Title: The “Reality” of Reality TV Shows

Thesis Statement: Reality TV has become a staple of American households but how much of this reality is the actual truth and not scripted/staged?

-Many reality TV shows have been called out for creating fake scenarios or being scripted in order to keep a storyline going with the show. Fights or other types of conflicts also can be staged by producers or the producers look for a way to create a conflict. I would do research to see where reality tv started to take off in popularity and compare how it has changed over the years.

-I also would do research on shows that have been accused of being staged and try to figure out why that is an accusation.

-The actual video would try to comply different clips together from popular reality shows included with the voiceover and different text explaining the content.
