James Franco's new internet reality show has been criticised by students at the University of Southern California.

The show, entitled Undergrads, depicts the extreme partying amongst students at the school. The film chronicles underage and binge drinking, arrests, and drug use on the Los Angeles campus.

Students from USC have come out to condemn the show, saying that it does not present an accurate portrayal of the campus community, and highlights only a certain culture at the school, reports the Los Angeles Times.

"I can't help but laugh and be disgusted at the same time," said junior cinematic arts major Travis Newhouse. "It's irresponsible."

There is currently a campaign amongst students to boycott the show until university officials shut it down.

The show is just one of the many projects Franco has been working on in the past year, along with several new films in production such as Oz: The Great and Powerful and Cherry.

James Franco will be starring next in The Stare alongside Winona Ryder.
