Sadly, reliable sources inform me that this is not a trailer for an actual show just an aspiring director trying to get noticed. But as a Gossip Girl fan now transplanted to DC, I kind of want to see it.
One problem here, however, is that DC Prep is the name of a real school, a public charter school in Northeast mostly serving low-income families. And, by most accounts, doing a damn fine job of it getting good results for disadvantaged kids who would otherwise be wasting away in the distinctly subpar DCPS system. They're trying to steadily scale up the size of their operation both to help more students but also to try to prove that they have a concept that can work at larger scales and be a model for systematic changes.
