Here's the pitch: An acquisition workforce reality show

As with all things in our culture, if we really want the world of acquisition training to be better known and understood, we need to create a reality show for it. I propose the following concept.

The Acquisition Training Reality Show

Prospective episode titles: "The Potomac Shore," "National Mall Rats," "Northern Virginia 22042."

The Pitch: A group of trainees live together and prepare government contracts for six months, all under the watchful eye of 24-hour camera coverage. Watch them discuss boilerplate in the hot tub. See them down cases of Red Bull in order to pull an all-nighter to piece together sections L and M. Watch guest senior level project managers play tricks on beginner levels. Try to decide if the third party introduced in the fifth episode is legitimate or not.
