About the Book:

Get real. Get in. Maybe even get rich..

When you watch American Idol, Dancing With the Stars, or Survivor, you are stoking the flames of the world's hottest and most commercially successful television genre – Reality TV. And behind every Reality show is a production team filled with creative professionals building entertainment out of reality. You can join that team!

Subtitled An Insider's Guide to TV's Hottest Market, this book demystifies the world of writing and producing Reality television in a fun, accessible way.  Reality TV by Troy DeVolld is a staple in university media programs and libraries as far away as Italy and South Africa, but it is as entertaining to Reality fans as it is informative to students and established creative types looking to cross into one of the most explosive genres in television.
