By Christopher Rocchio, 11/10/2006
MTV has announced that Twentyfourseven, a new real-life Entourage-like reality series that will follow seven friends pursuing their Hollywood dreams 24 hours a day, will premiere on Wednesday, December 6 at 10:30PM ET/PT,
Similar to HBO's fictional comedy, Twentyfourseven will chronicle a real-life group of seven friends from different walks of life as they share their dreams and goals while navigating various pitfalls along the way. In the end, they hope to prove that the strength of seven is greater than one.
Twentyfourseven is created by Greg Carney and Kevin Tancharoen. Kevin Tancharoen is co-executive producer and director. Ken Mok, Jesse Ignjatovic and Rod Aissa will serve as executive producers.
The seven friends appearing on Twentyfourseven -- and their MTV supplied profiles -- are:
Greg - "The Entrepeneur"
This ambitious business prodigy has already taken major steps toward conquering Hollywood. He's produced a feature film, launched a line of energy drinks, partnered in club openings, and started a production company. Greg is determined to launch his family and friends into super-stardom, even though the boys, especially his brother Chris, dont always make it easy.
Chris - "The Rock Star"
The lead singer of The Prom Kings is a lot more interested in hot women and hard living than he is in making it big, at least for now. Lucky for Chris, his little brother Greg has his back and with a little of Chriss help, The Prom Kings has been featured in Rolling Stone and Billboard. If he can follow his brother's lead and stay out of trouble, Chris's future is as good as gold, and maybe even platinum.
Frankie - "The Club Promoter"
In less than two years in town, Tijuana native Frankie Delgado has taken the Hollywood party circuit by storm. Now a big name club promoter, Frankie has joined forces with Greg Carney to take his parties to the next level. Known to roll around town with the ladies, especially when its time to pack a club, Frankie always lets his crew dip into his star-studded Rolodex.
Cipes - "The Musician"
The spiritual surfer known by his last name, floats through his days on good vibes. His cartoon voice, free-loving nature, and laidback sense of humor have given him a lucrative career in voiceovers and acting, but hes looking to make it with his reggae band, Cipes And The People. He's also a hit among the Venice Beach localseverybody knows his name. If producer Greg Whitman has anything to say about it, Cipes will turn out to be much more than comic relief for the group.
Ty - "The Filmmaker"
This writer, director, and star of the independent film Miles From Home is doing everything to break into Hollywood. He's given up his car, moved in with his parents, and memorized a whole slew of bus schedules so hes chasing his dream via public transportation. If the support of his friends and family is any indication of his talent, Ty won't be stuck at the bus stop for long.
Matt - "The Actor"
Since giving up his vices, including sex, this actor has started to rake in the roles. Already in American Pie 4, and with more serious roles as his goal, the budding star is hungry to make his mark on Hollywood. With his lifelong friends the Carney brothers by his side, Matts success is only a matter of time.
Whitman - "The Recording Producer"
Greg Carney's best friend, roommate and business partner is a talented multi-instrumentalist, a self-taught sound engineer and a passionate music fan. When he's not helping Greg keep The Prom Kings on track, Whitman produces music for Cipes. His only dilemmafinding a quality girl in Hollywood.
