EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED IN THE NEW SEASON OF MTV'S "THE REAL WORLD: CANCUN" PREMIERING ON JUNE 24 AT 10:00PM ET/PT

MTV Greenlights of the 23rd Season of "The Real World" to be Filmed in Washington D. C.

MTV kicks off the next installment of the highly anticipated reality series "The Real World" from the coastal city of Cancun, Mexico. Eight new roommates will come together under one roof to heat things up this season, as they work hard and play even harder. From sexy hook-ups to blood-boiling fights, the Mexican Caribbean will never be the same as drama unfolds this season on "The Real World: Cancun," premiering June 24 at 10:00pm ET/PT.

The cast will reside at one of Mexico's hottest hotels, the ME Cancun, in a suite armed to accommodate the wild lifestyle of the roommates. When they are not hitting the town, much of their time during the day will be devoted to helping out at StudentCity.com, a travel agency that specializes in providing college students with spring break packages.

The series transitions its 23rd season to a different lifestyle as "The Real World" will begin production in Washington D. C. in the summer of 2009 and is slated to premiere in 2010. In the upcoming season, eight young adults will experience life in the nation's capital as they live and pursue their passions in the city that many of our country's most influential figures call home.

"The charged atmosphere of Washington D.C., the center of our country's social and political change, will provide an electric setting for this next season of �The Real World,' said Tony DiSanto, President of Programming, MTV. "We are thrilled to be filming our classic franchise in the heart of where history is being made�it adds a whole new dimension to the great characters and drama our viewers expect and love from �The Real World.'"

"Young people have never been more engaged in what's happening in this country and Washington, D.C., is the perfect place for �The Real World' cast to express their opinions and pursue their passions," said Jonathan Murray, the creator and Executive Producer of "The Real World."

"In a time when our country has witnessed the impact and spirit of our nation's young people, it is a pleasure to welcome MTV and �The Real World' cast to the District of Columbia as they utilize the immense opportunities that the District's backdrop will undoubtedly provide," said Adrian M. Fenty, Mayor of Washington D.C.
