MTV Sets Debuts for Workplace Reality Shows 'Big Tips Texas' & 'Scrubbing In'

MTV's "Big Tips Texas"

The new series focusing on bartenders and nurses, respectively, will debut in October

Appropriately, MTV waited until after Labor Day to announce the premiere dates for two new workplace reality series.

“Big Tips Texas,” which follows a group of friends working at a Dallas bar, premieres with back-to-back episodes starting Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 10/9c. And “Scrubbing in,” which follows the travails of nine nurses relocated to an Orange County, Calif. hospital, premieres Thursday, Oct. 24 at 10/9c.

MTV is beefing up both its unscripted and scripted slates. In August, it announced the pickup of four new reality series: “Untitled Virgins Project,” “MTV's House of Food,” “SNACKDOWN” and “The Ex and the Why.”

See below for MTV's descriptions for “Big Tips Texas” and “Scrubbing In”:

“Big Tips Texas” documents the lives of a group of fun-loving girlfriends serving up southern hospitality at a popular Texas watering hole while hoping to make their dreams a reality. The eclectic group of women includes four veterans and six new girls. Sabrina, a gifted student working to save money to go back to college and eventually Harvard Law School; Amber the girl who knows her way around the bar but comes at odds with the other staff; Typhani, the boss; and Claire, the bar's top bartender, are amongst those who have earned their stripes. The newbies include Kristyn, an ambitious waitress who has dreams of climbing the establishment's corporate ladder and starting her own clothing line; Morgan, a rodeo princess; Mimi, one of the new girls who ruffles a few feathers; Jillian, the Chicago transplant; Macy, the biggest little Texan of them all; and Mercedez, known as the sassy southern server.

“Big Tips Texas” is Executive Produced by Ross Breitenbach for Breitenbach Creative + Media. Concept by Ross Breitenbach, Andy Meyer and Scot Thor. The series is Executive Produced by Shannon Fitzgerald and Tiffany Lea Williams for MTV. Tamar Zohar and Brittany Lutz are the Executives in Charge of Production for the series.

“Scrubbing In,” follows a group of travel nurses assigned to work at an Orange County, CA hospital for 12 weeks. Relocating from across the country, these nurses have left their hometowns and lives behind for short-term contracts at an understaffed hospital, with the added benefit of exploring a new city. For Tyrice, Chris, Fernando and Adrian, this isn't their first tour and they're considered experts of the program. For first-timers Chelsey, Michelle, Crystal, Nikki and Heather, this is a new journey they're embarking on together, looking for a change from their nursing jobs in Pittsburgh, PA.

“Scrubbing In” is Executive Produced by Mark Cronin and Joel Rodgers from Never Nominated. The series is Executive Produced by Shannon Fitzgerald and David Osper for MTV. Janay Dutton and Nick Predescu are the Executives in Charge of Production for the series.

    I think it's great that these girls actually have career goals. However I don't agree with the show. Let's be honest, although they are all working to do something greater with their lives, I have no doubt in my mind MTV will edit this show to highlight their less- than-appealing behavior. I know it's great to have fun and I'm not saying I'm better than these girls, because that's not my argument. I just don't think it's right to highlight their crazy, inappropriate behavior. I just wish their was more relevant content for younger viewers. While I can elect not to watch the show and just ignore it, I would much rather speak up about the lack of quality entertainment television.

    I know many people won't agree with me and that's ok. But, if you'd like to try and make a change, you can sign my petition.

    These women are the most degrading women I have ever seen. It's the typical high school clique that pics on the one person which is Chris. They are bitches and nasty they back stab and have no class.
