Exclamation < Create Your Own TV Show Contest Thread >

As discussed recently in the TV discussion thread, here's the contest parameters:

1) Declare what network your show is best suited for
2) Establish the genre (comedy, drama, something else) and duration (number of episodes, length of episodes) for your series.
3) Build the cast — There won't be strictly defined rules here, but the chosen actors should fulfill most of these criteria:
– The actors must be people you could plausibly envision doing regular TV work. No casting huge movies stars that are unlikely to commit to such a project at the current stage of their career.
– Cast something like 8 to 10 people for your show. There should be a reasonable balance of lead, secondary and supporting actors. Don't make a show with four big-name actors unless you can really justify a time-share for lead acting.
– Actors chosen should be restricted to those not currently attached to a major television show. Exceptions can be made if the actor's current show is some sort of miniseries/limited run series or he/she is utilized in a small, recurring role on a current show. Ideally, your chosen cast will consist mostly of out-of-work or under-utilized TV actors. Use your best judgment to determine who qualifies.
4) Give a brief description of each character you create.
5) Describe the general premise of your series, including what the pilot episode might entail. Provide 3 to 4 additional plot lines or major themes that might be explored during the show's first season.
6) Explain what currently-existing TV shows might serve as influences for your hypothetical series to give a better sense of the show's format, style, tone and visual presentation.

A few more caveats:

– Avoid reassembling more than two cast members from a single actual TV show.
– The premise of your show doesn't necessarily have to be wholly new and original. You could, for instance, make the show a loose adaptation of sorts from a book or something, though I'd hope you put your own spin on it.
– Include details on the format of the show when applicable. Example: Single camera vs. Multi-cam
– Make sure you detail the setting of the show, both location and time period.

Any questions. I'm not going to moderate this whole contest. I'm just posting the initial details to get it rolling, as requested.

This isn't so much a formal contest as it is a chance to see what cool concept/cast each of us can come up with.

Please post your shows in spoiler brackets.

This would be fun, but I'd just end up using the show I'm actually writing. :(

I'm in the same boat as Drew. But I might make something else up if I can think of anything.

This all started with me thinking of actors that should have new TV shows to star in. If nothing else, build a cast with bare bones of a plot built around them.

So this isn't a draft, just post your own ideas, right? I could probably get this done.
