Drive-By Hotting

Hey, here’s someone you all haven’t heard about in a while.

Well never fear, mah babydoll Donal hasn’t been bored since “Grounded for Life” was cancelled last year. He currently has a movie out in theaters (The Groomsmen, also starring Ed Burns and John Leguizamo), he wrote, directed, and shopped around to film festivals his very own indie flick (Tennis, Anyone?), and best of all he has a NEW TV SERIES set to debut on ABC on Oct. 17! Cue up your Tivos, bitches, I want this show to get good ratings.

The show is a comedy (of course), and it used to be called “Let’s Rob Mick Jagger.” The concept is: a bunch of working-class losers see Jagger showing off his $5k shoes or something on a “Cribs” type show, get all resentful, and cook up a scheme to rob him. (And yes, Jagger will appear in cameos as himself from time to time. He said he liked the script.) From what I’ve read, the series is going to be a continuing follow-along-with-the-plot, maybe in real-time show just like “24″. But a comedy. As far as I know, that is a first for television. Nobody ever makes continuing comedies. That Donal, always the innovator. :) Anyway, some dope at ABC changed the name to “The Knights of Prosperity”, which I think was a dumb move. “Let’s Rob Mick Jagger” was a great title; it had that “Snakes on a Plane” level of audacious simplicity. It told you everything, and it sounded cool.

No matter the title, it sounds interesting and potentially very entertaining. A comedy with some smarts? That will require that the viewer have an attention span and more than two synapses firing? Who’da thunk we’d ever see such a thing in Ammurrica?

You GO, baby!
