MTV Visits District High Schools for Reality Show MADE | Arts & Culture
A producer with the MTV reality series MADE was in Macon this week interviewing students in six Bibb County high schools. MADE is a three-time Emmy award-winning documentary-style series that focuses on a student and a goal they’ve chosen for themselves. Students could be chosen to appear in an upcoming episode of the reality show.
The show aims to show students that with hard work any goal can be reached. MTV provides students with professional trainers, mentors, and coaches to help them reach their goal. The process is documented and turned into an hourlong show.
MADE producer Jay Lyons spent the week in Macon and gave students tips prior to speaking with them.
“The interviews are pretty quick so bring your ‘A’ game," he said. "The first tip is have energy. The second is look right at me, and third tell the truth.”
He said students that are selected will be contacted in the coming weeks by MTV staff in New York.
Producers are casting their 13th season and have targeted Georgia in their efforts. They are also visiting schools in Atlanta.
