Reality Therapy

Hosted by Danny Passman and Lauren Burger, executive producer and casting agents for unscripted television. Get to know these creatives who develop shows for Bravo, Discovery, TLC, Travel, Food Network, & VH1 as they chat process and recant war stories with in-studio industry guests, plus take live calls from potential talent in casting interviews.




As Danny tries to make Lauren more vulnerable, Heather Hauswirth of the @NYPost is opening herself up to new things like sex parties and the NYC Subway Wizard. Will these three ever let Bklyn John of the “Brooklyn Bandits” score his own reality tv show, or does he strike out?


Pharaoh & The Sisters

On this episode, Hosts Danny & Lauren - two people who somehow can't even find one person to date - meet Pharaoh who is easily making it work with two: Hennessy and Champagne (aka Crystal and Courtney) … and that's just the beginning of this unique love story. But is it unique enough to break the stigma against polygamy-based reality shows?
