I was talking with a friend tonight, and he is the creator/producer of a show. This show is about to get picked up. How cool would it be to get creator/producer credits for a tv show? I would like that.
Now, I am always thinking about the identity angle for most everything. When I was talking to my friend, I thought about how much the tv show you would create reveals so much about your identity.
When you think about it though – tons of shows have been done already. Car shows – cowboy shows – family shows – reality tv shows – how could you come up with an idea that someone might want to buy? It definitely reveals your creativity. It shows that you have some innovative thinking. A show that has been done before won’t sell – but in light of identity formation – who cares? So maybe it doesn’t sell. Maybe it’s a story that no one cares about. As long as it’s your story – it’s all good. But if you are able to create a brand new show – one that people would buy – what show would that be?
