“How does it feel to be a national hero?” “I’m no hero I’m just doing what anybody would have done under those circumstances.” “Well most people would have ducked.” The world of reality TV is in a constant state of evolving to the next level to tantalize and shock viewers for ratings. The only problem is, audiences of the world constantly crave the new, they crave the unique, they crave the desperate.
“What happened on your show this week was disastrous. But from a legal standpoint neither the network nor the producers can be held liable.” “So theoretically if we had a show on the air where people committed suicide we wouldn’t be breaking the law.” With every new years TV season’s beginning comes a new slew of desperate attempts by networks to bait those into watching every unexpected twist and turn. In ‘This is Your Death’ Josh Duhamel hosts an unsettling reality television hit game show that has its contestants ending their lives for the public’s enjoyment for money left to their loved ones.
“What you’re about to see tonight is unlike anything you’ve seen on television before. This will probably shock you.” The satirical drama is directed by Giancarlo Esposito and written by Kenny Yakkel and Noah Pink.
“Not everybody on TV is rich and living the American dream.” “They’re people like us, they’re poor and desperate.” Famke Janssen stars as Duhamel’s boss, and Esposito pulls double duty, starring in the film alongside Sarah Wayne Callies and James Franco.
“One million dollars a death of the year on the season finale. Thank you for watching life is precious so make the most of it.” ‘This is Your Death’ arrives in theaters and is available on demand on September 15, 2017.
I’m not a reality TV fan so this it a bit out there for me. What do you think?
