The Inland Empire (I.E.), colloquially known as the IE, is a metropolitan area centered around the cities of Riverside and San Bernardino in Southern California.
This region east of Los Angeles is also the site of Spencer Pratt's new reality show, Inland Empire 909, which you will likely never see on any television station.
Obsessed with Jersey Shore since its premiere, which also coincided with his own decline in relevance, Spencer is desperately trying to cash in on the concept.

Now an unemployed filmmaker, Spencer Pratt gushed to Radar about his new reality show, which he'll be "shopping to the networks in the coming weeks.”
“These girls will eat the cast of Jersey Shore alive,” said the former Hills villain. “They will keep it real and not say they are only that way for a show.”
“To be honest, I'm scared of the entire cast. Lauren from 909 is younger and more wild then J-Woww and they fight for real every single night.”The Inland Empire 909 trailer begins on a black screen, then states the absurd number of viewers (4.8 million) that watched the Jersey Shore finale.
909 then promises a “younger and sexier” cast.
“They are the next level of reality TV. Where Jersey Shore and the East Coast has Snooki, the West Coast has T-BONE aka Tayrn, tearing it UP!" Mr. Heidi Montag boasts. ”The 909 is untapped, reality TV gold audiences have been waiting for.”
The 909 trailer shows troubled cast members barbequing and discussing sex, fights, partying and more. One guy reveals his stomach. Real original.
At least his quote-unquote feature film, Tower 69: Malibu Beach Patrol Featuring 3-D Boobs, was his own idea. A hilariously bad one, but his own.
