I used to think about ways to make my experiences working in psych hospitals into a screen play for a tv show "dramadie-com". But it was always too depressing to be effective as a drama, and too twisted to be funny to anyone but the souls who have lived it...Beside that, it's been done...over and over again, in film and TV and cable TV, and while it's been fun to watch, they just don't get it.
So why not a show about an electrician and his journeyman? The possibilties are endless. First, we have to have a premise...a basic storyline. Oh...let's see, a crew of contractors at a large state run university. Check. Next, the differences between the feral-like contractors and the state employees...eerily similar, yet fundamentally disparate...Check.
Mayhem insues, and along the way we learn to love each other...has'nt happened yet.
Now the cast...in pairs. A journeyman and his apprentice, a crew. Times 6...12 people on a journey to provide power to an institution of higher learning, a place with a 3 second rule, full of men who can't count to 3 when "ham" is involved.
Cast shots tomorrow...
