FOX and Donald Trump are developing Lady or a Tramp, a reality-competition series in which girls in love with the party life will be sent to a charm school where they will receive a stern course on debutante manners, according to Variety. Trump will executive produce the show and possibly come on air to evaluate contestants' progress, insiders told the trade paper. If the show gets greenlit, it could be on the air as early as midseason.
The series, which will combine the competition and self-improvement aspects of reality television with the sizzle of the tabloids, is an adaptation of the British series Ladette to Lady. On that show, party girls are sent to the U.K. charm school Eggleston Hall, where they are taught "how to go from throwing a kegger to throwing a tea party."
Girls are required to wear tweed skirts and pearl necklaces, and taught the finer points of skills like flower arranging and needlework. Contestants then face challenges in those areas, with one girl expelled from the school at the end of each episode.
"Tramp" will follow a similar format and also show ample footage of the girls partying.
Though the show is still in development, casting for the girls is under way. A casting notice described potential contestants as "rude and crude party girls" and as "younger women who are 18-30, love to party and full of attitude."
