MTV describes the Chicago-set show thusly: Five college grads are set to dazzle the world with their brilliance. A year later, cold reality has set in and the group struggles, often comically, to stay optimistic through dead-end odd jobs, terrible bosses, romantic mistakes and major life changes.”
In a slight departure from the network’s usual reality series, the Chicago-based show will be shot in various Chicago locations through Aug. 10, according to the Chicago Film Office.
“Film production, whether it’s MTV’s ‘Underemployed’ or ‘Boss,’ all come with a number of production vehicles, trucks, crew and equipment,” said Rick Moskal, director of the Chicago Film Office. “That’s the normal course, so there is a disruptive element. But residents have been given notice in order to mitigate any disruptions.”
