KQED: Is '94110,' San Francisco's Techie TV Drama, Just Performance Art?

When news hit last month of a television production company holding auditions for a new reality series called 94110, about “six leading technology executives living, learning, and loving together in San Francisco’s Mission District,” many on Twitter and other online forums asked, “Is this real?”

Despite criticisms of the show’s character profiles and dialogue, close to 100 local actors auditioned for the show over a two-day period in May. 

But now, with more information known about the team behind 94110, skepticism of the show's validity seems warranted, especially when considering that a noted prankster is involved. The point person for the show -- described by one producer as “Mark Zuckerberg fan fiction” -- is Oakland performance artist Scott Vermeire.
