Life and Other Discomforts
Ideas For Television Shows, that are quite unlikely to ever get picked up, really. Shame.
The Pitch: Ashton Kutcher travels through the U.S. visiting different cities and their unsuspecting inhabitants. In a fashion similar to that of Kutcher's previous series Punk'd, the presenter would surprise random women by punching them in the crotch whilst yelling the programme's catchphrase: "You've Been Cunted!" Needless to say, the name of the show would be spelt with the iconic apostrophe that made Kutcher's seminal masterwork such an international success.
Name of the Show: Cunt'd! (Pronounced "Cunted!")
The Pitch: A special episode of Wife Swap involving O.J. Simpson and some couple. Some poor fella spends a week in a damp crypt in a cemetery in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, his wife has been raped and murdered by a man whose only redeeming quality was a small role in the Naked Gun series. On the last day of the exchange, O.J. denies all charges repeatedly saying: "I didn't do it... but if I had..."
Name of the Show: Wife Swab
The Pitch: A Christmas Edition of Come Dine With Me, featuring Beth Ditto.
Name of the Show: The Huge L-Word
