E! will premiere docuseries “For Real: The Story of Reality TV”, hosted by Andy Cohen, on Thursday, March 25 at 9 p.m. ET. The seven-part limited event series explores different themes including celebreality, dating, competition and extreme makeover series, among others, and shares revelations from those industry executives, producers and journalists who helped catapult reality programming into the pop culture zeitgeist.
The logline: Featuring untold stories and “never-before-seen” footage, Cohen reminisces with some of the biggest stars to examine the evolution and decades-long cultural impact of unscripted television. Cohen navigates reality’s storied past as he dishes with the Kardashian/Jenner family ahead of their final season of the global phenomenon “Keeping Up with the Kardashians;” celebrates all that Black women have brought to the genre with an insightful conversation with Kandi Burruss, Vivica A. Fox and producers Holly Carter and Mona Scott-Young; reveals secrets from “The Bachelor” with Jason and Molly Mesnick; and brings together cast members of the first season of “The Real World” for a long-awaited and tearful reunion after 20 years.
