A crew for a reality show was robbed at gunpoint in Oakland, Calif. The thieves took equipment valued at $50,000.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Reality intruded on a reality show. People in Oakland took video for a show called "This Is Summer," which follows Bay Area 17-year-olds. The crew was wrapping for the day when men put guns to their heads. Luckily, nobody was hurt, but the East Bay Times says the men took $50,000 worth of equipment. We do not know if anybody took video of the robbery, but if they did, you know, that could be material for a reality show. It's MORNING EDITION.
