Define: TV-Reality

Since 2000 there has been a drastic change.

Welcome to 21st Century Hollywood – A Webinar Series presented by Kevin E. West. Do you really want to be on a Reality show? Really? You sure? We ask the question because if you answered “Yes” then you want to be SURE you watch this Webinar. We like to remind folks who think Survivor was the first reality show (by definition) please know it was really the show, Cops. Reality TV is really just sensationalized Documentary form TV. It is “not suppose to be” scripted (although a lot more of it is than you’d like to believe) and it is the audience watching “real life.” To that end Reality television has morphed 3-fold since 2000 and now we include information / magazine type shows in Reality as well as lifestyle and culture shows like Anthony Bourdain on CNN. Be sure you’re clear on the fact that Duck Dynasty isn’t Survivor, and American Idol or The Voice, isn’t Big Brother. It is a crazy collection of stuff in which there are now 3 distinct forms of Reality television and NONE of them typically forward an actor’s career.
