Will People Watch a TV Show About People Watching TV? Bravo Is Betting They Will B&C
Reality television appears to have finally come full circle. A TV show about people watching TV has received an order from Bravo Media and will debut next month, B&C reports.
The new half-hour unscripted series, “The People's Couch,” will premiere Oct. 6.
“Based on the U.K. show ‘Gogglebox,’ the three-episode limited series will feature the same households watching and commenting on popular TV shows from the last week in their homes,” the story reports.
Said Bravo VP of Development Lara Spotts: "'The People's Couch' is a funny, unfiltered comment on America's current TV viewing habits. Continuing Bravo's tradition of serving up pop culture in fresh, new ways, this series taps into everyone's desire to know what others think about the shows they are watching."
Studio Lambert and All3Media America are producing the series, with Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman, Tania Alexander and Aliyah Silverstein exec-producing.
