Director: Brad Robinson.
A biting satire on how obsessed our culture has become with reality television, Public Interest delves into the minds and actions of those who put these programs on the air, those who aspire to be on them, and ultimately, the American culture that has become obsessed with them. Looking not only at how crazy the phenomenon has become, but also how outrageous it could easily get, Public Interest is a 'must see' for anyone who loves OR hates reality television.
