This project explores the process of creating my own reality television series, titled Travels with Charley. Drawn from John Steinbeck’s 1962 novel, my television series focuses on pet travel, and by doing so, I address the impact of reality television and the critiques pertaining to the genre. Alongside the written portion, I produced and submitted the pilot episode of the series.
