Who has never watched a reality TV show (even for just 5 minutes) and liked it (even just a little)? Come on, be honest, people! Thirty-five-year-old Yasmina is addicted to reality TV. Hailing from a family of academics, she decides to prove to them that these programs are a worthy subject of research, and she joins the team of a hit show to analyze this captivating and universal phenomenon from the inside! Moved by a shared passion for the social sciences, Tilila Relmani, a psychologist by training, and Stella Lory, a comics artist, shrewdly question the psychosocial mechanisms at play in the addictive desire to watch strangers’ private lives unfold on television.
