Reality Unreeled: The Really Real Unreal Reality of Real Reality TV

Is reality television real? Is this the real life or is it just fantasy? Paper Tiger explores the social impact of stereotypes in this explosive and exploitative genre. The show features an interview with media critic, journalist and founder of Women in Media and News, Jennifer L. Pozner. Pozner explains the social, economic and cultural reality of reality TV. An interview with Robert Galinsky, founder of the New York Reality TV School, reveals how actors get trained how to act real and we try to make sense of all of those "Addicted to Beauty" posters through chats with random subway passengers. The show will premiere on July 28, 2010 as part of our series Double Trouble: Racism and Sexism in the Media on TimeWarner Ch34 and RCN Ch82 (Manhattan Neighborhood Network MNN) and at 3pm and 11pm on TimeWarner Ch34 and Cablevision Ch67 (Brooklyn Community Access Television BCAT)
