Moving out of your apartment

The most intense reality TV show would be one about people moving out of their apartment when their lease is up. I think there are a lot of people out there who would want to watch a TV show about tenants frantically trying to clean up their apartments and getting their full security deposit back.
Seeing someone win a quarter of a million dollars on the Biggest Loser is ok… good. But it doesn’t trigger as many emotions as seeing someone get their entire $600 security deposit back. Someone moving out of their apartment doesn’t just make good reality TV, it also makes a good movie. Forget A-bombs and asteroids. That is nothing compared to the emotions, pain, drama, uncertainty, and fear involved with moving out of your apartment.
The only reason there hasn’t been a movie made about someone moving out of their apartment, is that it is too much story for one movie. A movie about someone moving out of their apartment needs to be a trilogy a minimal to tell the entire story. Maybe, just maybe, you could cut the story down to a movie and a sequel. But to do that, you would have to cut out all of the parts about the landlord.
