Reality shows are a genre of television programs where real people attend to their own businesses, amaze us with their talent or take part in other activities. It is a slice of life as it happens.
The subjects cover nearly every part of life as some reality shows educate while others entertain.
“The Car Chases” is not a police chase drama. It takes the television viewers on a wild ride behind-the-scenes of the car business with the people who know cars. Jeff Allen jumps at any chance to find, fix and flip classic cars.
