Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Another reality series from the people responsible for MTV's The Real World, One Ocean View concentrated on a group of 11 single New Yorkers, ages ranging from 22 through 27, who spent their summer weekends in the same huge house on Fire Island. Extra emphasis was placed on the fact that, unlike many of the Real World participants, the young singles seen herein all held down good, well-paying jobs, and all were responsible members of society, albeit willing to kick up their heels and go wild once a week -- and to relentlessly seek out eligible romantic partners. The 11 principals on the series' first season included senior account executive Anelka, sales-account manager Heather, broker John, health-club owner K.J., junior analyst Lauren, dancer Lisa, businesswomen Mary, Miki and Radha, and corporate headhunter Zack. Making its ABC debut on July 31, 2006, One Ocean View was yanked after two telecasts due to poor ratings, leaving four of its six completed episodes unexposed.
