Meeting Planning as Reality TV

When it comes to TV, what is it about New Jersey that defines (some would say defies) reality? First it was Jersey Shore, then Housewives of New make way for Welcome to the Party, a reality show currently in development that follows the exploits of Englewood, N.J.-based event-planning company Total Entertainment in the course of various projects.

"Reality TV is so hot now," says Marc Jason, founder, president and CEO of Total Entertainment, "what better way to promote unique brands than a show that engages the audience through the eccentric and riveting personalities of our staff and our clients?"

The pilot episode (go here for highlights) recently won two coveted Telly Awards, bestowed upon local, regional and cable offerings of distinction. Stay tuned for pertinent details when the show becomes a, er, reality.
