Don’t you want to write a show about a man who keeps sending women pictures of his penis and also keeps running for public office? Isn’t that fascinating? There must have been so many people who have told him that he can do one or the other but not both, and yet he keeps doing both!
Don’t you want to write a show about a guy who lets his family believe he’s dead for 17 years, only to show up out of the blue and screw up their life insurance settlement? I had a relative who did something similar, but she was in the witness protection program. This guy just didn’t want to admit he was gay. Is he a bigamist? Presumably he married his husband after he was declared dead. Is being declared dead as good as divorce? There are so many stories here!
Try telling me there’s not a show about Edward Snowden, contrasted with the story of a quiet inside-man at the NSA, both trying to protect the United States but with vastly different ideas on what that means and strategies to do it. Hell, there’s at least two shows because this could be a drama or a sitcom.
So what are you working on?
