MTV will air a special documentary November 5 on the ongoing “Occupy Wall Street” protest in New York City’s Zuccotti Park.

As part of the long-running documentary series True Life, MTV embedded with protesters at Zuccotti Park to “get a real sense of how the Occupy movement is taking shape.”

The special episode, “True Life: I’m Occupying Wall Street,” will follow three protesters — Bryan, Kait and Caitlin — who become “swept up in the political movement that has quickly grown into a global phenomenon,” according to MTV’s website.

As corporations enjoy near record profits and Americans face staggering unemployment, protesters have pledged to occupy Wall Street in lower Manhattan until something is done about the consolidation of economic and political power.

The protesters have been camped out since September 17.
