Reality television may be all the rage now, but shows such as The Jersey Shore and the Real World are filmed with the younger generation in mind. Now, the WE channel will be producing a reality series that highlights the daily lives of a group of active living seniors.
Sunset Daze, which follows a group of active seniors between the ages of 61 and 70 years old, premieres tonight on the women's cable channel.
"So many people watch those other shows," cast member Linda Durkee-Quigley, 64, told the Sun Times.
"But we have all that stuff on our show, too."
The reality series is set in a retirement living community located in Sun City, Arizona, and will follow the active living seniors as they go drinking and dancing, and enjoy each other's company in a hot tub.
"From my point of view, the show is trying to let everybody know that whether you're 55 or 65 or whatever, life doesn't end at that age," Durkee-Quigley told the news source.
According to Neilsen.com, the average American watches four hours of television every day.
