...they love your work on chiefsplanet and want you to have your own TV show. They'd like to hear your pitch for the type of show you'd like to do - sitcom, drama, talk, variety, etc. - the setting of the show, the main characters, and how you would cast yourself in the lead role. If they like it, there's a seven-figure salary in it for you.

On your mark, get set, go.

I'd go with a sitcom format myself.

I'd be a guy with a job procuring strange things for rich people, which require me to travel the world and do things like talk native villagers into giving up their sacred totem pole for a rich client, and stealing it if I can't buy it. I'd have an offbeat assistant who keeps in contact with me by phone and insists on booking me in the cheapest hotel rooms possible, and I'd hang out a lot with the flight crew of a Northwest Airlines jet that I keep finding myself on, which would include a pilot with Vietnam flashbacks and a beautiful stewardess who is my on-again, off-again love interest when she's not tormenting passengers. Another recurring character would be an Arab guy who's always on my flight that other passengers are afraid to sit next to. I think he would be a pharmaceutical salesman. The copilot would be Vietnamese.

Let me give you a word of advice. O.K.? I want you to stay away from me. I don't wanna talk to you, and I don't wanna hear anymore of your stupid little notes and suggestions. I don't like you. So if you got any other problems whether it's raisins, prunes, figs, or any other dried fruit, just keep it to yourself and stay out of my way, O.K.?

MY SHOW:

It would be about me and two of my best friends (robots) sitting in a theater and making fun of bad movies that an evil scientist has given us... You see, the scientist thinks that he can find a single movie that will drive people crazy, and he will be able to control their minds. Mostly though, that will just be the generic justification for all the fun gags and riffing that me and my robot pals do to these cheezy motion pictures...

My idea for a show would be a sitcom. 4 main characters, one a comedian by profession, one a loser type another a slightly ditzy woman and the last a loose screw type of dude.

The show would be about nothing. Every week thats all the show would be about...nothing.

Mine would be about starving kids in some barren part of Africa. Every day they'd have zany adventures about the flies on their face, or how swollen their stomachs are from malnutrition. It wouldn't be dependent on a recurring cast because a lot of them would die anyway (help keep operating costs down). It would occasionally have guest stars that played the local Warlords, and they'd come in and steal the food brought by aid workers and kill innocent tribe members. They could also have episodes that touched on social issues, like when the entire village gets infected with AIDS.

I think it would be a laugh riot.

Perhaps you could have an episode where the army rangers and Delta force come in to take out a few of the warlords, then all hell breaks loose, guns ablazing and helicopters getting shot down.

I think something with Tommy Lee and GoChiefs as his man servant could be good for late night programming. Throw in ENDelt driving around throwing beer cans out of his window, chasing fat chicks and you've got a sleeper on your hands.
Guest appearance by a CIA trained assassin named Rain Man and you've got a mega-hit.

There's an armless Vietnamese fisherman skilled in Kung Fu, a homosexual latino midget, a hot blonde with max-sized hoots who's got a photographic memory, and an Italian chef who can kill with cooking utensils...

Set in the Wild West, 1870 or so...and they're heading towards Cali to set up a gold mine claim.

I'll tell you what would be hot. Hear me out. You've got this bachelor dude, and he's living in this apartment. But not only does he live in an apartment, he's living with TWO women. And every episode they get into these messy situations, and stuff always gets screwed up with sexual connotations, but in the end it always works out. Hilarity ensues.

They could have a landlord who they have to fool every episode, too!

You know who I think would be perfect for the bachelor role? That reverend guy from the Waltons.

I’m the oddball son of a family of superheroes. My father is a world renowned hero that saved the universe several times, he can fly, is invulnerable to anything know to man, can shoot heat beams out his eyes, freeze stuff with his breath…all that good stuff.

My brother can run at speed of light and has two little lightning bolts sticking out the side of his superhero costume and my mother can summon the elements to do her bidding.

I have all their powers combined but I also possess an awful case of ADD.

My powers in combination with my disorder wreak havoc on society and I get myself into zany situations by doing things like flying right through buildings and dropping like a rock in crowded stadiums and arenas when shiny objects or dogs with a fluffy tail divert my attention.

While daydreaming about getting a kangaroo for Christmas in trigonometry class one day I simultaneously start a blizzard in Australia and sneeze, flash freezing the entire class including the teacher. Trying to be part of the cool crowd I shoot a spitball at a guy from the math club. The spitball lodges in his brain and kills him.

They try to put me on Ritalin but I refuse and my father is at odds whether to destroy me before I destroy the earth.

My show would be similar to the old show 'Coach' instead of an actual football coach, we would have a group of Internet BB junkies win a lottery syndicate and pool their money to buy a professional franchise.

We follow this group misfortunes as they actually put into practice all of the things that other coaches/front office people 'should have done'.

Definately would be a comedy...
