The Guilty Pleasure Reality Show That Hooked Producer Mike Fleiss

Mike Fleiss recently revealed he doesn’t watch reality TV despite revolutionizing the genre. However, he does have one show that’s reeled him in: He admits Wicked Tuna is his top TV indulgence.

The unscripted series, which follows commercial tuna fishermen in the North Atlantic, is rich in human drama and the real-life stakes of a dangerous profession.
