Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/HalloweenResurrection'' features an in-universe reality show where the protagonists spend time inside the house of serial killer Michael Myers - which is rigged with all sorts of traps. Though the immoral part comes in when it still broadcasts as Michael Myers shows up to murder everyone...


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheComeback'' is about a washed-up sitcom actress desperate to get back into the spotlight, so she agrees to be in a reality show that involves being humiliated at every opportunity. What makes this astonishing is that the show predates many actual such shows done by real celebrities. Lisa Kudrow, who played the lead, claims many friends and acquaintences thought it was a show about her own life.

* ''Series/UnREAL'' portrays its ShowWithinAShow as this. The main characters are producers and assistants on ''Everlasting'', a sleazy parody of ''Series/TheBachelor'' (which, notably, ShowRunner Sarah Gertrude Shapiro had [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory previously worked for]]), manipulating the contestants for the sake of drama.
