Either actual suggestions or flippant ones, does anyone have any ideas for films or TV programmes? They don't have to have titles; don't put your best ideas here (unless you want to) or they could be subject to plagiarism. I'll start us off with an (actual) idea for a film.

A gang of thespians, acting as caricatured versions of themselves (à la The Trip), are stranded together on a small island (à la Lord of the Flies) after, once they've finished filming some kind of drama (such as And Then There Were None), bad weather prevents them from returning to civilisation. A comedy, where the lack of amenities starts to turn them against each other - no murder, just drunken arguing. With Kenneth Branagh, David Tennant, Judi Dench, Gary Oldman - pretty much anyone (it's just a shame Alan Rickman is no longer with us).

Think you need Matt LeBlanc, playing a caricatured version of himself playing a caricatured version of himself in Episodes in there .

Another planet...
I think a sitcom detailing the (mis-)adventures of a group of socially awkward rail enthusiasts would have legs (or wheels?) myself... Guest star in episode one: Michael Portaloo!

I don't think you can really come up with anything better than the already existing iZombie, wherein a zombie takes a job in the medical examiner's office for a supply of brains, and uses the visions triggered by said brains to solve murders.

Seriously, this exists, and it is awesome.

Star Trek: Daedalus.
Set on a Daedalus Class starship, set after the Federation was just founded, and the Romulan War ended. It features an Andorian Captain played by Jeffrey Combs, a Tellerite Science Officer who's very sarcastic, a Vulcan Doctor who has heard of bedside manner. Also a helmswoman, an Andorian woman at comms, and an injured engineer.

Enterprise cast could appear, early encounters with Klingons & future Federation members will be common, I got 40+ stories written down already, including Kzinti encounter, Starbase 1, The mind parasite, etc.

Blackadder No. 5 - set in the 1980s with Edmund Blackadder the supervisor of a production line for computer chips. Baldrick is on the production line, and is one mistake away from being fired. Darling works on another line in the same factory, and Melchett is the CEO of the company in charge of the factory this is set in.
