REALITY TV: Breaking Into TV's Most Unusual Market

Join author Troy DeVolld at The Writers Store for this FREE EVENT on July 23,2016 from 2pm-5pm

Sporting credits on more than two dozen reality shows like Basketball Wives, Dancing With the Stars, Flipping Out and Hollywood Game Night, author Troy DeVolld has served his time in the reality television trenches, and he's ready to show you how to take on the business.

With the release of the second edition of his book, REALITY TV: An Insider's Guide to TV's Hottest Market this summer, he once again shares not only his passion for the genre, but tips and tricks on breaking into the often counterintuitive world of reality television, understanding reality story structure and how shows are developed and produced.

DeVolld, who has lectured and conducted workshops on reality's story process in places as far flung as London and Tel Aviv, is among the most in-demand speakers on the subject of reality television, appearing on Today, Showbiz Tonight and in the pages of Time, Newsweek and Entertainment Weekly. This rare appearance at the Writers Store is the perfect opportunity to learn about reality from one of the genre's leading working professionals... don't miss it!

A reception with drinks and snacks follows the lecture and Q&A portion of this event.
