(Newser) – The newest entry in the world of reality shows probably isn't what you expected: Glenn Beck is teaming with actor and director Vince Vaughn to create a competition for documentary filmmakers, reports Politico. The Pursuit of Truth will air on Beck's TheBlaze TV sometime next year, with 20 filmmakers competing against each other. Also involved is producer Peter Billingsley, better known to the world as the kid in A Christmas Story.

"What the hell is Vince Vaughn doing with a crazy man?" Beck said on his radio show today. "I know, that's what my friends say. Glenn, what are you doing with the crazy man Vince Vaughn? Yes. It's great, isn't it?" (The Wrap notes that Vaughn is "one of Hollywood's highest profile conservatives.") Beck added a bit on what to expect: "I’d love to see something on the Federal Reserve, the game that’s being played there. I would love to see something on why capitalism is actually a good thing, why it’s not a bad thing.”
