Watch: Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Aren't Making A Reality Show in Exclusive 'Project Greenlight' Trailer

When you hear that “Project Greenlight” is a reality competition show, you might expect a “Project Runway”-style showdown series, but here’s the twist: The winner gets picked in the first episode. That’s because the show’s focus — as vaguely well-known men about town Matt Damon and Ben Affleck explain in the above trailer — is on the truth of what it’s like to actually make a film. 

The fourth season of “Project Greenlight” follows the production of a comedy produced by the Farrelly Brothers, with a promise to focus on the difficulties underlying the art of filmmaking. Because with no time and no money, the drama is very real. 

“Project Greenlight” Season 4 premieres September 13 at 10pm on HBO
