There are "reality" shows where the cameras just follow around C-level celebrities. There's some showing the inner workings of hair salons, restaurants - and now a subset of that, a restaurant kitchen. There's one coming up about a newspaper, with The Daily News to be featured on a show to air on Bravo. And now there's one being planned about a goddamn department store. The Times is reporting that there will be a new reality show revealing the inner workings of Macy's:
Set for broadcast in September, “Unwrapping Macy’s” will offer a behind-the-scenes look at how the retailer operates its stores, selects merchandise, creates a catalog and runs events like the annual Thanksgiving Day parade, said Steven Weinstock, one of the producers behind the show.
The show, which is still being edited, will be on WE, the Women’s Entertainment network, whose viewership overlaps with Macy’s customers, executives at Macy’s and WE said. The first of eight 30-minute episodes will appear at 10 p.m. on Sept. 30.
Mr. Weinstock said life at Macy’s was “inherently dramatic,” because of creative conflicts between staff members and the deadline pressure of each passing fashion season.
Remember when TV drama actually meant Martin Sheen as the president, or George Clooney as a doctor? Now it's some salesgirl from Queens chewing gum and gossiping about that bitch in Accessories.
I've got to get in on this reality show gravy train. These people are making money by having cameras follow some schlubs around doing their jobs or even just living their lives. There's money to be made here, folks, and I demand some of it
