Here is the news:
The CW announced today that its new docu-series Fly Girls, which gives a glimpse into the lives of five “beautiful Virgin America flight attendants,” is set to debut midseason. The network describes the series as being “about real, down-to-earth young women who happen to have landed in an exceptionally glamorous, high-flying career filled with exotic locations and handsome strangers.” In eight half-hour episodes, the show will follow the flight attendants to Las Vegas, South Beach, and New York City, as well as give a peek into their shared home-base “crash pad” in Los Angeles.
That is enough to worry us. Is this a shallow reality show? Is this a documentary-style series, where the cameramen merely watch and don’t try to script or set an agenda. We would rather the latter, hoping the above description is more marketing than truth, and that it isn’t something that makes us want to change the channel.
