Reality TV: An Insider's Guide to TV's Hottest Market is a no-nonsense read that doesn't sugarcoat the realities of the process or the ethical gut-checks that writers and producers often experience in trying to deliver an engaging end product. This newly updated 2nd edition includes new exercises, information about the Global Reality TV Market, and the latest information about Reality TV.
Troy DeVolld's bestselling Reality TV: An Insider's Guide to Television's Hottest Market changed the game in 2011 as the first and only MWP title to focus exclusively on reality television's storytelling process. Troy's dozens of credits include stints on The Osbournes, The Surreal Life, Dancing With the Stars, Basketball Wives, Hollywood Game Night, and more. DeVolld, in addition to keeping a busy lecture schedule, has appeared on Today, Showbiz Tonight, and AXS Live, and been quoted in the pages of Time, Newsweek, Emmy, Written By, and countless other publications. He lives in Los Angeles, California with his cat, Zoe, who thinks he works too much.

Interested in Reality TV? Read This Book19 September 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
Troy DeVolld lives and breathes reality TV, and his deep knowledge of and passion for the genre shine through in this exceptionally valuable book. As an expert reality TV producer himself, Troy covers every aspect of the conception and execution of reality shows clearly, entertainingly, and with great insight. I am myself a longtime toiler in the craft (I've edited unscripted television shows for the last 12+ years), and Troy's book had plenty to teach me. For instance, working exclusively in post-production as I do, I spend literally zero time in the field, and this book gave me a useful perspective on the concerns and considerations the field producers and crew face daily, in order to capture the footage we editors need. If you have any interest at all in reality television -- as a fan, as an academic, or as a current or wanna-be practicioner of the craft (at any level and in any job description), this book is a must-have.

Troy DeVolld has countless producer credits in Reality TV because he knows how it all works...23 May 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
The author has countless Reality TV producer credits because he's honed his craft and he's great to work with - so says all of our mutual friends in the industry. DeVolld is one of the most knowledgable and respected professionals in the Reality TV world. In a mercilessly competitive business it's wise to get as much trustworthy insight as possible. Buy this book and actually read it. Then read it again. Make great shows and then share whatever new insights you gather along the way. Good karma to you.

The "Real" behind reality.18 October 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
This book is fantastic. If you are interested in how the reality sausage is made and serious about jumping into this rewarding and creative field then this is the book for you. Troy is knowledgeable, experienced, funny, insightful, and truthful. This book could easily be used to teach an intro to Reality TV class as well as benefit those of us who have been in the biz for a while and are looking to articulate what it is we do.
