Coming to MTV: The Paper

at .

Premiering on Monday, April 14, can MTV's The Paper do for high school newspaper what Laguna Beach The Hills have done for, well, high school hotties?

The goal of the new reality series, of course, is to focus on supposedly real high school student doing real high school things: homework, going to class, hanging out after school, working part-time jobs and, as the title suggests, working for the school paper.

The Paper Cast

The show centers around the busy high school newspaper staff at Cypress Bay High School in Weston, Florida; it especially centers around four students vying for the position of Editor-in-Chief of newspaper "The Circuit."

We'd actually love to see reality TV become a bit more, you know, real. But why do we have a feeling The Paper will simply lead to one of its stars appearing in a sex tape in a couple years?

Here's a preview of the show:
