Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Another "reality" series from the folks at MTV, Sorority Life chronicled the efforts by six young coed pledges to be accepted in the Sigma sorority at U.C. Davis. Though essentially positive and life-affirming, the series also contained plenty of pathos whenever one of the pledges was refused, and also the usual quota of backstabbing and bitchery as the girls endured such traditional tortures as "Hell Week." The series took the finalists right up to the final initiation ceremony, the details of which were forbidden to the cameras (some things still are sacred, one supposes). Created by Sergio Myers, Sorority Life was telecast from June 24 to September 9, 2002.
