BRITNEY: The Replacements Anthony Durante, Linda Nareski, Stefanie Phillips, Stephanie Ciccone NEU Winter Term 2007, LDR3310: Leading Teams Hugh McGill, 31 March 2007 The Reality of Fame and Shame Production Launch Proposal by:
INTRODUCTION Show Premise … what could possibly go wrong?
This is the saga of a multi-platinum recording star and Hollywood A list struggling with her fame and the shame associated with living life in the public eye.
This show is based on the precept that Britney is just a good ‘ole Southern girl trying to get back to her roots .
The audience demographics is comprised of anyone between the ages of 13 to 45 (the MTV generation) who is amazed at Britney’s talent… and her talent for getting into trouble... people who have an interest and fascination in celebrity, fame, and the turmoil associated with that type of lifestyle.
Britney will have to look beyond herself and look to the help of her teammates to help her win challenges… and win back the normalcy of what her life once was.
People from her past will visit her and stay with her in this “Surreal Life” setting… LDR3310 Style .
People will tune in to predict whether or not she will make it to the next week: this is a definitely a ‘water cooler’ show in the making.
Viewers will be able to text message via cell phone who they thought should have won the challenges: let the games begin…
Britney, K-Fed and their teammates must tackle a military-style obstacle course that challenges both the mind and body with climbing walls, puzzles and other team-oriented tasks (white tank tops and bandanas optional)
This challenge works on the Latin meaning of team: “to pull”
“ A group of individuals is not a team unless they pull together to reach a common goal.” (Huszczo, 63)
The teams will need to pull together to overcome the obstacles
The teams will need to set goals and work together to overcome the course
… good thing K-Fed has that singing career as a back-up!
A NIGHT WITH PARIS Like mom always said, “Put on clean underwear before you leave the house…” It’s all fun and games until you see your picture in the tabloids…
When Paris was called for the show, she said, “Sure, that sounds hot.”
Brit’s new buddy may be fun out in the clubs, but what is their friendship doing to influence Britney?
Is Paris’ partying ways good for Britney as a parent and role model?
Where are the kids?!
Can Britney find a balance between a social life and a responsible home life?
Take acting classes to effectively capture the attention of the audience instead of resorting to shock-behavior
Work together on song which will be sold at local music retailers to help fund the education of young men and women about homosexuality and bisexuality.
The group will head out on a mini-tour at select cities.
Britney and Madonna will be the headliners.
The other remaining members will be the “roadies”.
All members will be responsible for all details of the tour: set-up, tear down, ticket sales, and living together on the tour bus.
Work along side Madonna to plan, produce and perform on a show which will feature the cast members of this program.
The show will combine the lessons learned in the challenges of previous episodes and will allow each member an opportunity to perform and reflect on the leadership and teamwork skills learned during the season.
IS IT THE ‘BABY BLUES’? Our resident therapist will be none other than Brooke Shields… Only time and our audience will tell…
