the great sitcom pitch... inaugural entry

We're going to have a new feature on this blog...the Great Sitcom Pitch! It all started with my brother's idea for an original new television sitcom. After several weeks, and a bunch more pitches, we're bringing this to the Internets. Big time TV execs reading this, please contact us if you'd like to make one of these happen. So without further ado... I'll give it up to...

Guest Blogger Rusty Buehler:

First of all, let me just say I'm so excited to be a guest blogger. If I can't keep up with a blog regularly, there's nothing better than to sit down and bang out a few thoughts while somebody awesome like my sister does the heavy lifting.

SO! TV pitch of the week! I'm going to start with the one that started it all...

(Note: For maximum effect, you really gotta shout it out loud, pronouncing 'rose,' like the kind of wine you order.)

NO WAY ROSE! is a half hour multicam sitcom on ABC about a plucky young woman named Rose, who owns her own winery in Napa Valley. But... here's the twist... she's a recovering alcoholic! Tune in each week to find out what shenanigans Rose is getting herself into. With the help of her sassy retired Mother, Rose leaves no grapeleaf unturned!

Possible casting... Zooey Deschenel or Natasha Lyonne as Rose, and Lainie Kazan or Jan Hooks as her Mom. Who do YOU want to see as Rose?

I think this is a great idea for a sitcom, and would fit in nicely for our fall season, but because it is limited to ABC I don't think I can take this any further.
