Utopia – Casting Guide

Contestants: 27 per season
Top Prize: $0
Selectivity: 4 Star


Utopia is a reality show that will appear on the Fox network starting the fall of 2014. The show will begin with 15 contestants who have already been picked and follow them 24 hours / 7 days a week while they create a new society. Any person may be exiled which will remove them from the community if they are being non-productive or harmful to the group. This is less a game show and more a social commentary about how groups of people will work together to thrive. As people are exiled and society grows, additional contestants will be added to the group. Presently, the producers are seeking 12 more people to join the group.

This reality show is likely to receive a huge amount of media attention. Participating would be a great method of either become an expert in your field if that’s what you do in the community or lead to writing/speaking engagements based on the experience. This type of show originally premiered in the Netherlands, and it has some heavy talent at the products. I expected season two and beyond of this show to immediately jump to becoming one of the more competitive shows to be cast near the top of 5 in selectivity.
