Scripted television and unscripted television are two completely different genres.
1. Scripted television is all content that’s produced with a script. Examples include television series, movies and commercials.
2. Unscripted television is all content that’s produced without a script. Examples include YouTube talk shows, documentary-series and game shows.
A common misconception is that unscripted television is only reality TV. Unscripted content is an umbrella term for all programming that does not require a formatted script.
