Everybody, it seems, wants their own reality TV show like American Idol, The Apprentice or Project Runway.
But how do you break into the lucrative world of reality TV, whether you’ve got an idea for a multi-million-dollar series or a low-budget niche show on cable?
You’ll learn whether reality shows are really reality, how much planning and production goes into unscripted storytelling and how you can get in on the action.
You’ll look at various types of reality shows and what makes them tick, from docu-dramas and docu-soaps (Dog the Bounty Hunter, Laguna Beach) to game shows and elimination-style competitions (Hell’s Kitchen, Survivor) to personality-driven and “aspirational” series (Tasty Travels, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition).
Then you’ll learn how to conceive, develop, and sell your idea.
