for starters, it would have to be on cable, i.e. HBO, Showtime, Starz, etc. simple premise:
Atheist person living in a relatively urban/suburban setting, preferably in the deep South. i'm thinking Atlanta. he/she should be relatively young, perhaps late 20's or early 30's. the show depicts the exploits of the protagonist, who is a normal, not combative, Atheist and his/her constant interactions with Theists. many interactions may be visual and vocal, while others can be audible thoughts. ideally, this should be a comedy, satirising the Religious, while ultimately demonstrating the frustrations of an Atheist living in a religious world.
i'm no writer, and my ideas aren't exactly flushed out, but i would love some people to piggyback this (and i can take all the credit!) and add some new thoughts. there are countless situations that would be hilarious, from scenes with coworkers to visits to church's for funerals, weddings, etc. not only would this be an entertaining show, it would be informative and provacative. plus, i don't think an Atheist has ever really been portrayed on TV, at least not where it's a central part of their character (Dexter's Atheism is barely a backstory).
so, what do you think?
