The real Harajuku Girls – and Shibuya Girls – are coming to MTV! And this time, it won’t be in a music video. MTV International has announced a new reality series called “Shibuhara Girls” – their first ever reality TV show produced in Japan.
“Shibuhara Girls” will follow the adventures of four young women as they try to make a name for themselves in the fast-moving, competitive Japanese fashion and entertainment industries. The action will be centered around Tokyo’s famous Harajuku and Shibuya districts, giving the series its name. The “Shibuhara Girls” TV show will presented in a season lasting 12 episodes. Each episode will be 30 minutes long.
Produced by Alan Swarts, “Shibuhara Girls” will begin airing on MTV Japan in January of 2011. After its debut in Japan, the series is expected to be shown in other Asian markets including Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Korea, and the Philippines. No word yet on whether the Shibuhara Girls will eventually make their way to America, the UK, or other Western markets.
MTV hasn’t released any promotional material to let us know what the series will look like yet – or who the real Shibuhara Girls are – but we will update you once we have more information on the show.
