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

And the correct answer is…

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. (CBS, Fridays, 8/7c)

 

Which is the real plot?

A. Emily Thorne and her family were cast out of the Hamptons after something bad happened to ruin her family and their reputation. Now Emily is back as a new girl, and no one suspects her secret agenda of revenge.

B. Botanist Emily Thorne sells poisonous flowers that create embarrassing side effects for anyone who receives them. But when one of her clients turns up dead, she wonders if someone is about to get the ultimate revenge…on her.

C. It’s Project Runway meets Poison Ivy when runway dressmaker Emily Thorne, after losing a record-setting 300 lbs on a reality-show, returns with bold new angry, violent, “anti-fashion” designs that catch fire with America’s jobless youth.

    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.

    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!
