My Choice

An Abortion Clinic sets up shop in Topeka, Kansas. Little do they realize their next door neighbors are the Westboro Baptist Church. Hilarity ensues.

Maid in Heaven

A sassy Baptist African-American woman is hired as the maid in a large Catholic church rectory that houses an old grumpy white priest, a slightly less older bishop who just happens to live there, and a young Latino priest. Think about stuff like she accidentally uses communion wafers to make a pie; she accidentally washes their white vestments with something red and they're all pink now; she accidentally serves meat on a Lenten Friday; she accidentally overhears a priest and young boy building a model car and think's they're having sex ("That doesn't go there! It's too big!").

THAT is a brilliant idea for a pilot!

We need a real-life "EdTV" or "Truman Show"- just follow one guy around on camera live, with no editing.
I think FX came the closest with Todd TV

Damn, I have a great idea, but I don't have time to make a video, etc.
