Not altogether dissimilar from Holland’s “Smartest Man in the Room” competition, I give you:

The League of Weird Guys Who Solve Mysteries, coming this fall on ABC!

I am basically envisioning it like this:  Richard Castle gets uses all of his money to hire Gregory House, Patrick Jane, Adrian Monk, and Det. Robert Goren.  They all live in a big house together with their weird personality quirks, and solve otherwise insolvable mysteries.

I imagine that they also have a big van that they drive around in, and that House torments Monk incessantly.

It is “character-driven.”

  1. Jeff Holland says:

    Vans do work better – y’know, from a dramatic perspective – if they are driven by characters.

    Also from a “making the van go” perspective.

  2. Hsiang says:

    I like it, but it needs more talking dog.

  3. Maureen says:

    Castle tries to start up an in-house poker game, to which House invites Wilson, who ends up winning money from Jane. Monk demands his own bathroom, and House puts an alligator in his bathtub. Eventually they get visited by the ghost of Sherlock Holmes, who asks Castle why he reminds him of ants.

    I think this series has real potential, actually.
