RE: Idea For New Television Series

I just had a great idea for a new television series. I think it could be a sitcom, drama, or even one of those "dramedies" that are so popular with the kids these days. Let me break down the general premise for you, and then I will outline a few of the directions in which I think the show could go: It's called "Cross My Arms(And Hope To Deny)", and our main character is, get this, a bouncer/doorman at at the hippest club in the city !! I tell you, it can't miss. It's a little bit "Roadhouse" a little bit "54", with just a touch of "Honey". I mean, the possibilities are endless...He could be an ex-cop, busted off the force by the corrupt"powers-that-be" and he solves crimes from his spot at the velvet rope. Or, he could be a heartbroken widower with three kids, just looking for love and trying to raise the kids right in this topsy turvy world...Or, get this, it could be a woman, and she could be a mermaid, who has been granted five years on land to discover the identity of the evil raver who killed her mother, or he/she could be a sage older veteran of the club scene, dispensing advice on love and life to the young, hip denizens of the club...Do you see what I mean? It could go almost anywhere...Crime drama/dramedy, family drama, lovelorn sitcom, supernatural drama...Now, casting...Now, that is where it gets tricky, simply because there are so many directions in which to go...We could go young and hip, with an Elijah Wood or perhaps a Beyonce, or we could go the "comeback route" with an Emilio Estevez or Kelsey Grammer or Molly Ringwald, or we could cast Brian Dennehey or Fred Dryer or Erin Grey(Didn't you just LOVE her in Buck Rogers and Silver Spoons ?)...AND, think about the potential for guest stars !! All the hip musicians could play the club, hot comics could play the club, celebrities from all walks of fame could frequent the club...Paris Hilton,Al Roker,Lindsey Lohan, Carrot Top,that creepy little girl from War Of The Worlds and perhaps even Don Rickles... And best of all, we could set the club in beautiful downtown Butte, Montana...I can even see the poster, the main character standing behind a red(or purple) velvet rope, clipboard in one hand, arms crossed across his(or her) chest, with a knowing grin, and maybe even a wink...Oh, man...I'm gonna work up a budget, you get on the phone to Brian Dennehey !

It would be just like Love Boat. Only you could call it Love Butte.
