CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #594



I’m developing a new sitcom about a guy who was raised in wealth and privilege by a cold, distant mother and a racist, moneygrubbing father. In a series of flashbacks we learn that the guy’s entire adult life has been maniacally devoted to profit, prestige and sex. No amount of money, attention and orgasms could fill his dark, empty soul. Catching up to him in present time, we’re treated to a fun-filled peek at a man who is completely lacking in moral boundaries, principles, truth and love. What he does have though, and here’s where the show might get a little silly, is an uncanny knack for sensing people’s fears and exploiting them to his favor (in the pilot episode we get to see him use this ability to gain unimaginable power). Now I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “How can this possibly be funny?” Not to worry. My hope is to find belly laughs in his golf game, which he cheats at, and the people around him, all of whom know right from wrong, but are utterly lacking in common decency and courage. I haven’t settled on a title yet, but I’m playing around with calling it, “Traitor Traitor, Hater Baiter!” (The exclamation point is just to jazz it up, add some energy.)
