“Potomac Fever” Reality Show to be launched in Washington, D.C.


First, there was “The Real World”, then “Top Chef“, then “The Real Housewife of D.C.”, and now another Reality Show  called “Potomac Fever” by Rob Lowe. Given he has always had an affinity for the adventures of young Washingtonians, I think this is a perfect role for him.

Actor Rob Lowe has teamed up with the production company 44 Blue to launch a reality series with the working title “Potomac Fever,” which  will center on real-life aspiring politicos as they look to move up the ranks of power in the nation’s capital.

The news comes less than two weeks after the D.C. season of Bravo’s “Top Chef” opened with the smallest crowd since the first season in March 2006, and a few months after MTV’s long-running “Real World” franchise limped out of Washington with the lowest-rated season in the show’s history.

The series seems right up Lowe’s alley, even though his Washington experience is largely fictional. The actor was well known as the White house deputy communications director on NBC’s political drama “The West Wing,” and he just departed ABC’s soap “Brothers & Sisters,” on which he played a senator. He also recently kicked off a recurring stint on NBC’s mockumentary “Parks and Recreation,” trying out his comedic side as a slightly unbalanced government auditor.
