Post Screening q&a with co-directors


In the Spring of 2005, two aspiring TV writer-producers were hired by the publicity-obsessed promoter behind the Paris Hilton sex tape to create a brutal all-or-nothing reality show "where survival is just the beginning."

From high-concept pitch through train-wreck production, the entire behind-the-scenes process was documented to the end, when a contestant was critically injured, forcing the show to shut down. Featuring exclusive on-set access and interviews with industry insiders and reality-TV veterans, this film goes through the looking glass of television to discover the human cost of popular entertainment.

“Packed with sleazy promotors, fame-craving contestants and mocking sadists. A certain train wreck fascination.” Variety

“Hilariously exposes the emptiness of this prime-time genre.” Premiere

Deliciously bizarre.” New York Post
