WASHINGTON, March 20 (UPI) --
The Lifetime cable network has tapped two political heavyweights to help guide a high school election that will be documented for reality TV.
Former Clinton adviser James Carville and his former Dick Cheney adviser wife, Mary Matalin, will be seen in the series "Election" this summer, Time magazine reports.
The couple will guide the students at an undisclosed Washington-area high school as students campaign and elect officers for the coming school year.
"The real trick with any 61-year-old dealing with any 16-year-old is to get them to listen to a word you say," Carville told the magazine. "I'm remarkably unsuccessful with my own."
