MTV's Girl Group Show Still Moving Forward

According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV is proceeding with development on a reality series about aspiring girl group the Electric Barbarellas. The show was covered quite a bit in the press last month, when reports surfaced that Viacom chair Sumner Redstone had pushed for its creation over others' objections to the series. That's what happens when you are the boss: what you say goes, no matter who gets pissed off, stomped on or annoyed by your actions.
The Barbarellas are comprised of bisexual young ladies on a quest for fame and that is exactly what the series would chronicle. It sounds like it would be full of drama, so it's right up MTV's reality show alley.
Redstone also reportedly demanded that the writer who broke the story reveal the source of the leak which indicated that he forced the show's creation despite objections.
Does this show even sound like something you would watch?
