You think they'll air it? It's reality television.
7 November 2017 | by (Falconara Marittima, Italy) – See all my reviews

A bunch of actors were performing before a camera inside a flat. During the acting, one actress took a look outside the window, screaming out loud. A dead body was lying across the street, probably he jumped out of a roof. Detectives soon realized it couldn't have been a suicide, the victim was a member of the TV-show and he was actually shoved by some other actor. The TV-show, something similar to "Big Brother", broadcast from dawn till dusk the phony lives of several roommates confined in an apartment. All the actors are teenagers and they get used to arguing for any reasons, in order to rise the share. Briscoe and Green manage to find a footage of what really happened in that roof, thanks to a cameraman (Matthew Saldivar) who shot the entire argument occurred between two guys for petty reasons. But there is someone behind the scenes who pulls the strings....

Luckily, this kind of reality show is out of fashion nowadays, but at the time of the episode they were very widespread worldwide (even in my Country). Many people believed the people's behavior was actually real, not realizing the production staged every line of the show. There has been a change in audience's taste over the years and it's for the best.
