TV Show Idea – Pimp Your Tunes

Everybody is pitching TV shows these days, so I thought I’d share my idea for a killer TV show with a decidedly audiophile bent to it. HGTV, I’m gonna be home all day tomorrow waiting for your call…

AR-pimp6.jpgThe Pitch

Every week an unsuspecting audiophile gets a visit from the
Pimp-Your-Tunes gang consisting of a member of the Boston Audio Society
(rotating guest slot) Harry Pearson, Dr. Floyd Toole, and Michael Fremer. They
have a budget of $100,000 to spend tricking out an audiophile’s room.

Show Time Layout

Intro home system and victim – 5 min

Expert walk through – capture their response to the system – 5

Experts make suggestions and the victim chooses one – 10 min

The reveal – 5 min

The Wrap

Although this is a how-to show it will have a strong comic
element as the experts deliver advice that runs in completely opposite
directions. With Lots of opportunities for drama as the experts cross
intellectual swords while the victim looks on helplessly while trying to figure
out who’s advice is best. When the upgrade candidate finally decides on one of
the expert’s suggestions, expect looks of consternation and protestations from
the losers.

Is this a natural for HGTV or what?
