Fake TV Show Meme: Part the First 
9th-Feb-2010 04:08 pm
So, this was the meme:
1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.

I hadn't commented on anyone's post, but it eventually occurred to me I wanted to do so, so I asked Twitter to help... before realising that miss_s_b had already gvien me a prompt back in June, when she said I should write Lesbian Vampire Killers the way it ought to be done - with lesbians who kill vampires.

And so:

THE PROMPT: Lesbians who are vampire killers.

TYPE: BBC series of  a two hour pilot and six hour-long episodes per season.

RATING: 18, for horror elements and rampant gayness.

OPENING THEME: Not a Pretty Girl – Ani DiFranco

CLOSING THEME: Wuthering Heights – China Drum


SYNOPSIS: Kit and Nadia are a perfectly ordinary young couple who aren't quite sure what they want in life. They've been together a few years and there have been ups and downs along the way, and recently it's been mostly downs – there's a big elephant in that room but neither of them talk about what happened two months ago, to anyone.

Then, one day, Nadia meets a man who nearly steers her away, and in the course of getting back together, the two girls find a new purpose in life they'd never dreamed of.

Similarities to a certain successful American TV show are entirely deliberate. Collapse )

I''ll write it up on necronomijon though, if you don't mind?

I don't mind at all.

Two siblings discover that they may have a third out there somewhere. Their investigation leads to the discovery of a whole world they never imagined would exist.

I would watch this SO. HARD.

This...hits so many of my damn buttons, it's not funny. I WANT THIS SHOW.
10th-Feb-2010 11:45 am (UTC)
Your buttons overlap a lot with my buttons, Ashie.

I want to RP these characters. Dammit.

I know nothing about you, so this might be a disaster!

But, I want to see werewolves, vampires and other supernatural elements in the Old West.

Heh - this is a great meme! I'd watch this show, definitely - I'm kind of crushed that it doesn't really exist. That Marc Warren ep has "instant classic" written all over it. :-D

I surrender!

I have no idea wht kind of thing you like, so here goes:

When an apparent crash knocks out every passenger (and driver) on an underground train, they awake to find themselves in a post-apocalyptic world tat may or may not be their own. Did whatever caused the crash also wipe out humanity, or is there something else going on?

I'm not sure I understand the concept of not having a crush on Aidan Turner. The idea doesn't compute to me.

And I can't cast Sendhil Ramamurphy in any role that requires looking like he knows what he's talking about. That's been ruined for me.

Happy birthday!

Off topic, I know, but... did you find it as hard as I am to find actors to "play" these parts?
13th-Feb-2010 06:41 pm (UTC)
I really did! I mean, once I had parts. In the case of Leo, I created the part for the actor, and Joanna is very much Stephanie Cole's type so it wasn't hard. but for Kit? Oh my god.
15th-Feb-2010 09:55 pm (UTC)
Here from miss_s_b, and OMG this show is my new favourite show. It must be made to exist.
23rd-Feb-2010 12:06 am (UTC)
I don't know how I missed this post the first time but I adore it. Especially, yes, Joanna. And I'm a sucker for Arthurian mythology in places you wouldn't expect it.

May I surrender? Is surrender still an option?

Ha! And I missed this comment because notifications are broken and it never occurred to me to check a second page.


Alright, here goes. Take the plot of any Shakespearean play you desire - except the tempest - and translate it to a high fantasy or hard sf setting of your choice.

Unquestionably consider that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest factor to bear in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider issues that they plainly don't realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing with no need side effect , other folks could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks!
