The Tossed Family Salad
My idea is a comedy TV show— just like Modern Family— called The Tossed Family Salad.
This comedy, depicts how the American society has been changing and how families are facing those changes regarding socio-cultural, economic and technological topics.
The Tossed Family Salad will have a single camera setup with a running time around 22 minutes.
This comedy is located in New York City and based on local issues. It will have three families. The characters have a multicultural background and their usually will talk directly into the camera. As we all know, New York City is the most multicultural diverse place in the United States. My audience is broader including middle class people with a different cultural background: Americans, Hispanics, Asian and African-Americans, and their ages range are from 18 to 49. My first six topics will be presented in mockumentary style.
Also, It will have three different sets: a living room, a kitchen and a bedroom. I will use fresh and dramatic colors like blue, green, yellow and Merlot red.
Episode 1. Gun Control: Presents a mother teaching her kids how to shoot and kill people (video games violence and how it desensitizes people)
Episode 2. Emergency-preparedness (to present how a city without an emergency-preparedness plan can hurt a community)
Episode 3. Homeless (in process)
Episode 4. Social Networks (Mother and son, just texting all the time, even when they are eating, however they use Skype and facebook to talk with a deployed American Soldier)
Episode 5. Abortion until 24 months (A pregnant teenager doesn’t want a baby.She realized that she can abort in NYC until 24 months, but she doesn’t have any excuse or serious health condition).
Episode 6. Wowen waiting longer to have kids (in process)
