Even before the first episode of "Amish" was in the can, NLTV was already working with CBS on a reality adaptation of New Line feature franchise "Nightmare on Elm Street" dubbed "Real Nightmares." Kroll has several other projects in the hopper, and he intends to be actively involved as an executive producer on all of them.
Local reality adaptations are also hits, such as Nora's "112," based on the "Rescue 911" formula.
