Nev Schulman Inks Book Deal with Grand Central Publishing

catfishNev Schulman, best known as the host of Catfish: The TV Show, has landed a deal with Grand Central Publishing. A release date has been scheduled for Fall 2014.

This book, entitled In Real Life, marks Schulman’s debut as an author. With this project, Schulman (pictured, via) intends to share stories and life lessons he has picked up from working on Catfish.

Here’s more from Deadline: “Schulman will write about his continuing exploration of relationships in the digital age, which started with the indie documentary Catfish. It broadened to the MTV spinoff show in which he helps one partner in a digital relationship meet the other, a collision that usually leads to the discovery the other person isn’t who they said they are, and sometimes not even the gender they claimed to be.” (via The Huffington Post)
