Abstract

This paper explores how to create compelling reality television ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ (KUWTK) style. As authors we have both worked on reality formats and now as academics, we are able to deconstruct the format of these types of shows from an insider’s point of view. We go behind the scenes to reveal the mechanics of the format, explain the casting dynamics, as well as the key ingredients that go into a successful reality series, from a programme maker’s point of view.
