Security company plans reality TV show for hackers

Posted by Mike Luttrell

If parking officers, mall cops, and cake makers can get their own reality show, why not people who actually do something interesting for a living? LIGATT Security International has announced it will be the focus of the first ever reality TV series on computer hacking.

The weekly documentary/reality series will center around company CEO Gregory Evans and his day-to-day quest to find the latest hacks out there and ensure computers around the world remain safe.

Evans said everyone around the office is extremely excited, as viewers will finally be able to see what goes on behind the scenes at one of the cornerstones of the computer industry - the security sector.

"In this day and age of reality show mania, it is not about the 15 minutes of fame, it's more about being able to build your brand and get paid for it. Our audience will be able to view our products from the developmental stages, to shipping to the retail stores, to the customers' satisfaction of our products," said Evans.

The CEO said he's been itching to do a reality show for years, but no one ever took the idea seriously. That is, until he released a book entitled How To Become The World's No. 1 Hacker. That netted a lot of attention not just in the computer enthusiast community but in the mainstream media as well. It was shortly after the book came out that he was contacted by people in Hollywood for the idea to do a reality show.

LIGATT's press release does not mention what network the show will air on, but whatever it is, it's sure to be gripping TV.
