You Can Work on Good Christian Bitches, Dallas or "Untitled Reality Series." Dunno.

At which point I noticed this want ad: "Untitled Reality Series."
Details provided by something called Strait Productions, Inc. are sketchy: It says only that a "Los Angeles based production company shooting a Dallas Reality/Documentary series [is] currently looking for experienced crew" for a 10-week shoot scheduled to begin on April 4; they're looking for a director of photography, an audio supervisor and other tech staff. I asked film commission head Janis Burklund what the what; she said the folks behind the show didn't provide info beyond the listing.
So I shot off a missive to the e-mail provided, which belongs to one Ben DeNoble, who, says here, did some lower-down-the-food-chain assisting on Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica and The Osbournes. "That seems like another life ago," he said via e-mail, but not much more. I asked for further details about the shoot, and all he would say was, "It is an untitled docu-style show. That's really all the information I can give you at this time." He initially asked if I was applying for a job. I said no (not yet, anyway), just wanted more info. To which he responded, "I wish I had some more info for you, sorry."
And that was that. One thing we know it won't be: that oft-discussed Real Housewives of Dallas, which Bravo's Andy Cohen more or less declared never-gonna-happen yesterday. Thank God.
