Imagine the pressure involved with coming out to unsuspecting friends and family members after a lifetime in the closet. Now imagine going through with this major decision on national television! That's the concept behind "Way Out," a new reality show developed for Showtime by the producer of "Intervention."
The show will be similar to "Intervention" in that it follows one individual, and his or her family's reactions to a life-changing event. Viewers will get a peek into the subject's life before he or she comes out, while also finding out how relationships change after they break the news.
Do you think a show like this just sensationalizes a private moment, or will it help people empathize with gay people?
