Create A Reality TV Show
So you’ve got an idea for a Reality TV Show? Broadcasters and Production Companies are always looking for new ideas and fresh takes on old ideas, so putting some work into your idea and trying to sell it isn’t as silly as seem people may think.
But there are a few steps to take in order to give you the best shot at success.
1. Find out if your show has already been made. There are a lot of shows out there and I’ve heard from more than one Development Executive that they regularly get pitched shows that already exist, simply because the person doing the pitching didn’t take the time to do their research.
2. Watch TV. If you want to Create a Reality Show out of your idea you need to know what you want the end product to look like. Saying “I want it to look completely different from anything out there” isn’t the best sales tool, and even if you DO want that, you need to watch TV to see how it compares to other shows.
3. There are different genres of Reality TV Shows. Ie: Occu-Soap, Docu-Soap, Competition, DIY, and the list goes on and on. Know what genre of show your show falls under. And know what shows yours is similar to, and know what makes it different when you compare it to shows already...
Don’t make time-consuming and amateur mistakes. This eBook will make all the difference. I say it is the best you’ll find.

Your chapter on building pitches is one of the best explanations of the topic I've seen/heard. I've been to a lot of festivals and your Chapter 7 is way better!

There's a good voice in the content. I feel like I'm listening to someone, so reading it is even easier. And I like the sarcasm :-)

“What do I need to do?” And
“What order do I need to do it in?”
When left unanswered these two common questions can cost you time, money, and the chance to get your show in front of the decision makers.
The Members Area is specifically designed to teach you what to do and when to do it.
Our step-by-step lessons teach you to properly develop your idea by examining and developing your show’s Characters, the Settings they’re in, and the Stories we can expect to see.
It teaches you how to build relationships with the people who decide what airs on TV. It shows how to build promotional material and pitches that grab their attention and communicate the tone and vision of your show. It prepares you for the questions that come after the pitch and teaches how to keep the Exec’s attention even after the meeting is over.
The Members Area will give you the tools and knowledge to professionally pitch your show to Development Executives and will save you time and money along the way.
