Story Inspiration

I had a friend who appeared on the Jerry Springer show a couple of times in the early 2000s. While there may have been many participants with real experiences and strange tales, my friend’s story wasn’t one of them. Essentially, my friend, an actor, was just acting.

However, Jerry Springer’s competitors, such as Maury Povich, Jeremy Kyle, Rikki Lake, Sally Jesse Raphael, etc., all have their own selection of people who wish and want to air their dirty laundry for all to see. This made me imagine the reactions of those involved when their sordid secrets are revealed for televisual entertainment. That’s how “Nice Little Crisis” made its way into my head and onto paper.
