As these industries have expanded their ability to distribute overseas through each new technological generation of media formats, the additional residuals have brought benefits to those above the line. However, the capacity to produce overseas, in right-to-work states, or in the new reality genres has only degraded the livelihoods of below-the-line workers, even those who belong to unions. Not surprisingly, the nonunionized reality sector teems with substandard con ditions. Below-the-line workers, such as production assistants, loggers, assistant editors, drivers, and other technical crew, are often asked to work 18-hour days with no meal breaks and no health or other benefits, and they face employer coercion to turn in time cards early.

Reality television is largely and properly regarded as a cash cow whose producers have come up with several ways to shrink budgets. First, broadcasters can buy internationally traded, prepackaged, and already successful franchises that require little further creative development beyond some local adaptation. This suits advertisers, who typically look for a level of predictability in their financial investment (Baruh and Park, 2010, p. 5). Producers further oblige by setting up controlled environments – both via the physical setup (often isolated and closely monitored) and through casting and editing – permitting just enough shock and novelty to keep the shows from getting too tired.
