On the whole, MTV would rather be in Philadelphia. The City of Brotherly Love will be the setting for the 15th season of ”The Real World,” E! Online reports. Seven new roommates will live in a pad in Philly’s historic Old City area, where it will no doubt join Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell among the neighborhood’s tourist attractions. To earn beer money, the septet will work in a local restaurant.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, producers have scrapped the initial cast and are currently seeking seven new exhibitionists for their well-appointed fishbowl. (Guess the first group weren’t putting enough cheese in their cheesesteaks.) Production is scheduled to start in April.
