Dramatizing the extreme depths to which some "reality shows" will sink in order to boost ratings, Good Television follows one such moral spiral to its explosive end. Connie -- an intervention counselor and producer of a television series that showcases people battling addictions -- has reservations about an upcoming episode. But against her better judgment, she agrees to travel to South Carolina with the rest of her colleagues in order to profile a young meth addict and his family. Connie's superiors are hungry for a risk-filled, riveting and potentially explosive episode, while Connie's concerned that she won't be able to fight off her own inner-demons. Learn More
