Ice Cube to help criminals reform with new reality series

ice cubeIce Cube is producing a new reality series pilot for A&E called Good in the Hood. The plan is for each episode to be introduced by Ice Cube and then focus on a former gang member, drug dealer or robber as they try to help somebody in a similar situation turn their life around.

I've expressed my distaste for reality programming in the past, but this is a good example of how many sub-genres existed within the reality show genre, and not all of them are that bad. I really like the idea of people who once took from society do what they can to give something back, and to understand that it is possible to change. It's a great idea, and if done well, I think A&E may have another hit on its hands.

A reality show with an uplifting purpose that may even do some good might be the kind of reality show I'd want to watch. One thing's for sure, it sure beats the backstabbing, ass-showing, money-grubbing style of so many on the air now. A "feel good" show is always a nice change, thanks for the heads-up.
