A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CELEBRITY

The show will be a one hour weekly and 44 minutes of content. It will combine various segments encompassing the live coverage of a celebrity, vox populi, audience interactivity, nationwide messaging polls, rewards and a prized encounter with the celebrity.

The show will present a celebrity in his most private moments and share them with the audience. It will take candid reactions of the public about the celeb’s latest successes and disasters. These reviews will then be played back in front of the celeb and his reactions covered live.

Before the show, a nationwide messaging contest will be run asking the audience questions about the celebrity. The winner will be invited to dine with the celeb, in full view of the world on the television screens. The results of the contest, thus, will be declared much before the show, and the dining covered in the show.

The show will have three segments. The first segment will cover the celeb’s daily routine – from sunrise to sunset. This segment will be the longest – starting with the beginning of the show and continuing till the end – with other segments put in between.

The second segment will have vox pops of the common man on the celeb’s latest hits and flops, his personal life, latest rumours, etc. This will then be played back in front of the celeb and his amazed reactions captured.

The third segment will be the celeb dining with the winner of the poll. The show will thus fulfill the common man’s fantasy of being next to his idol. While it will cover the common man’s nervousness and anxieties of meeting his idol, it will cover the celeb going all out to make the man at ease.

The end of the show will be the typical routine of the celeb as the day ends, with a fast forward run in on the things usually done in place of the earlier two segments. It will sum up the celeb’s entire day and with the allegory of the day with his life, will touch upon the deeper meanings of the man’s life. The show will cover his motivations, ponder on his desires, and whether the journey has been worth it. With the celeb bidding the audience an emotional adieu, the show/ the day will come to an end, with the promise of a brighter tomorrow.
