MTV’s docu-series ‘True Life’ will follow three young people participating in the Occupy Wall Street movement in an episode to air Nov. 5.

‘True Life: I’m Occupying Wall Street’ will examine the growing protests against alleged corporate greed through the eyes of three demonstrators holding court in New York City. MTV cameras followed the trio over a two-week period to ‘capture the day-to-day realities of the protesters and uncover some of the motivations that continue to drive them.’

‘True Life’ studies various topics, ranging from drug use to dating preferences, through the perspective of young people.

The announcement comes a week after a posting on Craigslist from the production company of ‘Real World,’ Bunim/Murray, looking for potential Occupy Wall Street participants to audition to be part of an upcoming season.
