Alyssa Milano and Rebecca Gayhart play Jazzercise instructors in 1980s Santa Monica. Heather Locklear is the mean, tyrannical owner of the Jazzercise studio. She's trapped in a difficult marriage with an abusive man played by Chris Meloni, but her lug-head trainer Bo (played by Nick Lachey) is angling for her love. Gayhart's parents are wealthy Bev Hills residents (played by Tom Selleck and Shelley Long) and never have time for her, leading to her wild partying slacker ways. Milano moved to Cali from the Midwest to make it big; she's constantly auditioning but waiting for her big break. Matt LeBlanc plays her wise production assistant cousin who also lives in L.A.
Doris Roberts as the nosy busybody landlady cameos in a guest role.
OP, you are trying far too hard. You're also painfully unfunny.
I like this idea!
Can I play Alyssa's sister again?
LeBlanc is too old to play a p.a.
OP can you give the part of the nosy landlady to Patty Duke since she didn't get the role as Mary Todd Lincoln in Lincoln
With some tweaking a retro 80s sitcom (sort of in the vein of the 70s show) could be a hit!
Good Job OP!
I think with a little work...it could work on TV LAND.
I like it
I thought this was really going to happen.
I'd watch it, but you didn't need Doris Roberts. Edie McClurg would be a more inspired choice.
How about a very special episode where Tom Selleck and Matt LeBlanc spit-roast Nick Lachey.
R9 is right.
Leave Matt alone. He has the third season of Episopdes to do. One of the funnier shows around.
Funny about Matt- he was considered the weak link of the Friends cast and he is the one w/the critically acclaimed show post Friends....
And yes, to Edie!
" (Closest Thing To) Perfect" playing over a close-up of Jamie Lee Curtis' 2012-era breasts pumping together with arms akimbo.
Then a back-shot of John Travolta and his 2012-era ass stuffed into sweats as he pushes a broom away from the audience.
Then I want a cameo of Kelly LeBrock, Anthony Michael Hall, and Ilan Mitchell-Smith in their gym uniforms from "Weird Science" with Oingo Boingo playing in the background.
Save Heather for mid-season...when the ratings are falling down the sewers so she can save the damn shit!
Also I wand BIG headbands on everyone of those bitches!
I'm in the industry so I'm going to give you some notes OP. There is no way this is going to fly from your initial treatment.
Alyssa and Rebecca are way too old. You're going to have to go younger. You're probably going to have to go with someone the network has a holding with and perhaps an unknown, possibly someone with a couple of credits, but hasn't had that breakout hit yet.
Locklear is fine, but we'd have to see how she looks. Has she gained weight? Too much botox, etc. But you are playing her too young. The second Jazzercise instructor should probably be either her daughter or step daughter from a second marriage. Chris Meloni is all wrong, look for someone who was big in the 80s, whose career is not so hot right now to play this role. Andrew McCarthy, maybe Matthew Broderick if he's available and will do it for no more that $50K per episode. The husband has to be sexless and emasculated, but likeable. Probably a doofus. The object of Heather's unwanted crone/cougar advances needs to be an Ashton Kutcher (10 years ago) type. Young, dumb, full of cum and completely clueless to his hotness and Heather's come ons. Give Heather 20 something son who could be hot for the lead and build a will they or want they vibe between the two, with Heather as a constant spoiler.
Nosy neighbor should be someone who was big in television back in the day. Maybe a Linda Lavin or the chick who played Thelma on Amen, because you're going to need some color in this. Maybe, the Amen chick has a son or daughter who lives across the hall from the two lead chicks and interacts with them from time to time.
Make those changes and I will consider ordering a pilot. Not a presentation, but a full pilot. We're also going to need to see a budget breakdown, since this a period piece.
Oh, and not Bonnie Franklin, she's got pancreatic cancer and is circling the drain.
Lauren Ambrose as the sardonic receptionist.
Wrong wrong wrong r23. OP's cast with the exception of Edie McClurg over Doris Roberts.
I'm embarrassed for you OP.
Dames? That title sucks.
Feel the Burn
Alyssa Milano turns 40 in 2 weeks.
Gayeheart is 41 years old.
If you plan on selling this project to anyone except TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES, you may want to rethink your casting. Cause 18-35 year olds generally want to see themselves on screen.
Rebecca Gayheart killed a kid in L.A. when she hit him with her car and got away with a slap in the wrist i hope her pussy gets gangrene and falls off.
pretty sure Mc Steamy her druggy husband (why he got fired from Greys Anatomy, allegedly) cheats on her.
Julianne Hough (Seacrest's beard) as the midwestern aerobic instructor who wants to be an actress.
Amy Schumer (a young up-and-coming Chelsea Handle-type stand up) as her wisecracking party girl best friend/ co-worker.
Bebe Neuwirth (less messy than Locklear and she can dance) as the icy and sardonic owner of the studio (who might have a heart after all).
No abusive husband (on a three camera sitcom?!!), her love interests are her feckless but charming ex played by Judd Nelson and a younger himbo who works for her played by some younger himbo.
Nosy landlady played by Jenifer Lewis.
No P.A. cousin (too hard to integrate into the action at the studio or in their shared apartment).
The party girl's Beverly Hills parents are frequent guest stars Rick Moranis and Jennifer Coolidge.
Needs young men for the leads to play off of. One will be a loutish bachelor type, the other will be a likeable love interest-type for the midwestern one.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
