"Utopia” will cast a variety of people possessing problem-solving skills needed to start a new society.

Veterinarians with a thirst for excitement, the unknown and no privacy whatsoever may find what they're looking for in a new reality TV show from Fox.

"Utopia," which is scheduled to debut in September, will take 15 people of different skill sets, place them in a remote location with few amenities, allow them to create their own civilization, and document how they survive and interact. Producers want a veterinarian to take part because animals likely will be living alongside the humans.

Any veterinarian looking to schedule a two-week vacation so she can appear on the show is out of luck. The taping is expected to last one year.

Who qualifies? Any U.S. citizen or legal resident at least 21 years old.

"We are not necessarily looking for someone who is tall, dark and handsome," said Gretchen Miller, who works for The Conlin Co., a Los Angeles casting agency. "Their passion in what they do is what's important."

"Utopia" is based on a popular Dutch show currently in production.

"There are no laws, there are no regulations," executive producer John de Mol said in a promotional video for the show. "It is the opportunity for 15 people to create a better society than the one we live in right now."

Online applications, which require the submission of a video and a current photo, are being accepted at www.utopiatv.com.

Anyone not selected as the show's veterinarian may get a second chance. The rules call for one of the 15 participants to be thrown out and replaced each month.
