There are rumours today that Channel Nine has picked up the rights to The Hills, for a likely summer airing.
A spin-off of MTV’s Laguna Beach, it documents the life of Lauren Conrad and her friends in Los Angeles after leaving her home in Laguna Beach, California.
Entertainment Weekly dubbed the show a “New Classic” and ranked it number 82 on their list of The 100 Best Shows of the Last 25 Years.
Criticism has been levelled that the show is not reality with unscripted scenes set up specifically for filming. In an interview, Lauren Conrad defended The Hills by stating “the show is real, albeit edited to create a storyline.” Shock, horror.
The show has had 4 seasons since 2006.
