Bad Ideas for Bad Television Shows

By: Don Zolidis

DIRECTED BY: michael parker

Two desperate NBC executives need a new prime time show and they need it now, so they’ve turned to the general viewing public for help. A ragtag collection of would-be producers show up in droves to submit ideas for the network’s next big hit, pitching everything from a sitcom starring Jean-Paul Sartre to a singing competition in which the contestants are encouraged to sabotage each other. A zany, satirical take on the absurdity of contemporary entertainment that won’t need a canned laugh track.
