A controversial reality TV show which featured two arrests and a sexual assault investigation during its last visit to San Diego is making a return appearance.
Neighbors told 10News the MTV series "The Real World" is already setting up shop inside a multi-million dollar home in the Bird Rock neighborhood, just south of La Jolla.
The show has been known for its hard partying ways, and shooting is scheduled to begin within a couple of weeks on the show's 26th season at the house.
MTV has been trying to keep the location under wraps, so when 10News reporter John Carroll showed up at the Bird Rock home and starting asking questions, he wasn't exactly welcomed with open arms. Eventually a member of the crew emerged and told Carroll they would have nothing to say.
Neighbors, however, had plenty to say to 10News on the subject.
"This 'Real World' seems like a lot of extra partying, a lot of glorifying substance abuse and partying and that's all going to be right here in this quiet neighborhood," said resident John Bannon.
Bannon, said with all the extra traffic the show is expected to bring he is concerned for the safety of his two young children.
Following complaints of a lack of communication from the producers, the company shooting the show, RW Productions, sent out a form letter to the neighborhood. It claims most of the production will happen inside the house with minimal disruption to the neighborhood.
The 6,800-square-foot house has a pool, and Sky10 footage showed a rooftop tennis court had been covered with a life-sized chess set. It's estimated to be worth $3.5 million.
The last time "The Real World" was shot in San Diego was in 2003, when the series was filmed at a restaurant that had been converted into a house in Point Loma.
During production, several problems were documented.
A 22-year-old woman claimed she was raped in the cast house in November of that year. San Diego police investigated, but no charges were filed.
Additionally, two cast members were arrested after being involved in alcohol-fueled fights.
Neighbors in Bird Rock are hoping scenes like that won't be repeated in their peaceful neighborhood.
10News contacted the San Diego Film Commission for comment, but no calls were returned.
