Wanted: PR Firm for New Reality TV Show
Twice in the last few months I’ve been contacted by TV producers asking if our firm was interested in playing a role in what the person on the other end of the phone purported to be the next biggest reality TV series: The internal workings of a PR firm.
Frankly, I’ve always thought what goes on inside our firm on a daily basis would make good fodder for everything from a sit-com to a suspense thriller. And, with work that ranges from helping one client manage media coverage about dead bodies to assisting another in recovering from front page news about an employee being caught running down the street in “nothing but a thong,” I’m sure we could come up with plenty of “action” on any given day.
Tempting as it is, I’ve declined to participate, but have to wonder who else these people are calling and who might take them up on their offer.
Have you heard about these new shows? If you’re working at a public relations firm, have you been contacted? And how about a name for this show? “Flackville’s Believe It or Not?” What can you come up with?
