Dammit.

Is it really THAT difficult to come up with a new show concept? Seriously? Why don't they come ask me. I could write them an original show.

But, but what will they do with the irony??

(Plus I remember a Jennifer Saunders interview where she pointed out that Ab Fab doesn't really work as a show these days because it's so hard to actually be OTT, rather than simply realistic...)

I think the Paris Hilton idea's simply dripping with irony.

Obviously we've decided to just keeping digging that hole until we really do pop out in China. Wonder if they have any clever, witty, highly rewatchable shows we can steal, suck the joy out of, and mass market??
