In the 1970s PBS aired a show called “An American Family.” This show followed the lives of the Loud family as they dealt with their family falling apart. This was our first reality TV show. There are currently hundreds of reality TV shows on prime-time and cable today. Contestants on these shows can win large sums of money, a marriage proposal from the potential love of their life and gobs of attention through national television exposure. Getting in touch with a reality TV show producer is the first step in being considered as a contestant for one of these popular TV shows.
