Announcing the launch of the new shows, Reality TV marketing manager - India and Asia Pacific - Ms Flecka Picardo is quoted in media reports as saying, "Reality TV is the only channel dedicated to real life events and phenomenon which is unscripted, un-staged and unformatted. The new programmes will bring to our viewers in India, gripping narrations of events, which can be life transforming. These shows have enjoyed immense popularity in the UK and we expect a good response from the Indian audience as well."
