The Os­bournes: The Price of Re­al­ity, SBS Vice­land, Tues­day at 10.40pm

THIS doc­u­men­tary takes a look at the story be­hind the ground-break­ing re­al­ity TV se­ries that cat­a­pulted the Os­bourne fam­ily into the global spotlight and the price of fame.

In its first sea­son The Os­bournes, which fol­lowed the do­mes­tic life of heavy metal singer Ozzy Os­bourne and his fam­ily, was cited as the most-viewed se­ries ever on MTV.

Over the four sea­sons, view­ers watched the fam­ily as they dealt with ma­jor events such as Sharon’s bat­tle with can­cer and the af­ter­math of an ATV ac­ci­dent that nearly killed Ozzy.

Ozzy, Sharon, Jack, and Kelly talk about fact, fic­tion, and the slip­pery line be­tween the two.
