REVERSE I SURRENDER MEME

- YOU: comment to this post with a TV show concept. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...) Be as detailed as you like.
- I: will create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them, and add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that I like.

Please give me some ideas? I'm in the mood. No more this round, apologies.

Oh, this sounds fun!

All right, it's a Cheers-style comedy set in a bar...in a fantasy world. A regular cast of oddballs and the long-suffering bartender(s) come together to discuss their lives in [fantasyland], presumably skewering second-world fantasy tropes on occasion. Maybe there's some political satire, too, idk. There's at least one romance, and there's one or two characters the show is ostensibly "about," but everyone gets pretty equal billing. (Cheers, for example, had Sam and Diane for a couple and Sam as something approaching a "main" character.) The writing is sharp and funny, so even though it's made up mostly of bottle episodes, it never feels boring.

...And then Fox cancels it after four episodes, probably, but if you'd prefer, you can imagine it as a runaway hit. o/

She's a lesbian economist from Missouri, he's the owner of a travelling antiques shop. Together, they fight crime. But mostly they bake cupcakes.

(A little too out there?)

Creepin' in to add, WHY DOES THIS NOT EXIST? And why did I not realize it needed to until now?!

The inverse of "Community." A drama centered around professors at an elite university, a diverse group from different disciplines, different levels (instructor -> full professor), gender, sexuality, background, etc. but they socialize together, sometimes not entirely because they want to (maybe on some committee together?) and there's friction and whatnot, because that's how dramas work :)

Courtesy of [personal profile] recessional on the subject of Charlemagne: the story of the thug Big Karl who becomes king à la Merlin but Darker and Edgier, so more like Blackadder then.
