Okay, so that’s not a very good idea for a reality TV series, but I’m sure there are plenty of great show ideas out there.
Did you ever read a book that made you think, “They could make a reality TV show out of this.”?
One that comes to mind for me is The Yosemite by John Muir – one of my all-time favorite reads. It’s a series of essays about Muir’s amazing relationship with what is now Yosemite National Park. To attempt to recreate the adventurous spirit, ecological sensitivity, and pioneer’s grit conveyed by Muir’s prose
would be a challenge for any TV production.
I mention it because a new website that launched today wants everyone to send in their unscripted TV show ideas. The site was founded by the guy who created FEAR FACTOR, BIG BROTHER and DEAL OR NO DEAL, so he knows a little bit about making hit TV shows. They promise to pay for any good ideas that they actually develop into a show.
