The union deals with reality (TV)

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 22nd 2005 8:09AM

The Writers Guild of America, the union which represents over 12,000 people working in the entertainment industry, wants to allow writers, editors, and producers currently working on reality television productions into the union. However, networks and studios are refusing. This gets into a lot of jargon and rhetoric that neither you or I really care much about, but the bottom line is that reality television is produced and "written" in a much different way than a scripted series, and the WGA has to figure out how to make such an inclusion work without a complete overhaul.

This is the best news I've EVER heard!!! Because now, Reality TV will cost a bit more to make, so maybe we'll see less and less of it on TV.
