    'Surreal' Seconds on Tap at WB

    HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - The WB is keepin' it "Surreal."

    The WB has greenlit a second season of "The Surreal Life, the half-hour unscripted comedy that mines yuks from putting C-list celebs under one roof. Casting has already started on the second batch of episodes, with a new season set to unspool later this year.

    The renewal of "Surreal" comes barely a month after the skein bowed to boffo numbers as part of the WB's Thursday lineup, setting a record tune-in for a WB premiere on that night. Overall, the show has boosted the WB's 12-34 Nielsen numbers 64% vs. the network's 9 p.m. Thursday average last fall.

    "When we first decided to do 'The Surreal Life,' we knew it was a series that lent itself to multiple seasons, given the right mix of celebrities," said WB alternative chief Keith Cox. "Given the success of the first season, we believe we will score an equally compelling cast this time around."

    Cox said "Surreal" works for the WB because it's not a typical reality series.

    "We love this show because it bends genres, placing celebrities in a familiar habitat, creating a living sitcom, which is as unreal as it is surreal," he said.

    The current "Surreal" cast includes a diverse roster of celebs, from Hammer and Vince Neil to Emmanuel Lewis and Corey Feldman.
