Edmonton, Alberta, Canada…it’s a city ‘split in 2’ by the North Saskatchewan River – a divide that’s as much cultural as it is geographical. While the city’s south side is famous for the UofA, Old Strathcona, artists, musicians, & hipsters…the city’s north side is equally (in)famous for its blue-collar workers, metal-heads, rockers, partiers, bikers, neighbourhood pubs, & ethnic diversity.

In the vein of Jersey Shore and Big Brother, NORTHSIDERS is a wild, racy, and unpredictable ‘social experiment’, as we throw a group of bona-fide ‘northsiders’ into a run-down house, make them live together for 13 weeks, and see if anyone survives with any dignity intact.

We’re looking for the following REAL Edmontonians to fill out our roster of NORTHSIDERS:

- The 18-29 year old oil-patch/construction/trades worker: this young male works up north in the oil industry OR locally in construction OR a trade. He may or may not have a high school education, but he makes over $100,000 a year. He can afford just about anything…and when he hits the clubs, look out.
- The 30-something oil-patch/construction/trade worker: late 30’s family man, loves classic rock & Ryan Smyth. Doesn’t go out much anymore, doesn’t have a lot of use for young people who waste their time working out & clubbing…or who think they ‘know it all’ even though they just started out in the industry.
- The Rocker Chick: she’s 30-45 years old, and this old-school rocker chick still loves a good night out with the girls.
- The Bar Star: this 18-25 year old female is all about the PARTY, loves to post naughty photos of herself on Facebook. Basically, a parent’s worst nightmare.
- The 40-something cougars (2-3) who ‘never grew up’: they may be in her mid-40’s…but they still party like they're still in high school….even if it means partying ‘with’ high-schoolers.
- The 18-24 year old single mom: is: she just turned 20 and has a kid. She may be on social assistance, but don’t worry, she has plenty of cash left over to party every night!
- The 25-35 year old ‘biker-type’: he’s tough as nails and may or may not be into some shady dealings. Fancies himself a ladies man.
- The 18-29 year old gym freak: you all know this guy’s ‘situation’: spends all his free time at the gym, and he’s more into ‘himself’ than any of the ladies he tries to sweet-talk at the club every night.
- The hair stylist: he’s an 18-24-year old gay dude who works at a high-end northside salon (or similar) – hates classic rock, ‘rig-pigs’, & everything about most of the people in this group. They have absolutely nothing in common.
- The 25-34 year old computer/comic book nerd: he’s a loner who identifies closely with the characters on The Big Bang Theory. Not a big partier, never had a girlfriend, never been in trouble. Can this group corrupt him?
- The 18-29 year old aspiring musician: he OR she just wants to make music, won’t take ‘No’ for an answer. Gets along equally well with pretty much everyone...for now.
- The Straight ‘A’ student: she’s an 18-24 year old bookworm with a high GPA, already has her career path planned. She was not one of the ‘cool kids’ in high school, but now that she’s in University, she has something to prove. She hates going to the bar, hates shallow people…
