In 1999 the inaugural season of the smash CBS series Survivor
hit the air waves. Television audiences were captivated. People watched
in record numbers as normal everyday people competed for a million
dollars. The phenomenon of Reality TV was born.
Since then, reality-based television
shows have accounted for almost 30% of prime time television, a number
that grows significantly each year. Reality TV programming yields a
winning formula. The shows are generally cheap to produce, and are a
ratings bonanza. This is why Reality TV is here to stay, and why it has
essentially taken over the television industry.
HNE Reality was formed in August 2003
to help meet the growing demand from Reality TV production companies
for individuals to appear on their shows. HNE has been a booming
success from the start. We have quickly cemented ourselves as the
industry leader in Reality TV marketing and support casting.
Unlike other "talent" or "recruitment
agencies," HNE Reality's sole focus is marketing our people exclusively
for Reality TV and game show programming. Because of this, HNE Reality
has become a number one resource for Reality TV talent.
HNE provides an unparalleled database
of individuals matching specific criteria and demographics that make
them attractive candidates for upcoming productions. Reality TV's top
casting agents and producers have unlimited access to this database.
The result is that HNE clients (along with their bios, photos, videos
and links) are at the fingertips of the individuals that are going to
be making the decisions for any and all Reality TV castings.
