    I already brought this up somewhere (it might have been my blog, but at the moment, I don't remember for sure) but I figured Crime and Punishment, Celebrity Edition. Celebrities arrested for whatever reason that could get them into rehab, or alcohol awareness programs or anger management classes. I figured this could show if the justice system here in the US really is as lopsided as it seems (in other words, do the celebrities truly get pampered or are they treated like every one else would be if they were in the same situation?) At the end of the season the viewers could vote on whether they think the particular punishment was too lenient or too harsh, and whether the celebrity involved learned his or her lesson

    One I just thought of would be another "reality" show in which maybe ten contestants got to pitch their ideas for new TV shows... the only catch being they could NOT use the reality show genre. It would have to be creating a sit com, or a drama, or whatever, but no reality tv show. Each week, viewers get to vote to narrow it down, and when the season's over, the person who's left gets to have his or her show made the next season for the network for a trial run.

    Inventors
    Three roommates (Roman, Mike, and Dirk) are constantly trying to invent, well anything. Roman is a nerdy science guy with a mega computer trying to create anythingng he can think of from a cure to stupidity to a vortex to a new dimension. His other roomate Mike loves extreme sports, the only problem is he sucks at all of them. He's constantly taunting Dirk, and trying to create the next extreme sport. Dirk spends his time in the shed trying to find interesting ways to blow things up, and often causes Roman's inventions to malfunction. Their single neighbor Boobie cannot stand the constant noise coming from their house, and the constant damage to his house their inventions cause. Everyday is a new odd invention, or just a very odd situation.

    I call this show I invented: Outcast Town

    A girl is shunned by her peers, simply because she is pretty, smart, and shy. One day, sick of being treated awfully and like an outcast, she decides to run away.

    She's walked for hours, and by now, she's in an isolated forest, and discovers a strange town, where people from around the 20th century had wandered to after being treated like outcasts, and had been converted into something representing their emotions when walking into the town, whether it be sadness, anger, bitterness, boredom, and thus, creates a city of mutant-like citizens, to dwell in this city for all eternity, but are just fine with that, since they love it there.

    Their leader, whom they nicknamed Spikez, due to his spiky and unruly hair, and the supposed founder (the first citizen) of the town, was once a tall, young, friendly businessman from the 1940s, a time when "a great war was occuring with a foreign land, called Germany". He'd often be late for work, because he was too busy entertaining and playing with the local children. His boss fired him for dressing too ridiculously, such as wearing a bow-tie, and having his suit be striped with red and yellow colors. Greatly saddened by this, he bids a tearful farewell to the children, telling them he'll have to leave. The children all watch, sobbing over their lost friend. He claims to have discovered the town one night while taking a walk, because he couldn't sleep. He names it "Outcast Town", due to the town being empty and isolated.

    He stays and sleeps in a house, and the next morning, wakes to find his body transformed. He now has his hair black and unruly, pale white skin, glowing red eyes, sharp teeth, black claws, a long, pointy nose, and his suit changed from being red and yellow, to black and white.

    The girl bonds with Spikez, and decides to stay. The next day, however, she looks in a mirror, and sees that she's been turned into an anthromorphic rabbit. She asks how she can be changed back, and says only with a certain magical staff it can happen. However, it belongs to the evil outcast known as Thornen, an outcast who was banished due to his practice of black magic and satanism, which turned him into a hideous and demonic towering creature.

    I would classify this series as a black comedy/supernatural.

    The Little Bastard Show: A comedy about a scheming hooligan kid who commits every crime imaginable and is always cooking up capers and ponzi schemes that always blows up in his face and sometimes literally. The Good Ol Boys Show: It's what the Dukes Of Hazard would be like if it were crossed with Southern Comfort,( the movie not the whiskey ) The Mis Adventures Of Sheriff Lobo, Deliverance, Wolf Creek, Magnum Force, Lone Wolf McQuade.

    my idea is a show called "project reincarnate"

    its about two 80 year olds that create a machine which everytime they die, all of their memories get put in a new person, basicly taking over that person and living a new life.

    Tyler House
    Centered around the mundane events of two college roommates' lives, there's a lot more to the university life than writing papers with uninteresting prompts and curriculum that means as much to your major as sweater does to a polar bear. Their days, however, never turn out as ordinary as thought.

    Red + Blue (as in the colours of a siren)


    Two estranged brothers, Jacob and Ryan McFarlen, one working for the fire brigade and one who's a paramedic, meet up during a blaze at a power plant. Many various things develop over the next few seasons such as their grandfather's death, Jacob's co-worker Sanchez is paralyzed and many other things.


    I have written and filmed the first four series, and have planned a fifth and sixth. Reply for details.
