Twitter and production companies Reveille and Brillstein Entertainment are joining to come out with a TV show that is about “putting ordinary people on the trail of celebrities in a revolutionary competitive format.” Variety reports the novelist Amy Ephron — yes, she’s Nora Ephron’s sister — came up with the idea.
