10 Showrunners. Locked In a Cabin. Told to Create The Ultimate TV Show. This Will End Well [VIDEO]


Leigh Lahav, she of the five stages of fangirl grief and the fangirl meeting, imagines what it would be like if some of the best (your mileage may vary) showrunners/writers in the biz were kidnapped, spirited away to a cabin, and forced to write the best show of all time.

Spoiler: Joss Whedon, George R.R. Martin, and Steven Moffat all want to kill things.

    Hmm…Do you want to play a game?

    What is up with Larry David’s accent I really couldn’t get past it.

    Also, Jenni Konner is the showrunner of Girls! Her twitter account is great.

    Where was Jane Espenson? How could you leave her out of this?

    The Daily Show did this when Steve Carrell and Stephen Colbert were still on the show.

    Why was Larry David… Russian? Polish? I actually can’t even tell what he’s supposed to be, but it isn’t what he actually is.

    “Let’s cut their dicks off first!” Funny, but did anyone really care about Theon Greyjoy?

  • Nat

    She’s too busy destroying shows that you used to love with other terrible writers

    Yes, because GRRM isn’t the showrunner for Gane of Thrones either.
    Technically he is not a writer of the show either but he does write the script for one episode each season and of course he was the writer on the TV show Beauty and The Beast
    Anyhow – we can’t expect a [SPOILER] knows everything about human television…

    I cared!!

  • Important Film Maker

    It has to do with Larry David not being all that hard to impersonate properly.

  • Rebecca Pahle

    YES.

    Larry David has a very distinct “voice” I guess you could say. The video has him speak in a Eastern European / Yiddish accent — which, yeah he’s Jewish, but that’s nothing close to how he sounds like. It’s just a little weird they went that route, that’s all.

    He’d have a lot of fun with this video, I think, should his Curb character watch it online. :)

    New Girl has such a distinct voice. I think Meriwether was a playwright background, which really shines in sitcom work. The writing is razor sharp, and that cast really brings it to life. Probably my favorite comedy on TV right now.

  • Diaspora

    Can’t decide if I’m disappointed or relieved to see Bryan Fuller isn’t is this….

  • Diaspora

    They cut off Theon Greyjoy’s dick? On the show?! Holy fuckbeans, was there at least context involved or was it just like ‘everyone hates you because you’re boring; CASTRATION TIME!!!’ ?

  • MrONegative

    That about sums it up. Are you sure you didn’t watch it?

  • Diaspora

    Only the first few episodes. Granted, the fraternal incest (and resulting attempted child-murder) and underage marital rape might have been a clue that some sick shit was going to go on but…..christing fuck on a stick…
