Reality TV shows don't need writers, do they? It's a common misconception. While it's true that reality television is generally considered to be "unscripted" - whether it's a talk show, panel show, competition / game show, or the ever-popular documentary-style and soap opera-style format, also known as 'docusoap' - every reality series comes to fruition with a well-crafted pitch to sell the overall idea or concept and introduce its cast of "characters" - the real-life stars who bring the show to life.
As an experienced TV writer and screenwriter-for-hire, I've had the pleasure of developing and writing reality TV treatments for the Executive Producers of The Real Housewives of Orange County, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Real Housewives of Miami, The Real Housewives of New York City and The Real Housewives of D.C., as well as Project Runway, Top Chef, Married to Medicine, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, The Millionaire Matchmaker, Tabatha's Salon Makeover, Watch What Happens: Live and many more hit reality shows!
My experience doesn't stop there: I've co-written with the Producer of Discovery Channel's docu-soap Alaskan Bush People and the CBS adventure-reality series The Amazing Race. I've also worked on projects with other industry pros who are credited on such high-profile and successful reality shows as Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the UFC competition show The Ultimate Fighter and MTV's Real World - the longest running American reality show in history.
So, I have a keen insight into how this industry works, what producers need to sell a show, and what networks expect to see before green-lighting a new series. Because every one of these successful reality TV shows was launched with a perfect pitch...
Therefore, if you have a concept for a new reality show, I can help you impress decision-makers. I've written pitches for all kinds of reality TV programming - from Survivor-style adventure game shows to Apprentice-style business competition shows, and even The View-style talk shows / panel shows, featuring some of the biggest names in reality TV - including a four-time Emmy-nominated "outstanding talk show host"!
And you too can bring onboard a skilled TV treatment writer for your reality show project. Whether it's an idea that needs creative development or you need help capturing 'on paper' the story / biography of a real-life person who could be the next big reality TV star; we can work together on a professional pitch to take your reality show to the next level.
For a fee of $750, I will prepare the pitch with you, to develop your ideas, story or concept into a sellable document that's polished and industry-ready. Email me now to get started!
