Law, Brothels and Politics

July 11, 2006 5:14 PM

Sundance Channel just announced two Nevada-based reality shows: “Sin City Law,” an eight-part series about a rivalry between a Las Vegas District Attorney and a public defender, and “Pleasure for Sale,” a six-part series chronicling the inner workings of a brothel.


Of course, since it's coming from the indie sophisticate Sundance Channel, the brothel series is made to sound as fun as a sociological term paper. According to the press release, the show "takes an unflinching look at the political, religious and economic realities of prostitution."


Meanwhile, a panel for Sundance's congressional reality series "The Hill" just left the stage. An aide for Congressman Robert Wexler (D-Fla.) was asked what it was like to be the subject of a reality series. His reply: "After the show I thought I came off as fat and angry. Before the show, I just thought I was angry."
