I remember a Shadowrun book released in the last 2-3 years that had a description of a "trid show" that focused on shadowrunners. It would follow actual shadowrunning teams on their runs, record stuff, then soon after release it on pay-per-view.

Which supplement did this appear in?

Sounds like someone's stealing from XCrawl! – mxyzplk Oct 14 '11 at 3:26
The Sprawl Survival Guide from SR3 had this too. – Simon Withers Oct 15 '11 at 2:53
There is this SR3 mission… which put the runners is a situation like that – JF Dion Apr 30 '12 at 20:02

There's a story like this in one of the glossy "fluff" sections of the Shadowrun 4E core rulebook, anniversary edition. I think maybe that's what you're thinking of?

I believe this example had someone stealing from a store. And it went on to say that there are "black trids" which have the main character dying in them. – Kedearian Oct 25 '10 at 17:52

The story 'Fresh meat' in the 20th Anniversary edition* of the core rulebook by Jennifer Harding uses the conceit of a 'reality show' featuring a group of first time shadowrunners and documenting their story.

The short story itself only covers the team leader 'DangerSensei' (who is aware it is a reality show) meeting the potentials and choosing his team from them.

*it may also appear in base 4e, I can't confirm)
