Real World: Gowanus?

From an MTV press release:

“Riding high on the successful launch of an accelerated, action packed 13-week episode cycle with more favorite Real World drama packed into 1-hour episodes, MTV has greenlit the hit reality series for a 21st season. Production will move from the west coast to the east coast as Bunim-Murray Productions begins shooting in Brooklyn, NY this summer. Continuing with the new format of expanding the episodes to one-hour, the network has ordered 12 episodes of ‘The Real World: Brooklyn‘ which is scheduled to premiere in Q1 2009.”

Unclear at this time where in Brooklyn the show will take place; some blogs are guessing Carroll Gardens or Williamsburg. If I were in charge, I’d put it in Dumbo.

Also: The 21st season! The Real World first aired in 1992. Wow, I feel old.
