Reality Show follows the story of a struggling reality show producer by the name of Mickey Wagner who is played by Adam Rifkin. With Mickey being fed up with the way reality shows are made in today's market, he comes up with a risky plan to develop his own unique reality show. Mickey's idea was to put an average family on camera without their knowledge to enhance the reality of the show. Mickey wanted real life to show on the cameras, not the fake story lines and props. Mickey's idea gets a little tricky due to the fact that finding the right family would be more difficult then he imagined. Soon, Mickey realizes why other reality shows had props and other influences. After a while, Mickey's chosen family gets more boring by the day. Mickey eventually takes matters into his own hands and decides to introduce a little drama in the family's life. One thing leads to the next and before you know it, Mickey has put his finger prints into a very messy situation. Unfortunately the success of the show means the destruction of this seemingly innocent family. Mickey questions his morals and his original idea, but the financial burdens of life seem to make for a good excuse. With the cameras rolling without warning to the family, Mickey assumes that everything will go according to plan. Mickey rationalizes the invasion of this family's life with the idea that fame will heal all wounds. Mickey does not want to change course now, especially since he had to go through a lot of hard work just cross referencing data and records. Mickey was lucky to have found an American family with a unique last name that seemed to fit the show's purpose: the Warwicks. With that name alone, Mickey felt the story was going to write itself. Mickey quickly realizes that reality is not all it's cracked up to be.
