I don't have the budget to make a TV show where the hero solves impossible problems every week, and besides, that show has been done. Do we really need another Macgyver?
I'm going to create a show where the hero takes tiny obstacles, and by combining his vast lack of emotional intelligence with his unsurpassed logistical marplottery, cobbles them into towering crises.
In the pilot, he loses his keys and the whole family's Saturday morning is ruined, until he finds them, hanging from the basement door.
In Episode Two, he "realizes" (incorrectly) that he can't go to his daughter's school play, because he has an immovable meeting; chaos and tears ensue, until a last-gasp recheck of the calendar saves the day.
In Episode Three, the string on his Weed Eater gets short, and so he decides it must have run out, and goes to the hardware store three times in search for the right colored string (because each time he gets to the store he forgets what color it is), only to discover upon opening the Round Black Thing That Holds The String™ that there is plenty of string already inside there, and it just needs to be pulled out.
And so on!
You never have to worry about running out of plots, because they come to me with the frequency and spontaneity of farts.
What do you think?!
