Law Professor Seeking To Bring Reality Show On Globalization To TV

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A law professor in San Diego has turned the weighty issue of globalization into a prime time reality show, but he’s looking for some help to get it on air.

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 school’s 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 he’s looking for “anyone with money” to bring his reality show to TV but admits he’s not confident it’ll ever air.

In his words, “It’s too damn smart.”
