They wanna keep talking about it. So hey, just read about it instead. And now let's get into this podcast. Log onto bachelor party. I enjoy Littman. It's officially the off season for sports. It'd be free agency for me. That means I have a lot more time to watch other stuff. I'm pretty excited about it though. Obviously, miss the bachelor. I like to keep as much reality TV as possible to new shows from Sally Alzano sally-anne is the creator of the jersey shore. One of the most important television shows of my lifetime and as such, I've tried to keep up with all her work. She called in a couple of weeks ago to talk about two new shows that she has, including winter break, hunter mountain on MTV and hear me. Love me, see me which is on TLC. You're going to hear her. Dog barking in the back and that's okay because she called in from home. It was still great conversation, and I hope you enjoy it. So given a lesson. Sally and thanks so much for calling. How are you? Hey, Juliet, I'm good. Thank you. I'm so excited because you I big fan of all of your work and my God. I love that. Okay. So how did you first start working in reality TV? I came up through the talk show world, which in my mind was the original reality TV. Right? Was real people telling their stories about like unusual or things that were happening to them being honest about their live, right. Like the think that turned into long form. It's like even if you think about it, like what you said you like makeover shows and reunion shows, and then they're one onto shows like the locator that were all about that. I think a lot of long form reality shows today come from original either game, or you know, talk show format. It's even the bachelor like think about it as a long form of the dating game. I mean, after you deduct shows, how did you segue into the more. What we think of now is reality TV. 'cause you weren't. You weren't gonna early seasons of the bachelor, right? I did. And that basically came about where it's funny, no one would hire me in reality because I didn't have experience. And it's funny reality was so new that really, no one had experience, but having the talk show experience almost hurt me because they were like, wait, we don't. You don't do the type of show. It would take him people that did know type of show over that. And it's funny I met with this woman who is a dear friend of mine today, and I really like credit a lot of what I've learned from her. Her name is Lisa Levinson and she was doing the bachelor and one of her friends with my boss over ABC. And I was like, another talk show pilot. She like automated talking by literally like started crying. Can reality. What is going on right now. I'm literally having a mini meltdown at age twenty six that like I can't get it together. What was like, oh, do you don't leave the levins in? Have you heard they're doing his new show the bachelor like what? And I met Lisa and lethal. I not only hit it off in the meeting, but Lisa was a former Jerry Springer producer. Oh, so she made like I have the same trouble. He's like, talk show, producers, leave dose, owing turn. You stop it. Nothing. And you're only coming up with new ideas, new segments, everything. She's like, I love to give it a world. And so often the bachelor, I land and I was there until season. I guess it was season five of the bachelor and season three of the bachelorette so it was like eight seasons. Total plots, trenches wedding, right? And they're like the the bell of the ball whenever they're around because they're still together, whichever which I think people just find amazing. I love them so much. I can't even tell you working on that season with. Christa you truly watch two people fall in love and away. I don't know if I ever have again. Interesting. Did you watch the winter games because they were didn't? They? They held the torch the beginning. If they did like only. I was I was shooting. Okay. Still watch bachelor. I love it like I'm still a huge fan, but like the matrix is like the OJ. Oh yeah, he deserves everything. She did it for the right reason. Like she met the guy. She moved to Colorado, like a beautiful family. Like I, it's just so amazing. It is behind hard to believe it worked out. I always thought it was partially because it was so new. So there wasn't as much sort of context for the contestants to bring to the table and not even that she really wanted it. When you watch the show. Now what seems like the biggest difference from when you worked on it? No, it's not. I think every show of ball's a little bit too. I think like, you know, like I find with my show's casting, probably harder. 'cause you just try to find people that you wanna make sure it's in here, right? Yeah, actually asked about casting because I think a lot of your shows, the key to them is finding the right people, and that's why they're by. People. Just can't stop watching and definitely true for party down south even more recently floor Bama shore. It seems like there's a real art to casting and what is the most important attribute other than sincerity, I suppose in fighting a good reality TV star, digging digging and digging. I always think that you know, one interviews not enough in a tape, submission and Skype is not enough to go on unless you're of thinking it. Yeah, because they really, we really liked to dig deep. I like to see their houses. I like to see where they're from. Like I wanna make sure these people are who they say they are right, and I wanna make sure that they're going to tell me the same story that. They're telling me even if they're grandma and their teacher is sitting, doesn't matter who's I make them tell me the story with their grandma and sitting there. Is there a specific incident with someone from one of your shows where you did that houses in phila- dinner with them and their parents that you're the short cast that we were at everybody's house and met everyone. They party down south, you know, when you talk to them, then you start telling stories that they told you then you know, I always feel you talk about some of the stuff with their families around and if I'm like, oh, that time Jesus, then you know, like they are who they say they are that it's real than instead of like people just like putting on, you know. Sure. Could you gotta be careful that you're not just like you have to be careful also as producer that you not like, okay, great. Date said what I think I wanna hear. That's never it for me. It's like I don't. I never know what I'm looking for and I find it some network executive very frustrating because I don't know what I'm looking for. I know the type. No, this I'm not like a recluse. Sure. Like if I can say like, oh, hooking another blank, then you just have another version of that, right, right. Constantly looking for something new, right? So that's, that's something I wanted to ask you about your so good at identifying subcultures that are worthy of being on television. How do you identify when a subculture is right for television and will be interesting to a wide audience, whether they're familiar with it or not? It dependent on interested in it like my can help someone else to be interested in something I'm not right people come to me and say, oh, I have this great group of people and you have it, and I watch it and I'm like, I wouldn't watch that show. Yeah, thing is to all lover of reality. TV like just by nature in my heart, I am. What's your favorite show? Worked on? I loved. He mom so much. It hurts me. It's really good. It also is sometimes deeply upsetting which was maybe why hurts. I've never missed it on MTV exact today. I'm like, is still in rehab. Like knocking off at. Literally, always trying to get him for me. I love it so much. I love those girls. I, I don't know. I love it, but I also have an extreme amount of respect
