One common question I get as a Producer is "Are Reality shows really real?"
That's like nailing down what the definition of is, IS.
In a word I have to say "yes". Yes, reality shows are real in the sense they are 'real people', not actors and the show is unscripted. That said, there are all types of 'real' Reality Shows.
What kinds of Reality shows are there?
- Unscripted Comedy
- Unscripted Drama
- Observational Documentary
- Talk Shows
- Competition Shows
- Social Experiments
- Celebrity behind the scenes
- Hoax Shows
- Makeover and Renovation Shows
- Hidden Camera
- Dating and Relationship Shows
- Paranormal and Ghost Shows
- and some we haven't thought of yet!
