“Naughty In Nantucket” Reality Show Update

Naughty in Nantucket

More news on the television pilot of “Naughty in Nantucket”, possibly to be shot here this month. It’s to be a reality show by ACK Film LLC, shot on Nantucket or Boston from November 12-13 or 19-20.

A casting call for non-union actors was held in Boston this past week after the New York casting call did not fill all roles. The producer is seeking men and women, a personal shopper, mother-daughter socialites, sports athlete (male), bartenders, musicians, and additional characters to be considered.

The casting call describes the show as “a new reality show with an insider’s view of the guilty pleasures of the spoiled, glamorous, social elite as they mingle on the Island of Nantucket.” Pay is deferred, which I would guess means no pay unless it’s picked up.

Synopsis: A docudrama reality show takes a look into the lives of four aspiring young talented people who share a home on Nantucket, who work hard to make money, and mingle with affluent islanders. Naughty in Nantucket also takes a look into the life of a cougarish divorced woman and her daughter who spend their summer vacations on Nantucket.

Oliver Diamond

As part of The Nantucket Arts Festival, Mark Carapezza presented the Nantucket-red carpet premiere of “Detention with Oliver Diamond” on Friday night, September 5th at the Preservation Institute, upstairs at 11 Centre Street, with live music by Four Easy Payments. The project involved over 300 local elementary, middle and high schools students and adults. “Detention with Oliver Diamond” celebrates the raw talents of local children with the Nantucket community and landscape as backdrop. For the past two years, Mark, with help of The Community Network for Children, The Nantucket Boys & Girls Club, The Nantucket Lighthouse School, The Nantucket New School, and The Nantucket Theater Workshop, offered after school classes focused on writing, directing, acting, and the production of television. The result of these classes are showcased in the final product as hilarious and sometimes thought provoking skits and commercials.
