But don’t worry, it’s going to be nothing but class.
“It won’t be the Jersey Shore. It’s more of an episodic documentary. We’re trying to invent something you haven’t seen before that follows a bunch of people in this crazy little subculture.”
What subculture is she talking about, you may ask. And the answer is “ping-pong.” Because apparently there’s a ping-pong subculture, and Susan Sarandon is really into it. Who knew?
Susan is an investor in a ping-pong nightclub, SPiN, and she calls herself the “Johnny Appleseed of ping-pong.” She wants to showcase the growth of the club and the ping-pong players that frequent it, a few of which she believes will make it to the Olympics.
As for when to be expecting this show, Susan doesn’t know that. She’s unsure what network the show should be on because she wants the show to be “quite different than anything else that anybody’s seen before.”
I had no idea ping-pong was this big of a deal. When I first heard the story, I thought it made sense, but then I realized I was thinking of beer pong, not ping-pong, so I went right back to square one. And believe me, I love me some Susan Sarandon, but I don’t see me ever watching a show about a ping-pong nightclub. What about you guys?
