This panel dives deep into the world of reality TV or, in entertainment industry terms, "unscripted" television. Four expert panelists, three of whom are UA Alumni, will share their personal experiences working in reality TV as a production company exec, an agent, a producer, and a competitor. Some of the questions we’ll ask them are: How do I get my reality TV show idea in front of an industry decision-maker? What types of shows are producers looking for? What’s it like to participate or compete on a show? And, of course, is it really reality? Hear the real story from professionals who are behind the scenes and from someone who took the leap to compete.... and won.

PLUS…if you have a Reality TV show idea, we’re offering an opportunity for a selected few to pitch their show ideas to industry professionals. Winners will be judged on originality, creativity, and whether the project is doable, with extra points going to shows that lend themselves to filming in Southern Arizona. Click Contest to find out more and to apply. The winners will be announced at the panel. Enter soon. The deadline is end of day November 27.
