America's Next Top Book Editor

Contents of an e-mail I received yesterday:
[Production company] is casting a new reality show that takes place in the world of NYC book publishing. The show is in the same vein as "Top Chef" or "Project Runway," but about books! We're looking for people who want to become a book editor at a major publishing house.

We're looking for interesting personalities with strong opinions obviously, but anyone who has a passionate desire to be a part of the publishing world would be great. If you know of anyone who might be interested please have them write to us [e-mail redacted]. Let us know why you would be great for this show! Best to include a picture of yourself and write "book editor" in the subject line of the email.
Hooboy. (See also: "a cross between "Jersey Shore" and "Anna Karenina.")
