The tv/movie story idea pitch thread
 
Pitch your ideas.

I'd like to see a period drama series that spans the whole decade of the 1970's about the rise and fall of a Rock band , like Almost Famous meets Mad Men.

I'd like to see a telenovela about the miserable lives of central floridians and how they cope with an impending Four Loko ban. Sort of like Jersey Shore meets The Twilight Zone.

I would watch.
I can't tell if you're being serious or not but something sorta like that done Harmony Korine-esque would be awesome.
The theme song would be Against Me's We Laugh At Danger (And Break All The Rules).

Coincidentally the next Korine movie actually takes place in my city.

A show about Wake Up's real life.

This but with 80's punk or 90's emo is the TV show that I would love to see but I know will probably never happen.

It was a rough time for a lot of people around here.

To Catfish A Predator, a girl thinks she meets a 16 year old guy who's in a band because of course he is, turns out he's fat and old and a dad yuck

It's 2016 and the end of the world. Jesus returns to earth, first appearing to a reluctant young male Palestinian terrorist, pressured by his family, about to suicide bomb a temple. Christ explains that he is the chosen one, to help him warn the world of their impending doom and need to repent. Christ is a little bit darker-skinned than often depicted and is a skilled communicator, even to a modern audience.

They start locally and eventually decide that the best way to broadcast their message to the most people in time for the apocalypse is to travel to Hollywood. Hilarity naturally ensues. They preach to various people in various situations along the way, and learn, as the audience does, that the people you'd expect aren't always the ones most receptive to Christ's message.

Christ eventually manages to get his time on international TV in some way, and there's a powerful summarizing speech, as the camera cuts to different people around the world, some of whom we saw earlier, and their reactions. The resolution is open-ended.

A scripted, lower budget comedy about a group of teens-twentysomethings who work at a crappy, rundown movie theater. They get into shananigans with each other and customers. Stuff like dealing with kids sneaking into rated R movies, one of the guys selling movie snacks in a trench coat much cheaper than the concession bar. Maybe an episode dealing with one of the employees being racist and not letting black people into a horror movie.

This has almost the exact feel of Party Down meets The League, I realize. But I think it might be kind of fun.

Alot of war movies that should be made.
Biopic about legendary marine corp sniper Carlos Hathcock
Biopic about the most decorated marine in american history Gen. Smedley Butler who famously said "War is a racket"
Film about former Catholic priest and Army Chaplain Charles Liteky who received the Medal Of Honor in Vietnam and later left the priesthood to become an anti war/social justice activist and is the only person ever to renounce and give back their Medal Of Honor.
A big budget Korean War "band of brothers style" mini series would be great.

I've always thought an idea sort of like this but set in a nursing home /assisted living facility would make a great comedy.
