BET’s hit reality docu-drama College Hill has been spun off into a new
series College Hill Interns. Going beyond campus grounds, ten bright
students and recent grads take on Chicago for the internship experience
of a lifetime.
According to a BET press release, although the previous casts included a plethora of colorful personalities, the College Hill Interns take it to another level. The interns were selected from hundreds of applicants who applied during the national casting for the series. The interns all have strong distinctive personalities, grade-A ambition and a cut throat competitive edge.
