From The Hollywood Reporter: “Forget televised competitions. The real showdown is among the stars and execs scrambling to make their unscripted series stand out in an increasingly competitive landscape. For its 2013 Reality Heat List, The Hollywood Reporter ranks the 25 shows, creators, execs and characters that are winning the race. Entries were selected based on ratings, pop-culture and social-media impact, buzziness of talent and producers, greenlight and spinoff power and overall lasting imprint on the reality business between March 2012 and March 2013.” Among those who made the cut? RuPaul’s Drag Race and the upcoming Life with La Toya! Both World of Wonder productions, thank you very much! From the article: ”‘We’re the crack dealers of reality,’ says Fenton Bailey, co-founder of World of Wonder, the factory that churns out addictive fare like RuPaul’s competition show Drag Race, whose season-five premiere was the highest-rated in Logo history. Up next: Life With LaToya, debuting April 13 on OWN, peeks inside the world of Michael Jackson’s eccentric little sister. ‘We’re drawn to people who fly their freak colors high and proud,” adds Bailey. “And that’s not just gay. That’s everybody!’” CONDRAGULATIONS!
