He’s Producing a Reality Show About a Reality TV School!

Roy BankGet this…

So there’s a “New York Reality TV School” founded by Robert Galinsky to help people actually get ONTO their favorite reality shows.

And President of Merv Griffin Television Roy Bank (C’94) is in final talks to create a reality show out of this.


“The series will begin by following him [Galinsky] as he works to expand the school from the fly-by-night operation it now is into an internationally-franchised operation. “We are going to move from a mom and pop shop to a full-blown business,” he says.

Like many reality series, it will have an elimination-style format, although Galinsky says he would like to have multiple winners to encourage the formation of alliances. The prizes, he says, will include “both first-look auditions on current shows and a full pilot production produced by Merv Griffin.”

And this cracks me up…Galinksy is quoted as calling the show “an uber-meta-circular-clusterfuck of camera seducing camera seducing cast seducing viewer.”

I will watch this for sure!

"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference."
