MTV and Rolling Stone magazine team for new reality series

Ever dreamed of being a writer for the most famous music magazine in the world? Meet Krishtine, Russell, Peter, Tika, Colin and Krystal – six aspiring writers all competing to become the new Contributing Editor at Rolling Stone.
MTV and Rolling Stone magazine kick off the new year with “I’m From Rolling Stone” a new reality drama premiering on Sunday January 7th at 10pm ET/PT.
Last summer, the six writers chosen from a pool of thousands of applicants were thrown directly into the mix with a wide array of writing assignments including artist and entertainment profiles and coverage of national affairs, politics and pop culture.

Some of the musical acts featured in the series include Band of Horses, Ghostface Killah, We Are Scientists, The Roots, Lupe Fiasco, and more.  The writers also covered some of the biggest music events of the year including the Roskilde Music Festival and Lollapalooza.

MTV cameras documented the young journalists’ entire experience working, for the first time, in a high-pressured journalistic environment. They compete with one another for story assignments, stress about hitting deadlines and face no-holds-barred critiques from Rolling Stone editors, all while dealing with their own personal challenges.
