Are reality TV shows worth the watch? From Real Housewives to Hoarders, people want something entertaining to watch. If viewers are not entertained, a reality show won’t last and viewers won’t set aside time every week to watch the reality shows.

If you are tired of reading books at your local bookstore and looking for something interesting to watch as favorite series like Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder take a break, you have a fix with reality TV shows and there is a new reality show making waves with female talents, including former actress & miss Panama Liza Hernandez leading the non-scripted drama, but there is something unique about this show. The element of reality shows exploiting old gossip and controversy is simple not there.

The reality show 'City of Dreams' instead focuses on water cooler conversations centered on drama and dreams. Who knew drama and dreams could be in a reality TV show? The 'City of Dreams' show highlights LA's new class of entertainers, including singers, actresses and models. Each of the cast members have a distinct fan base and platform as viewers witness their struggles to super-stardom unfold in a city where dreams come a dime a dozen. In some ways it reminds me of the television show 'The Voice', which people sing live to follow their dream to become a superstar, but this show is more of a behind the scenes of dream seekers and people want to watch more because it is interesting to look at the trials of becoming America's new darlings. There is just something about watching the human experience as people go in pursuit of happiness, something once known as the American Dream.

The 'City of Dreams' is real to viewers because people understand how a beautiful dream can make one driven and ambitious than any other human experience. On the show former Miss Panama Liza Hernandez found herself the focus of tabloid fodder and notable celebrity romances which made her experience highs and lows, but she chooses to better her life by thinking positive, rebuilding her life and acting career. I have never seen a reality show which shows people never to give up on their dreams like that. People are curious about what will it take for the pageant winner to achieve her goals in a male-dominated industry.

Rounding out the cast are: Tresla Gilbreath, head of Multi Facet Inc. agency, keeping her A-list clients in check all the while making a name for herself in a male-dominated industry; Empress Skia Bleu, an Asian American rapper and single mother whose position as executive assistant to a multi-millionaire has her keeping deep, dark secrets of the high-profile elite; Stevie Boi, an emerging designer whose eye-wear has been worn by Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Madonna, Kanye West, and more; Elle Royal, formerly known as Patwa, who changed her “rap emcee” name to Elle Royal- meaning “She Royal” in French, to reflect her first name, Danielle, and Ayisha Diaz and Lady Selys, a social media beauty and an acclaimed female photographer, respectively. It’s a man’s world, and these ladies know the obstacles faced in reaching the top of the ladder. I'm curious to watch the full season with Liza Hernandez and the cast to see how they make their way to the top of the industry, you might be a reality show game changer.
