The AP reports that PBS is considering looking into ways to revisit the groundbreaking documentary An American Family, credited as the first reality TV show. Opportunities to release the series as a DVD or highlight some of the episodes on air and stream the rest on the web could coincide with the upcoming HBO drama, Cinema Verite, starring Diane Lane and Tim Robbins as the Loud couple, who let PBS cameras into their lives in 1973.
