Why is there so many reality tv shows? I’m not complaining. Much. Because there are a couple I actually like.

  • Dancing with the Stars
  • Project Runway
  • Let’s Talk About Pep
  • Forensic Files
  • Cake Boss
  • Top Chef
  • Operation Repo

Okay. So maybe I like more than a couple.

Some are train wrecks. I won’t name them but if you’ve watched them you know what they are. And of course it got me thinking about people, relationships which led me of course to characters. As writers, we try to make our characters dynamic, relatable, realistic, human, flawed. And reality tv makes for some great character studies.
