Good News About Reality TV? Hope So!
Here’s a really interesting insight into what’s happening in Reality TV, reported by Cynopsis Media:
Reality TV is starting to take itself more seriously, according to a new study from branding and insights company TruthCo. “In response to concerns that Reality TV has been calcifying, we’re seeing the rise of a prestige offering within the genre,” said Rajiv Menon, cultural analyst. “We can expect to see more socially-driven and investigative Reality programming, as well as a greater level of emotional depth and complexity from characters.” Related finding: investigating social issues is increasingly a driver of viewer choice.
Let’s hope this trend grows – because “prestige offerings” is what Maximum Sunshine Productions is all about!
