Would You Watch This New Fall TV Show? Please??

Which is the real plot?

A. Whatever Michael Holt asks for, he gets…delivered from a benevolent Santa figure in colorful packages, at work, at home, and even on dates! Michael tries to use his gifts for good, while wrestling with baffled investigators and normal human greed.

B. Math geniuses, piano prodigies, doctors…The world loves its supertalented men. But what if one man’s gift was less socially acceptable? Michael Holt is a world-class mime, whose talent alienates him from a world that shuns quiet expression.

C. Michael Holt is a successful doctor who lives a life of luxury thanks to his powerful and wealthy patients, but his ordered world is rocked when his dead ex-wife, an idealistic free-clinic doctor and the love of his life, mysteriously appears to him.

See the answer on the next page…

    Well, I missed one — A Gifted Man — badly. I thought your plotline about a secret Santa sounded more entertaining than the lame-o one that turned out to be true. Got the others, though, largely because I know a hackneyed TV plotline when I see one (or, at least, 3 out of 4 times when I see one). Agree, however, that these posters aren’t advertising and they certainly don’t approach being post-advertising. Not sure what they are.

    No challenge from me, I completely agree.  Enjoyed the post!

    As consumers, we don’t want predictable plot lines and generic posters, we want new and original ideas – both in terms of advertising and in terms of the show itself. The fact that you could identify these plot lines based on your own preconceptions, not the posters themselves, shows that they aren’t doing their job of engaging consumers!
