Im sorry man but a 3D Reality Show is a horrible idea. First off very very few people have those over priced super overrated 3D TVs. They only look good straight on and if your at all of an angle it will look horrible. Second Reality shows have no need at all for 3D. They have nothing that would actually look entertaining in 3D. They are about drama not visuals and they are reality show, meaning anything can happen. You have to plan a lot for 3D heavy shots. I wouldn't waste your time with it man. you going to waste a lot of money making a pilot that no one will even look at when you tell them 3d reality show. They will laugh at you and you'll be out 10 grand. Talk about depressed.
