Warren Cohen, Supervising Producer at VH1 has revealed what the channel is currently looking for, in a recent 30 Minutes With… session at Realscreen.
VH1 is still immersed in celebreality shows but is looking to replicate the emotional intensity of The Surreal Life in an environment outside the house.
Tool Academy, a new show where errant boyfriends are sent to boot camp to make them into husband material is doing well.
VH1 is looking for more shows that feature real people rather than celebrities.
They commission x8 Rock Docs per year and are looking for high-stakes series with a “demented VH1 twist”.
