Getting ‘Real’

Two syndicators have given go-aheads for reality-based shows for the fall season.

Genesis Entertainment has greenlighted “Emergency Call,” a firm production commitment for fall, with sales to five NBC o&os in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Miami. The show has been bought so far by 82 stations representing 68% of the country and including all top 10 markets.

The program will profile men and women who work in rescue units, fire departments and police forces. A film crew will go with them to the scene of real-life emergencies.

Group W Productions will renew “On Scene: Emergency Response” for a second season. The weekly half-hour hosted by David Forman focuses on the rescue efforts of firefighters, policemen and paramedics and uses only real footage, no recreations.

Clearances already have surpassed 70% of the country, and are led by WNBC-TV New York, KABC Los Angeles and WPWR Chicago.
