NEW MINI-SERIES GETS "REAL" ON SHOWTIME

"REALITY SHOW" Premieres November 1st on Showtime

Showtime Network acquires and sets air date for Sony International Television series, REALITY SHOW. An 8-episode, darkly satirical, miniseries, Reality Show begins November 1 at 11:30 p.m. EST and PCT. The remaining seven episodes will air each week at 11:30 p.m.

Reality Show follows Mickey Wagner (Adam Rifkin), a down on his luck reality show producer, as he crafts a sensational comeback. Fed up with how staged and phony reality shows are, Mickey's hatches a revolutionary idea to pick an average American family and put them under all-encompassing surveillance...without the family's knowledge.

The concept is to let real life unfold before the cameras. However, the family is numbingly boring. And the studio wants more sizzle. So Mickey starts to introduce drama into the unwitting family's lives. Temptation to cheat, drinking, work problems.... chaos ensues. Everything unravels in a big, big way with shocking consequences.

Adam Rifkin is the writer, director, executive producer and star of the show. Rifkin's eclectic career ranges from broad family comedies to cult classics to dark and gritty urban dramas. He's an A-list screenwriter with such movies to his credit as Mousehunt, and Underdog, and last year's Showtime series, LOOK, among many others credits.

In addition to Rifkin, the show stars Chicago actor and musician, Scott Anderson and Kelly Menighan Hensley, a two-time daytime Emmy nominee for her portrayal of Emily Stewart on As the World Turns. REALITY SHOW is a 30-minute, 8-episode series starting Thursday, November 1 at 11:00 p.m. eastern time on Showtime. Subsequent episodes will run every Thursday at 11:30 p.m.. It was written, produced, directed and stars Adam Rifkin. Executive Producers include Jared Hoffman, Chris Pollack and Michael Petok,
