Definitely not a music video

After months of negotiations, the Hoover school board Friday finally gave an MTV production company the green light to film a documentary about the Hoover High School football team this fall. The 4-1 vote came after board members received a few more assurances that the school won't be portrayed negatively and a guarantee that the system would receive more money than the original contract offered. If the ratings are high enough, the company could film a total of three seasons.

The board's lone dissenter thought it wasn't such a good idea to give MTV editorial control over a series that could define how the nation views Hoover, but no one ever listens to lone dissenters.
