Sources have revealed that there is a Twitter reality television show in the works, which would feature real time Twitter messages (“tweets”) from the show’s contestants, who will be pitted against one another in an effort to track down celebrities.
The show is to be produced in partnership with Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Reveille Productions.
Amy Ephron, the executive producer with Brillstein Entertainment who conceived of the show and pitched it to Twitter, explained that “Right now, Twitter is an incredible technological and cultural phenomenon.”

“It captures what’s best about Twitter, and it’s a compelling TV show in its own right,” adds Noah Oppenheim, of Reveille Productions, which has been responsible for scripting such hits as The Office and Ugly Betty.
Brillstein has produced such heavy-hitters as The Sopranos and NewsRadio.
All players involved are being tight-lipped about any additional details, however Oppenheim has indicated that they are poised to go into production once the deal is inked.
No word yet on how the celebrities who are to be tracked down feel about this. However, we’re thinking a good title for the show would be “Stalking the Stars”.
