Reality TV meets... haunted house?

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has this little item about a local Halloween attraction, a haunted house named Demon House:

As people buy tickets to enter Demon House in Carroll Township, which opened Friday, they might be surprised to see a disclaimer announcing that they have given Europa Pictures the right to use their likenesses in a TV show. That's because the creepy-looking mansion on 417 Coyle Curtain Road, near Monongahela in Washington County, isn't only a haunted house -- it's also the site of a reality show, "The Haunting of Emerald Hill." Bill McCue, 43, of Washington, Pa., executive producer and director, says he's in negotiations to get the show on network television. He is a partner in Europa Pictures, a production company based in Pittsburgh and Los Angeles. The 14-week program -- which includes 24 actors, the production crew and some of the thrill-seekers who will soon enter the "McCue family estate" for a good scare -- will show viewers what goes on behind the scenes and within the walls of a haunted house. "The show will include all the knock-down, drag-out battles and arguments that go on between the actors and producers in the production process," McCue says. "And believe me, there have been plenty of them."
Sounds like high school drama club, only with a bigger budget... ;-)

Perhaps you may one day learn how to write your own story - instead of copying others - hey "protected static" maybe you too can produce your own tv show - that is if in fact you had the balls.......:) and/or money - go back to mommy and live off her

Bill? Bill McCue? Is that you? Because I can't think of anyone else from PA who would be googling for 'mccue haunted'. Personally, I know that I have better things to be doing that trolling month-old blog posts... So, uh... whatever. Don't let the door hit'cha and all that.

Carnacki! My first critic! Whatever shall I do? I don't know if my ego can stand it! *sob*

Maybe anonymous is explaining how he earned the money to produce a TV show - by living off of mommy and/or raising the money somehow through the use of his balls, which the jeff gannon episode would suggest can be very lucrative.

I must agree with anonymous - it seems clear that whenever you fail at your own life - you start to copy articles of others and try to build one's self up - up to his blogger friends who actually are crying to do more than sit behind a computer and dream. Keep dreaming so the one's who can do. Losers

You didn't just reply to yourself, did you? coz' I remember an IP address coming from PA hanging around here for a long time the night of the previous 'anonymous' comment.

Sheesh. And we're supposed to be the losers? Again, I don't spend my time trolling month-old blog posts to build myself up.

I find it amusing that someone equates producing a reality TV show as succeeding at life.

Know oneself, the philosopher says. I judge my life pretty darn successful. From what little I know of yours protected static I'd have to say the same.

When it comes to success, there's more to life than producing yet another reality show.
