Reality TV has long been prized by networks and streamers because it's generally cheaper to produce than scripted entertainment. "The sheer volume of footage that has to be watched and culled through to even find the story is daunting," says unscripted TV editor and editors guild board member Mary DeChambres. While streamers and digital platforms have boosted unscripted production, lower-budget shows predominate on these platforms. Overall, many reality TV employees say digital shorter form shows often offer the lowest budgets, and wider audiences, with a few exceptions.
While most shows are taking a break during the COVID-19 shutdown, BTV is highlighting the pandemic experience across all their shows. Executive producers include Brandon Stewart, who also serves as showrunner, and Joel Parent with Justice Bowens and Andrew Young serving as producers. BTV will distribute the series worldwide.
