What to Watch on Wednesday: A new true-crime series from ABC

Dallas (9pm, TNT) - John Ross resorts to blackmail to gain leverage on a family member, but J.R. deals with the development in his own inimitable style. Meanwhile, Christopher tries to choose between two women.

Hollywood Exes (9pm, VH1) - The ex-wives of Eddie Murphy, Jose Canseco, Will Smith, Prince and R. Kelly debut their own "real housewives" type series.

Royal Pains (9pm, USA) - Evan meets a bright scientist with a  mysterious history and Hank tends to a young pair who are planning an unusual fundraiser. Also, Eddie returns to the Hamptons to repair the rift between his sons.

Final Witness (10pm, ABC) - A new true-crime series in which real murder cases are reenacted and told from the victim's point of view. The first story spotlights the 2008 slayings of three members of the Caffey family of East Texas, and is told from the "imagined vantage point" of the slain mother. The production value is higher than most true-crime shows, but it's a bit eerie to hear a murder narrated by the "voice" of one of the victims. The story is helped along by comments from survivors, witnesses, detectives and attorneys. If you experience deja-vu while watching, it's because this first episode -- "The Kids Aren't Alright" -- originally aired as a backdoor pilot in 2010.

School Spirits (10pm, Syfy) - A former student's spooky experiences in a dorm room at the State University of New York are recalled.

The Real World: St. Thomas (10pm, MTV) - Season 27 (I'm old!) features seven strangers on the island of St. Thomas. It doesn't take long for one roommate to feel left out as he falls for a girl who is already falling for someone else. MTV had a casting call in Raleigh for this show, but no locals are in the cast.

Around the World in 80 Plates (10pm, Bravo) - The chefs face Alvin "The Demon Chef" Leung, known for his innovative culinary creations.

MTV holding 'Real World' auditions in Raleigh

MTV will hold an open casting call in Raleigh next week for the 27th season of "The Real World."

Casting directors from Bunim/Murray Productions, the creators of the show, will be at the Downtown Sports Bar on Glenwood South on Saturday, October 22, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

According to their press release, executive producers are looking for "characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds."

The show is typically cast with people from diverse backgrounds, but producers stress that personality is key. Also, obviously, a willingness to share your life with millions of people on television.

If you plan to audition, you need to bring along a recent photograph of yourself (which will not be returned) and a photo ID. You must be 20 years or older. There's no upper age limit, but the release says you should look between the ages of 20 and 24.

For more information check out the Bunim/Murray website.

Downtown Sports Bar is located at 410 Glenwood Ave in Raleigh.
