The Rolling Stone. Marie Claire. Elle. These mags have something in common: They’ve all turned to reality TV to drum up publicity and lure new readers.
And now, Cosmopolitan is the latest publication to jump on the unscripted soap bandwagon.
So if you’re curious about how a glossy mag is put together and how it stays relevant in the digital era, So Cosmo may have some answers.
If you aren’t into that, there’s the trashy — hey, it’s on E! — The Devil Wears Prada-ish office politicking to keep you entertained. (In the first ep, Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles, a Tilda Swinton lookalike, sends her staff into panic mode after a surprise announcement that she’s stepping down.)
Maybe it’s time for 8 DAYS to get our own reality show... Or maybe not. (Then again, for that to happen, we'd need a proper office. You see, we don’t have one…) FYI: Joanne Peh was once an 8 DAYS intern. True story. (Photo: E!)
Watch it on: E! (Singtel TV Ch 328 & StarHub Ch 441)
