    Why? because I was in an episode back in 1991. At least that is what alot of people tell me. I can't remember the name of the show and I actually never saw myself on MTV when the show aired. To this day, know one believes that I was ever on MTV!!! Likely you dont either, but I digress. The deal is, MTV came to my HS in Dallas back my senior year. The special was dealing with teen issues, blah, blah, blah. Well my story about my parents divorce aired... Anyhow, I would like to somehow get my hands on a copy of the episode or at least a transcript of it.

    Does anybody remember a Teen Life type show from back in the early 90's, didnt last very long at all, from MTV? I will continue to try and google, but I thought I would ask the omniscient HTF for help as well.

    Thanks
    Richard

    Heh, did anyone read his post? He's talking about a news program on MTV, not a scripted show or reality show.

    i thought he may be talking about the show mtv used to air that was almost soft core porn.

    that was anthology type, taking place in college dorms and was essentially about the students having sex with each other all the time.

    what was THAT show called?

    You guys are killing me...It wasnt the 'real world' or 'my so called life', or 'undressed'...Although that woulda been good. It was a 'news' show about teen issues...early 90s aired as maybe one 1 hour episode for a short time...Not on long enough for me to even see myself. Lots of folks in a small town I lived in saw me. The girls were very sympathetic towards me after that show aired.

    If you can find their contact information, ask MTV.

    (I remember Undressed...that show was incredibly funny. Did any of the "actors" from that ever end up anywhere? And if so, think "Undressed" is still on their resume??)

    Nope, not True Life. It was mostly just interviews of teens and then news agenda type stuff surrounding.


    Curious to hear something MarkMel. This was late 1991, early 1992. Bond to be at least a tape somewhere collecting dust or perhaps the transcript of the show.

    I'll search around for contacts/inquiries to MTV.
