MTV has given the thumbs up to an Apprentice-style skein in which aspiring journos vie for a chance at a staff position at Rolling Stone magazine. Rumors surrounding the untitled project had surfaced in recent months, and MTV made the news of a series commitment official Wednesday.

According to Variety, The untitled Rolling Stone project will pit writers against one another in a three-month competition, in which they'll cover a range of assignments with the help of the pub's top editors in hopes of clinching a job.

Production begins this summer for a premiere later this year.
