MUMBAI: Zone Reality, which focusses on real life programming will present two special day events and five new shows.

Zone Romantica and Zone Reality Asia marketing manager Flecka Picardo says, "It has always been our consistent endeavour to introduce programmes
which explore new facets of human life. Our new shows this month reiterate the fact that every situation encountered by human beings is interpreted at a subjective level."

America's Dumbest Criminals kicks off on 4 September. This is a light hearted show which humorously depicts the pitfalls which criminals
and offenders create for themselves and hence get trapped by law enforcement agencies. Actual surveillance camera footage is interspersed
with dramatic reactions of criminals.

Inside the Parole Board kicks off on 2 September. This tracks convicted prisoners' desperate last grasps for freedom and the victims' last chance to be heard. But as the offenders seize their final opportunity and plead innocent and the victims forcefully voice the grievances they suffered
what is really interesting to observe is not whether their arguments are right or wrong, but the sheer force of their conviction.

The single-minded desire for freedom and justice makes their arguments so convincing and powerful that it becomes almost difficult to believe that these same people were the perpetrators of crime. In the victim's case it is a transformation from a powerless entity to someone who has the power to determine the fate of another individual.

Medical Mavericks premiers on 16 September. This is another serial which shows that if the subjective aspect comes into play it can cause people to drastically alter their mindset about normally accepted things. This show looks at a trauma surgeon who crusades against violence
after the gang related death of his younger brother.

Storm Stories whichyu ckicks off on 11 September features true stories of ordinary people caught in extraordinary circumstances. It has footage of extreme weather and is a true account of how human beings trapped in these situations have survived. The show aims to celebrate the
resilience of the human spirit.

Tthere are also three special event days scheduled this month. Each day will have a specific programme theme and will feature some of the best shows of Zone Reality under that theme. For instance Classic Cheaters Weekend on 9 and 10 September will include all the special shows on
Cheaters. Prison Night? on 2September will feature various shows which are either directly or indirectly involved with criminals.
Totally Outrageous Night on 3 September will bring together some of the shows which entailed very outrageous programming styles.
