CMT Reality Show? U Bet


Country Music Television will chronicle the adventures of six city slickers
who try to become erstwhile cowboys in reality series Cowboy U, officials
said Monday.

In the limited series, six successful 20-somethings who have never been on a
horse are sent to an Arizona ranch to battle animals, the elements and each
other. In the end, one competitor will win a gold buckle and the right to be
called "cowboy."

The rivals include a retailer from Portland, Ore.; a sales rep from Los
Angeles; a fitness instructor from New Hampshire; a singer from Philadelphia; a
student from Lake Tahoe, Nev.; and a commodities broker from Miami.

Cowboy U debuts Aug. 29 from 9 p.m.-11 p.m. with four back-to-back
