There's only so much dross that you can put up with on TV. We here at I'm With Geek aim to put a stop to that with our new feature article. Here, we find a randomly generated title for a TV series, then pitch it to the world in no more than 150 words.
Will one of our wacky ideas get picked up for syndication? You decide!
Welcome Back, Angel is a sitcom about Marcello ‘Angel’ D’Angelus, a religious man who is killed after getting caught in the crossfire at a bank robbery. When he reaches Heaven, he is told that he cannot get in and is sent to Hell. Once there, Marcello is informed that he can get into Heaven if he can perform enough good deeds and save people’s souls. He returns, not realising that The Devil has sent a demon with him to make him fail. Each episode revolves around Marcello and his Demon partner attempting to sway things in their own favour, with Marcello failing and returning to Hell at the end of each episode and The Devil proclaiming “Welcome Back, Angel!”
Clarence Odbody High is where cherubim find out what they’re made of – either they’re going to move up to the big leagues of guardian angeling, or they’ll flunk out to become low-ranking demons in Hell. Into this comes Kotter, an angel who had nearly flunked out himself, bringing jokes and inspiration to the young angels who want to get their wings. It’s wacky hijinks all the way, as they try to stay one step ahead of strict St Peter! (it’s like Welcome Back, Kotter, but with angels!)
A post-Supernatural spin-off sees Castiel waking up each week in a new host body. Every episode, he has to find his way back to Dean Winchester by any means necessary. Unfortunately, every time Dean recognises him with the words “Welcome back, angel,” Castiel passes out and wakes up in another body. Why is this happening? And can Castiel figure it out by himself? (No-one’s seen Quantum Leap in years, so we can rip it off!)
As punishment for interfering with human lives, an angel is banished from above to live amongst those below.
Upon death, after living a life of goodness, souls are redeemed for ascension – a responsibility to the people of Earth and other beings to protect and serve. Some cross the line and fall back to Earth, doomed to live amongst humankind until they too can be redeemed once more.
With only blurred memories remaining of his life as an angel, life back on Earth is unfamiliar. And 21st Century London is very different to Leonardo’s native 15th Century Italy…
David Boreanaz returns as the vampire with a soul in Welcome Back, Angel! With the world finally saved from the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness, Angel takes up a position teaching History to disadvantaged teens in downtown LA. When the students start to suspect that Angel’s knowledge of history sounds a little like first-hand accounts, the fanged teacher has to cover up his identity in increasingly wacky ways, assisted by student Finkler (iCarly’s Noah Munck), the nerdy werewolf boy who takes a shine to Angel. James Marsters also stars as renegade janitor, Spike, who is constantly trying to reveal Angel’s secret to conniving Principal Wolfram. Coming to Disney Channel this fall, Welcome Back, Angel! Is a charming vampire comedy that doesn’t suck!
Angel Williams is a girl with a dream: To be an inspiration to the world. She never knew what she wanted to do, all she knew was she wanted to change people’s lives with it, and give back to the world that had treated her so kindly. Unfortunately, Angel has some fatal flaws: She’s a huge klutz, and practically talentless. All her attempts at acting, singing, writing etc all end in horrible, embarrassing conclusions. Down on her luck and desperate for money, she finds a job working at the orphanage that raised her. The staff who looked after her know of her clumsiness and it’s no surprise to them that she creates several hi jinks with the orphans as she does her best to look after them, but from rekindling her mother-daughter relationship with one nurse in particular and feeling the love from the orphans she takes care of, Angel soon realises she’s found the perfect way to give back to the world, even if it has disastrous results!
Do any of our pitches cut the mustard?
