Sitcom Title
Paulo Posted: Tue Jul 19 05:17:10 2005 Post | Quote in Reply  
  Hello all. Myself and Mat_J have somehow managed to get a Sitcom Pilot we wrote into production, its going to be shown to four British TV Channels and also we're going to try and flog it world wide.

The problem is: The Title.

In a nutshell its about two people who work in insurance and one American guy whose and Art Teacher in Britain. (sounds hilarious doesn't it) Its written kind of like Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm and we need a list of names to show the producers next week, anything between one and three words, post it and if its any good we'lll put it on the list, our list is as follows:

Underwritten
Just About Life
That Life
Such Is Life
Good Grief

Thats all I can remember, Mat_J probably has more on his notepad i've forgotten.

  If you're going with cheesy titles like that I'm sure people can come up with tons more.

The first thing I'm pulling out of my ass on the fly within the next 4 seconds:



Rest Assured

And yeah, I also think it's pretty cool. Hope it works out.

  You're going to tell us when we can watch it, aren't you?!

Congrats. I am impressed (a veritable rarity these days). Grin.

  The title?

Yeah, I dunnow, I think that the title should at least have *something* to do with the program, and there are enough programs out there with lame titles.

Also, I think that a title is more important than you'd think. You have to keep in mind that a title is an important way to draw people who aren't familiar with the series to it.

That's why you need something "clever" in my opinion. "Rest Insured" (for example) would make people think twice in a split second, and it has a meaning in more than one way, so it would get them thinking and especially your target audience would probably be more interested than with a title like "just about life" or "good grief". No offence though, opinions vary, but that's just how I'd react when somebody told me about a program they like.

  To attract a larger audience, i'd suggest you put more sex in the title.

I'll leave it at that, there are enough people here who can give suggestions :)

  Thank you for all your suggestions, we'll put the less wordy ones on the list to show our producers.

The pilot starts filming sometime in December or January, so I can't imagine any series if its picked up will get made for at least a year sadly so I must continue to work shite jobs until then!

It was elementary really, Paulie has been working on a pilot for a crumby sitcom as a cameraman and when everyone realised it was shit and jumped ship he put ours under the nose of some of the producer type guys.
