Chris Wronski, President of Zone Vision said: "Reality TV is enormously popular with audiences and we are delighted with its success. We have rolled out the channel to a number of countries in Europe this year with further worldwide deals in the pipeline. We aim to make Reality TV the number one brand for real-life, action-packed programming."

There is new, emotion-filled and hard-hitting programming lined up for Reality TV in April. Headlining the schedule is Cheaters, an investigative show designed to strike fear into the hearts of those who lead a double life and cheat on their partners and thrilling new series Eye of the Storm, which features some of the most violent weather footage ever filmed.

Also in April, the cream of the LA County Sheriff's Department return to Reality TV in LA Air 5. Audiences can witness how they deal with the aftermath of extreme situations from explosions and bloody accidents, to freeing hostages and pursuing criminals. Critical Moments 2 goes further afield, covering the entire USA, to bring footage of emergency response teams in action.

Reality TV shows that life under the media spotlight is not all fun and games. Some celebrities have learnt the hard way that they're subject to the same laws as the rest of us and each episode of new series Hollywood and Crime focuses on a star who has fallen foul of the law and had to face the consequences.

In addition the April schedule continues with old favourites like Coppers, Outrageous Vacation Videos and Chef's School and there are brand new episodes of Little Miracles, Curtis Court and Weird Wheels.
