We live in uncertain times my friends. A writers strike threatens to shut down production on all your favorite script as early as tomorrow. Here's the latest on the dispute:http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-strike1nov01,0,1525738.story?coll=la-home-center
There is a solution to this conflict Hollywood producers....ME. I would be more than happy to revisit some classic television shows with my own twist.....dirt cheap too. For instance...I'd reimagine the Love Boat as The Love Boat 2399. Set in the future, the Pacific Princess is now taking its guests for romantic trips throughout the galaxy. The ships captain has an uncanny resemblance to Dr. Zoidberg from Futurama. Again Alice would feature Linda Lavin returning to her role as Alice Whatsherface but instead of working as a waitress at Mel's Diner she owns it. Mel is long since dead (as is Flo, an AIDS victim) but Vera is still around. She's a homeless person who comes into Alice's Restaurant (as its now known) to provide comic relief. Another Day at a Time features the return of Bonnie Franklin to series television as divorcee Ann Romano who is now retiree Ann Romano. This sitcom is set in a nursing home for gays and lesbians in Florida where Mizz Romano is joined by Schneider, who doesn't realize everyone in the home is gay.
I'd also take advantage of my friends and exploit their lives on the small screen...For instance...there would be Unky Rory P.I. in which our hero solves crimes by day and designs Catholic school girl uniforms by night (or maybe the other way around). TFO in da House! stars our beloved TFO as a former hockey player who opens his home to some wayward black children. Finally O.M.O.M. & the MILF's stars the King of Metal in a modern day variety show broadcasting live from MidOhio's version of the Playboy Mansion, the Beer Cave. The house band would be none other than American Dog.
Honestly, are my shows really any dumber than Kid Nation or Are You Smarter than my Penis?
