The Occupy Wall Street protest is about to get the MTV reality show treatment.
MTV News revealed on Monday that the network has embedded its cameras with a handful of the protesters in lower Manhattan for an upcoming episode of "True Life," one of the network's long-running reality series.
"True Life: I'm Occupying Wall Street," slated to air on Nov. 5 on MTV, will focus on four of the protesters in Zuccotti Park.

Viewers will be introduced to Bryan, one of the leaders of the Occupy sanitation team. You'll watch as he steels himself against a potential fight with the city when he fears that their request to clean the park is an excuse to evict the protesters.
"True Life" viewers will also meet college students Kait and Caitlin, who are so worried that they won't be able to find jobs after graduation that they set out to recruit their friends to join the cause as they work to keep spirits high among the occupants. The episode will also spotlight Jen, an experienced protestor who struggles to strike a balance between organizing a successful anti-Afghanistan war demonstration and keeping her job as a paralegal.
