Open Mic Day on BnB... building the perfect TV show


I'm trying to do some thangz. Okay multiple tasks requiring masterful juggling on my part. So no post today. But let's play a little game. If we were building a TV show (one that we would actually watch) based loosely on BougieLand, what would it look like? Is it more Moonlighting or Mad Men? Romance? Suspense? Ensemble cast? Place it at work or at home? East Coast, West Coast, Southern City? No idea too big, no idea too small - what ya got?

my tv show would have the depth of Lost. the sexuality and brashness of True Blood and the realness of The Wire. Just so happens these are my 3 all time favorite television shows.

Realness of the Wire great idea @taut_7 BUT it should be a southern city...with a "Dallas" soap twist

Drama or sitcom?
Can we cast Idris as... anything?!
Why not set it in Dallas - works for me.
Who gets to play Riley?

The whole first season could just be your BougieTales, the whole second season could be the stories from Ask a Bougie Chick. That's a hit.

Drama but with some good comedy/sarcasm.
Idris representing the fellas of BougieLand.
Dallas the Remix?
Riley as Riley.

Just tell me when to set my DVR!

I was going to try and come up with something, but after chili, BBQ and a Corona, all I can think about is going to sleep!

Neither Moonlighting nor Mad Men, I'd choose more like a post Different World life 10-15 years after college. Topics woud be based around: still single, married, divorced, parenting, career, returning to school, stress, religions, etc. Ensemble cast of mixed cultural heritage, diverse socioeconomic classes, based in Houston, Dallas, Chicago, and or DC.

don't want anymore comedies. I want a drama. A nice, soapy drama, full of Black folks from the entire economic spectrum.

you know, I wouldn't even be interested in a long term tv show. I would even settle for the equivalent of a telenovela. there are so many Black authors out there who have written 'series' that have an audience. I would love for one of those series to come to the small screen.

A BnB sitcom would totally rock!

Yes! A Black Knots Landing would rock.
