About the Author
Dr. Melissa Caudle is an experienced reality show creator and producer who brings her expertise in the area of writing business plans for reality shows to you the reader. Dr. Mel has built a solid reputation as a reality show creator having started as a production coordinator in New Orleans, La on the reality show, "The Girls Next Door" featuring the three Playmates and Hugh Hefner. That was the beginning of transferring her knowledge from feature film production. She discovered quickly that although there were vast similarities there were also vast differences. Two huge differences were pitching a reality show and developing a business plan for one. Isolating the differences came by applying her experience as an adjunct professor, teacher and researcher. “I never knew that a Ph.D. in Statistical Analysis would prove beneficial in creating reality shows and business plans, “she says. “But it did.”

Producers do not need to know if you are a teacher, a lawyer, a cooker, whatever you do for earning your life, they only care about your project, pitch or idea and what you have to contribute to it. It is also true that you have to find investors and sponsors to get your Reality show produced unless you have something of interest for a TV Network.
Finally, go ahead, send your pitch, project, business plan or idea to the writer to the e-mail address provided in the book and you'll get no answer at all and you'll be waiting for an answer that you'll never get, hers. This is called: MARKETING.
The only problem i found in this book is all her mispellings. The author constantly harps on us to keep your propsal spelling error free when infact this book has tons of spelling errors. I have to wonder if the she even used a spell check because most of these errors would've easily been picked up by any spell check program. I've never heard of a "Proudcer" or a "Cannon" Video Camera.
But aside from that, this book does inform you very well on what do to.
