I've Got an Idea

I've got an idea for a tv show. It would be called Bum the Coworker. It's about this character who works in an office by day and is a raging lunatic vagrant by night. He's like a super hero, see. Except instead of his hidden identity being that of a super hero, it's that of a schizo vagrant. Picture the teaser: Slightly overweight, late 30s average office guy walking in a cubicle farm, back to his box after lunch. Says hello to various boring co-workers. Jump to black screen. White text appears: Matt Stonefield works in an office just like yours. Like everybody else. But he's not like you. Jump to night-street scene with Bum-Matt yelling and fighting another person. Garbage is strewn all over and around a garbage can. Bum-Matt is yelling in a hoarse voice: "Get outta here dickwad, she's my princess. My precious princess. Leave us alone or I'll fuck your last good tooth outta your mouth." Jump to office meeting room. Office-Matt is paying attention to some Powerpoint presentation. Jump to alleyway scene where Bum-Matt is loudly and coarsely protesting at getting violently beat up by cops. Fade out as protesting turns to tearful pleading. Blur in to dirty sidewalk curb and road. Dirty water mixed with blood slowly trickles through. In the background, you can hear light weeping mixed with vomiting. Text on screen slowly appears, one line at a time: "Bum the Coworker Coming September 14th Only on AMC TV Story Matters Here" -30- I think I have a winner!

Let's do it. Luckily, no one reads this blog so your idea is pretty safe.
