Cram ten hormonal teens into a spaceship and blast off: that’s the premise for the ill-conceived reality show Waste of Space. The kids who are cast know everything about drama—and nothing about the fact that the production is fake. Hidden in a desert warehouse, their spaceship replica is equipped with state-of-the-art special effects dreamed up by the scientists partnering with the shady cable network airing the show. And it’s a hit! Millions of viewers are transfixed. But then, suddenly, all communication is severed. Trapped and paranoid, the kids must figure out what to do when this reality show loses its grip on reality. 

Now on to the excerpt!

In this excerpt, Chazz Young, head of the DV8 television network, promotes his new reality competition on the late night talk show, The Perky Paisley Show.

[Chazz emerges from behind a curtain to thunderous applause. He crosses to Perky’s desk and takes a seat on the guest couch, a bright red velvet sofa shaped like a pair of lips.]
Perky: Welcome, Chazz!
Chazz: Thanks, Perk. Are those new hair extensions?
Perky: You bet. Are those newly frosted tips?
Chazz: I’ll frost your tips!
Perky: So what’s this new project I’m hearing about? Something space?
Chazz: Yeah. Something super space. Ten intrepid explorers, all smokin’ hot and in the prime of their lives, risking their futures and dreams and shit for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hop into a rocket and fly to the outer reaches of the galaxy. It’s gonna be epic.
Perky: Wow. What a show!
Chazz: It’s so much more than a show, Perky. DV8, long at the forefront of cutting-edge reality experiences, has once again innovated the format beyond anything that’s been tried before. Waste of Space is going to be brought to you in real time. We’re talking live feeds, streaming 24/7 on DV8.com. And every Thursday episode will end with a live segment, coming directly from the spaceplane itself!
Perky: And is this a competition? Will the participants be vying for a cash prize or a scholarship or something? Are there going to be challenges or games for them to play? Are they going to be eliminated?
Chazz: [chuckling] Patience, Perky. I can’t give away all my secrets.
Perky: Oh, Chazz, you’re so bad. [giggles] So the cast members
Chazz: Please, Perky, let’s not refer to them as cast members. Pioneers such as these deserve a far more dignified title.
Perky: Such as?
Chazz: Spacetronauts.
Perky: Fantastic. And I hear this is all being done in conjunction with a space agency, right? Are the Spacetronauts
gonna, like, do science while they’re up there? Experiments?
Chazz: Yeah. [saucily raises an eyebrow] On each other.
[Crowd hoots and hollers.]
Perky: I like what I’m hearing! Care to elaborate?
Chazz: All I can say is that we’re locking ten angst-ridden teenagers in an area no bigger than a small apartment for an extended period of time. You do the math.
Perky: Chaaaaazz. Are you implying that this will be the first-ever broadcast of hooking up in zero gravity?

Chazz: [winks at camera] You’ll have to tune in to find out.
