Southwest Airlines In Reality Series
Southwest Airlines has found a way to turn the tables on its recent bad publicity over tossing lesbian kissers, loose-trousered rock stars and corpulent movie directors from its jet planes.
The Dallas-based air carrier is allowing cameras into its midst for a reality show. The cable network TLC has ordered 13 episodes of a new reality show focused on the trials and tribulations of a modern American airline company.
The as-yet untitled series -- which producer ITV Studios America will put into production starting this weekend at airports in Baltimore and Denver -- promises to take viewers "behind the scenes of the modern air travel experience, sharing the large-scale operations and personal customer stories at Southwest Airlines," according to a TLC statement.
