    What is the model for your “perfect” TV show fantasy? For me it would be this:

    An NBC sitcom created and ran by Robert Carlock starring Lisa Kudrow and Charlize Theron. They both play older widows/moms who are best friends and realize that they have nothing in their life after their children go to college, and try to make their lives be more exciting. Doris Roberts would play Lisa’s mom who annoys the hell out of her. Jane Krakowski would play Charlize’s sister who always one-ups her and all.

    So think, what kind of show would you love to see on television?

    I’m going to go with thedemonhog on that one. The originality and creativity of Lost, mixed with the unpredictable yet honest twists of Breaking Bad. Also, no flash-sideways in Season 6, but more “Ab Aeterno”-like episodes.

    a stylish, campy, over the top nighttime soap in the vein of an Aaron Spelling sudser from the 90’s.    Except with modern twists and a darker edge.    Perhaps a bit more character based. I’d love for somebody like Darren Star to produce it and perhaps somebody like Robert Guza and Charles Pratt to write it.

    I’m thinking it could be called “TYCOONS” and would focus on two rival families who both run competing publishing empires and are fighting tooth and nail to survive in the changing economy.    To add a soap flair, I’d have a romantice romeo & juliet thing going where the daughter of one family is in love with the son of the other family, a revelation which causes the decades old feud to re-ignite.    I’d cast it with a combonation of veteran soap actors and hunky newcomers.

    A (well-written and directed) drama about a “porn family” starring Connie Britton as the matriarch.

    It’s a hell of a lot less weird and gross than it sounds.

    There are so many different ways I can see that show being promoted and covered (“Britton Bares All”). Sounds a bit like Boogie Nights the TV show.

    A darker, dramatic version of Entourage.  More about the pitfalls of fame and more the desire for fame, from the perspective someone trying to break in and the amount of themself the give up in tiny increments to achieve this goal.  I’ve witnessed the (d)evolution a lot in the ten years I have been in this city and think with someone expetional at the helm it could be appointment viewing.  My problem with Entourage was always how light it was but I liked the idea.  And I would like to see it from the perspective of not just actors, but writers, musicians, dancers.  It would be more of an ensemble.  That’s something I have tinkered with for a while.

    You stole my phrase. I should charge for that.

    I like what you had to say about Entourage – that was the reason I didn’t like watching it.

    I’ve been bored lately, so I’m penning a pilot for a television series that is about high school group therapy. Think of In Treatment combined with all of those table scenes there are on Community, particularly from its first season. It’s very deadpan and dialogue driven, and with a few exceptions, every episode is more or less a bottle episode. As far as tone, something like The Thick of It with a hint of Louie.

    So, assuming that were flawlessly brought to life, that would be my perfect show (somewhat literally.)

    A show when three witches realizing that magic world is falling apart because of the Queen, so they go for ‘real’ world because only one thing could help they.

    starring Marcia Cross, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Connie Britton as the Witches and Angela Lansbury as the Witch Queen, writing by Jason Katims and airing in HBO.

    Yeah, sounds silly but I would love have a show about witches =~
