A new reality show reality show shooting Downtown is looking for a few people willing to trade a few hours of their time in exchange for a free lunch.

Interested individuals are asked to meet on the corner of 5th St and Olive between 11AM and 2PM.

Associate Producer Ben Kraus described the project as a docu-reality series along the vein of "Beauty & the Beast." While he was tight lipped as to the show's title, network, or production company, he said the series would pit seniors versus juniors in cross-generational challenges.

The shoot today would include a battle between two food trucks, with the menus created by the show's participants.

Kraus said he'd been receiving a strong response to Craigslist postings and other phone calls to bring extras, but they still had space for ten to fifteen more people. At this point he said, "It's first come, first serve."
