Michael Vick’s dogs getting reality show
Ok, could everyone just turn off your tv sets for a few weeks so these people will understand that we are not going to watch just any old thing they give us?
The latest… Michael Vick’s dogs are getting their own reality show.
National Geographic Channel said Monday that its new series “Dogtown” will spend the next few months documenting the attempted rehabilitation of 22 dogs that belonged to jailed Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick and are now residing at Dogtown, the Best Friends animal sanctuary in Utah.
“Dogtown” is in production on new episodes set to premiere in the summer.
The series will focus on four of the toughest cases as the experts at Dogtown try to “resocialize these seriously aggressive pit bulls.”— Hollywood Reporter: NGC to follow rehab of Vick’s dogs
They should either get permission to use Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab” as the theme song… or perhaps get permission to send Amy Winehouse along with the dogs to be “resocialized”. And I can’t believe the producers don’t see this as the dogs going from one kind of exploitation to another. I guess *gasp!* exploitation = bad and *awww!* exploitation = good? 🙄
Seriously, it’s time to work my way through my Netflix queue and continue finding clever and interesting shows from the BBC that we’ll never see over here. Part of me is pleased about the strike because it’s highlighting a vital part of the Hollywood machine as well as showing how desperately fragile the industry is. They have to put on something so they can intersperse the commercials and endorsements and make you think that you really need a Hummer in the drive and an HDTV in the living room — both for the upcoming Super Bowl, of course.
