Utopia Preview: Who Belongs in Fox's Brave New (Reality) World?

Party girl or police officer? God-fearing or godless?

These are just a few of the casting questions being considered by the producers of Fox’s upcoming reality “experiment” Utopia (premiering Sunday, Sept. 7 at 8/7c) — and we’ve got an exclusive first look video featuring some of the show’s potential “pioneers.”

Utopia, from reality producer John de Mol, is being described by Fox as “a groundbreaking social experiment” that will drop 15 Americans into an undeveloped location to create their own civilization; it’s based on a Dutch hit of the same name.

    Seriously? This show is not popular at all in Holland.. so I wouldn’t exactly call it a hit, but who knows, maybe it’ll work better in America.

    This show just seems like a really bad idea.

  3. Hans van der Kleij says:

    In Holland not a hit? It surely is a hit !!

  4. Diz says:

    They tried this with kids a couple years back. I have no idea what the show was called, but this one sounds just as bad.

    Could you have picked a worse picture of the young lady associated with this show? It’s not even centered!

  6. Eva says:

    Yeah, when it comes to Utopias, I’m going to stick to the British series of the same name :P Any news on the US version of that?

    It seems they are creating a staged Fauxtopia. A police officer who wears his uniform on a game show? And filming something in a LA suburb hardly seems like the middle of nowhere… Plus no people with alternative lifestyles or viewpoints besides work or play or God or Godless? What about Anarchists, Libertines, Philosophers?
