Re: Would a world sailing TV show really make good TV
Would sailors, seamen and the masses really tune in every week to watch a show about adventure, discovery, survival, culture, and relief?
There already are shows addressing those desires and most of them will not survive.
Most people nowadays have a ten minute attention span. Sailing is not constantly exciting enough as a spectator sport. It is like watching other people enjoying skiing or surfing. Sure, it is fun to do, but not so fun to watch.
Perhaps if you put vacuous nekkid celebrity women competing in a singing and dancing contest while sailing to win a date with an eligible bachelor of their dreams, it might stay on the air a season or two.
