NYT: Growing Rowdier, TV Reality Shows Are Attracting Suits

January 7th, 2003  |  Published in Uncategorized

Looks like tv show producers are learning people don’t like it when you humiliate them in public:

“Lawsuits against the unscripted entertainment shows known as reality television used to be filed by people who got hurt imitating stunts on shows like ‘Jackass’ or believed that the rules on shows like ‘Survivor’ were applied unfairly. “Now, media lawyers and insurance executives say a new sort of lawsuit, involving claims of serious physical and emotional injury to the participants themselves, is on the rise.”

Good.
