What is your favorite reality television show? Everyone seems to have an idea for a reality television show. What is yours? This workshop provides an overview of the world of reality or "unscripted" television. We will review the current reality/docu landscape by understanding the different types of formats from elimination/competition shows to docu-series. We will demonstrate the real process of show development from creation, the pitch and eventually production. What are the elements necessary to be able to pitch a show? From PowerPoint Presentations to sizzle reels (5 minute video presentations), we will cover what networks require to be able to get in the door. Topics like casting, production teams, and understanding the many networks out there and what they look for will be covered. It all starts very simply: THE IDEA.
The class will end with the participants being able to pitch their ideas to the group of experienced television professionals. Who knows? Perhaps one of your ideas could actually become a real show! A future follow-up workshop will concentrate on ideas that will actually be developed and made into a sizzle reel video presentation.
