Fractured Fairytales.

Perhaps attempting to break into screenwriting, and having noted a trend in popular entertainment, my roomie pitches fresh reboots of even more classic television series.

If they were popular the first time around, imagine how good they'll be when injected with some arch humor and modern sensibilities!

I look forward to Guantanamo's Heros followed by F-Troop Reloaded.

Can't do any worse than Charlie's Angels and Hawaii Five-O!

Somewhere, a heretofore unknown screenwriter is probably shopping around a reboot of "Car 54 Where Are You?".

Rabbit,

Yea, and he'll probably make it so gritty and sexualized that you can't watch it with your kids in the room... Either that, or so campy that you want to puke.

How about "I Dream of Jeannie"? An Iraqi War vet brings home an... UNUSUAL war bride. Both have to reenter a society that isn't particularly comfortable with either. Hilarity ensues.

AZ you will be kicking yourself for not developing that concept when it airs in 2013

I miss My Favorite Martian. Maybe this time around it could be My Favorite South Korean.

How about Hazel Deux? The great-grand-daughter of the Baxter family's maid finds her career in international banking is bust, and goes to work as a live-in maid for the the family of a Wal-Mart People Greeter.

Ed Sullivan's show was a showcase for new talent and old favorites. And it was disciplined. Maybe Steve Harvey could be enticed.

Is it too soon for Roseanne's grandkids to center a comedy?
