MTV VISITS THE FRONT LINES OF A MOVEMENT IN "TRUE LIFE: I'M OCCUPYING WALL STREET" ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH AT 6PM ET/PT

New York, NY (October 24, 2011) - MTV's Emmy award-winning series "True Life" is set to take viewers deep inside the movement that has spread rapidly throughout the U.S. and abroad with the premiere of "True Life: I'm Occupying Wall Street" on Saturday, November 5th at 6pm ET/PT.

Following three young people on the front lines of the movement in New York City, MTV embedded its cameras over a two-week period to capture the day-to-day realities of the protestors and uncover some of the motivations that continue to drive them.

MTV recently conducted a survey* of Millennial Adults to gauge their feelings on current economic conditions, the government and its impact on their generation and it's clear that economic concerns are front and center for young people today.

The survey found that:

· 93% believe that the current economic situation is affecting them personally

· 63% are more concerned about the economy than they were six months ago

· 72% Do NOT trust the government will take care of their well being

· 76% believe their generation is at a serious disadvantage for entering the workforce in the current economy

In this episode of "True Life" viewers will be taken to heart of the action where they will meet Bryan, one of the leaders of the Occupy Wall Street sanitation team. Bryan joined the protest to express his disgust at the relationship that government has with big business. While camping out in Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan, he becomes fearful that the city will use sanitation issues as an excuse to evict the protesters and kicks into overdrive to prepare for the impending showdown.

Meanwhile, "True Life" cameras are with Kait and Caitlin, two college students worried that they won't be able to find jobs when they graduate. The passionate pair tries to recruit their friends to join the cause and work to keep spirits high among the occupants. These young people face opposition, unfavorable conditions and potential arrest as they push for economic and social equality.

"True Life" is Executive Produced by Dave Sirulnick, Marshall Eisen, Betsy Forhan and Jim Fraenkel of MTV.
