James Cooper is the assistant dean at the California Western School of Law and teaches a summer course on the North American Free Trade Association (NAFTA).
He is also the creator and producer of Globalization: The Reality Show, a proposed reality show that follows law school students who get jobs in a Tijuana maquiladora a factory where parts from the U.S. are shipped in, assembled, then shipped back to the U.S.
The pilot was shown last night (Jan. 11) at the schools campus and featured students working in a factory and trying to survive a week on a workers salary of $60. Cooper says, They run out of money in the first three days.
Cooper says hes looking for anyone with money to bring his reality show to TV but admits hes not confident itll ever air.
In his words, Its too damn smart.
