Faux Shows, A Series of Generic Television Show Openings Created Entirely From Stock Footage

Stock footage company Dissolve has created “Faux Shows”, which features a number of generic television show openings created entirely using their stock footage clips. The shows include Gritty Police DramaTalk Show Where Women Argue Loudly, and Gritty Police Drama: Another Big City among others. The opening sequences play heavily on the tropes of each genre.

Believe it or not, a lot of people still watch major-network TV. We took a break from watching Netflix, HBO, and Vimeo On Demand to ask our sources at a major broadcasting corporation what’s on tap for fall 2015. They leaked us this exclusive preview reel, featuring generic genres, tried-and-true tropes, stereotypical characters, and can’t-miss casting. We smell syndication!
