Why the network turned down the ''Hills'' star's new show

Last fall, MTV announced that it was reuniting with Lauren Conrad, star of the network’s Laguna Beach and The Hills, for another reality series focused on the young star’s burgeoning fashion line. But the network has passed on Conrad’s proposed series, which was more documentary and less glossy reality soap. Says David Janollari, ”It was a great attempt, but it just didn’t feel like a perfect fit for us now.” Conrad responded in a tersely worded statement: ”MTV felt the subject matter was too highbrow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life…. We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.”
