Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be a new concept for another reality TV show, Ski Town Productions takes the stage.

The American Ski Syndicate has hired the cheapest production company they could find to produce “Reality Town USA.” The winner of the show will replace Billy the Kidd (the director) as the new director of skiing.

“We always say this, but this is the funniest of all the shows,” said Brian Harvey, actor, producer and owner of Ski Town Productions. “Uncontrollable body functions is what we are always shooting for, and the more people drink, the more funny we are.”

The show is rated PG-13 for its adult content, but Harvey assures the public that what you see on TV is far worse than what you will see on stage.

The multimedia production spoofs all many hit reality TV shows, including “Survivor,” “Real World” and “The Apprentice.”

“It is spoofing on the genre and what a ridiculous genre it is,” Harvey said. “I actually had to watch some reality TV shows for this, and I have TV.”

You don’t have to have seen previous Ski Town Productions shows or be a local to get the jokes, but they will be making fun of the city, the county, the ski area and themselves. But unlike other shows, the writers have been working on this script for a whole year – and the script was actually finished before the cast started rehearsing.

“We’re trying to be a professional group who can hold to a higher standard,” Harvey said. “There is no cross-dressing in this one:well, for me anyways.”

Reality Town USA will introduce new characters and bring back some of past favorites and includes seven original songs.

“As we’ve gotten older, we’ve gotten better,” Harvey said. “There’s a good plot line, the songs are really, really tight, and there’s a great twist to the ending. That’s all I can say.”
