seeing themselves reflected in our shows. After all, what is reality TV if it doesn’t represent real people?” Riegg said.
“Starting today, we’re inviting fans to apply for their favorite type of Netflix reality shows… Whether you love competition or cooking, dating or decor, style or a social experiment, we might have a show for you — either now or someday soon.”
The streamer has been steadily growing its reality roster with such series as Love Is Blind, Bling Empire, Selling Sunset and newer titles such as My Unorthodox Life.
