I’m a sucker for reality tv. I hope this won’t make you think less of me, but my current favorites include Gold Rush, Bering Sea Gold, Pawn Stars, Hardcore Pawn, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Top Chef, Million Dollar Listing, and Storage Wars. I know I’m not alone because more and more of these shows are being put on the air. We’ve seen reality tv completely change the type of programming that a number of channels run. Bravo, A&E, and The History Channel are prime examples. The latter two are both part of A+E Networks, which is a New York, NY based “global media company with joint ventures and channels all over the world.” Their brands include A&E, Lifetime, HISTORY, LMN, BIO, H2, HISTORY en Español, Crime & Investigation Network, Military HISTORY, Lifetime Real Women, A&E IndieFilms, A+E Networks International, A+E Networks Digital, and A+E Networks Consumer Products. I’m sure you’ve watched at least one of them recently.
A+E Networks got their start in 1984 with A&E (Arts and Entertainment). A lot has changed since then. They’ve added quite a few networks and put a huge emphasis on reality tv. The consistent theme across A+E Networks is that they’ve been in the “business of reinventing storytelling since 1984.” It’s all “about bringing human stories to life, knowing that it is in life itself that those stories originate.” If you’d like to dive a little deeper into each of the networks, you can get started here. And from their you can dive into the programming on each of the channels. If you like what A+E Networks is doing, head over to their Jobs page. Right now there are some great opportunities for new or recent grads to check out:
Almost all of these positions are listed as “Freelance.” My guess is that this is a way for A+E Networks to avoid paying insurance or something like that. It’s kind of crappy, but I guess jobs in tv are hard to come by.
