''[=EDtv=]'' was part of a wave of films released in the late 90's that dealt with the concept of "cinematic television" (others include ''{{Pleasantville}}'' and ''Film/TheTrumanShow''). Although different to anyone who's seen both, ''[=EDtv=]'' and ''Truman'' were [[DuelingMovies widely compared at their time of release]] due to their (at the time, almost unique) plots about a guy whose life is turned into a television show. The main difference between the two films was that Ed was an active participant in the show, inviting the camera crew to come with him whenever he would do something, and using his fame to subvert the expectations of both the audience and the producers. ''[=EDtv=]'' also [[UnbuiltTrope predicted]] the [[RealityTV reality television]] boom of the early 2000's by portraying an average person being filmed at set hours of the day (a concept that has been used to great effect in several reality shows, including ''BigBrother'').
