Trendwatch: Keeping it Real

It’s been an unscripted buzzword for years but whereas in the past the term “authenticity” was used to describe docusoap characters and worlds, now the word is used to denote experiences and production techniques. In a move away from “over-produced” reality, GoPro-outfitted casts are filming themselves in the field, with adventure and excitement being the key elements for various U.S. cable nets. Here, network executives and producers behind the trend discuss what it takes to “keep it real” but also keep it entertaining.
