UPDATE: 6:30 p.m. - An RW Productions crew was moving boxing into a Bird Rock home on Wednesday afternoon. The home, which sits above Tourmaline Beach, is a six-bedroom, six-bath house valued at $3.4 million. The crew could not comment when filming or what show would be filmed at the house. Several cameras were already mounted on the exterior of the house.
The rumors are true. Well, maybe …
Now follow the dotted lines.
La Jolla Patch heard MTV was filming its next Real World in La Jolla. The San Diego Film Commission confirmed that RW Productions pulled permits to film throughout San Diego this summer. RW Productions is filming for Bunim-Murray, an agency that casts and produces the Real World along with a few other reality shows including Keeping up with the Kardashians for E! Entertainment and Project Runway for Lifetime.
Several business owners in Bird Rock have confirmed that the story of "seven strangers picked to live in a house and have their lives taped" is true.
While Rob Dunson, president of the San Diego Film Commission is bound by a confidentiality agreement during the production of the show, he did let us know filming is slated to start later this month and wrap up by Labor Day.
“This particular group has done everything requested,” said Dunson. “They have been here before. Very professional. Very upstanding.”
The Real World filmed in San Diego in 2004. That house was located on the San Diego Bay in Point Loma. The 5,000-square-foot house was the former The Blue Crab Seafood Restaurant.
Dunson also revealed that the production company is still finalizing casting and working on a house where they will be filming.
Tamika Young, a spokeswoman for MTV, said, "We have not announced anything yet, and we have not decided on the next city [for the Real World]."
Young also added that she was not certain when an announcement would be made.
