Hollywood might soon be coming to Hollywood for Ugly People.

Sources tell the Washington Examiner that a "House of Cards" veteran is working to produce a reality show based in the district starring “D.C. up-and-comers,” including Capitol Hill staffers. The show is currently in development, and one source said there's already been a round of casting.

An email circulating among Hill staffers and obtained by the Examiner said producers are seeking “the best and brightest on the hill” [capitalization sic] between the ages of 19 and 29 for a casting call later this month.

One producer working on the project previously worked on the reality show "Breaking Amish."
