Woman in reality show scam sent to prison
Way back in September of 2005 I mentioned a non-existent reality series created by a Hollywood producer in order to scam investors out of millions of dollars. The alleged reality series, DHS: The Series, was to focus on the Department of Homeland Security. No such series ever existed, and Joseph Medawar, the producer behind the scam, was sentenced last month to one year in prison.
Alison Ann Heruth, who lied in interviews saying she would both act in and co-produce the series, was given five years probation. She was recently sentenced to ten days in jail for violating the terms of her probation, which included paying $250 in retribution once a month.
Any takers on how long until this whole fiasco gets turned into a made-for-TV movie?
