Geico's Cavemen May Get Own TV Series
Mar 3, 2:39 PM EST


The Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Those Geico "cavemen" shouldn't be so upset after all they may get their own television series. ABC said Friday it had ordered a pilot for a comedy, tentatively titled "Cavemen," that features the characters used in a series of ads by the insurance company.

In the ads, cavemen appear insulted by a Geico pitchman's claim that the company's Web site is so easy to use that "even a caveman can do it."

The potential series, one of 14 pilots that will be produced by Touchstone Television this spring, features the cavemen as they "struggle with prejudice on a daily basis as they strive to live the lives of normal thirty-somethings in 2007 Atlanta."

It's unusual for characters from an advertising campaign to move into shows of their own, but not unprecedented. The CBS comedy "Baby Bob" featured a talking baby that had been used in several advertisements, according to Daily Variety.

The advertising copywriter who helped create the "cavemen" ads is writing the pilot, the studio said.

A pilot order is no guarantee a show will make it on the air; in fact, the majority of pilots don't make it that far.

Maybe they could cast a big, fat, lazy caveman named Ryan?

Those commercials are already stale, how do they think they can sustain a series?

I LOVE those commercials. They tend to be funnier (and smarter) than the show that's on at the time. I hope they retained the same creative team that made the commercials. It's going to be interesting to see how this turns out.

Almost every successful sitcom concept seemed to be a horrible idea in theory. It's really going to come down to quality writing and the actors chosen.

At least it's not another sitcom with the fat, nasty husband and brutally hot wife. I've had quite enough of those, thankyouverymuch.

Not so fast! I can understand why people are dismissing this, but I think it deserves a chance. I read that it's going to be single camera, meaning it will be more like Arrested Development or The Office and less like crappy laugh track studio sitcoms like... well, everything on CBS. This will be a turn-off for the millions of Americans who no like thinking when watching TV, but it shows some promise that at least the quality and intelligence will be there. Hopefully, if it turns out to be a good show, ABC acts more like NBC has with The Office and less like how Fox did with Arrested Development. You've got to give these shows a chance to find its audience.

This show is going to sink faster than a rock tossed off the back of a boat. I thought the spots were OK when they first came out, but as time goes on, the Caveman comes off more and more as an over senative tree hugging PETA member.
