In the vein of NIGHTCRAWLER meets Reality TV, SHOOTING THE WARWICKS is a dark comedic satire chronicling just how far reality television will go in order to deliver ratings. Reality Super Producer Mickey Wagner (Adam Rifkin) has created a new reality show called "Meet the Warwicks" in which an unsuspecting family is picked at random and put under 24 hour surveillance without their knowledge. There's only one problem, the family is boring. Under pressure from the network to deliver something spectacular, Mickey decides to inject a little producer-created conflict to spark a fire. But with Mickey pulling the strings, prime time family entertainment quickly spirals out of control and rips this once happy family apart... and the network can't get enough. Intoxicated by his power and success, Mickey will stop at nothing to push the Warwicks over the edge in order to deliver the greatest finale in TV history.(C) Vega Baby
Although Rifkin briefly toys with a similar polemic against the genre's exploitative and sensationalistic nature, his effort devolves into the typical premium cable mix of gratuitous nudity and simulated sex.
