APRIL CHALLENGE: Create a TV Show

The old faithful is back, create a TV show. I'm going to reuse the fantastic bizarra's briefing from last year as it summarises it very well.

For this month's challenge, you can create any type of TV Show you want. it can be any genre, or any type of show, even reality. Anything goes! The above shows were linked for you to look at and use as examples in your own creation. If you have no graphic experience, your images do not have to be pretty. We just want to see who you are casting. :) Your show can be anything, a drama, a space opera, a cooking show, wherever your imagination takes you!

The Rules:
+ Give your show a name.
+ Write a 50-100 word (or more!) general synopsis of your show.

Your entry should include:
1. Characters: Create characters for your show. You can create as many, or as few, characters that you want. They can be main cast, recurring, supporting or even guest cast. Give a description of your characters and a headshot type graphic of them. (keep the graphic at about 200x200 (ish) pixels)
2. Writing: Give us more detail about the world your show is set in, and maybe an episode or two!
3. Graphics (Optional): Create graphics for your show - promotional posters, wallpapers, title cards, Polyvore-type costume sets, settings, etc - (400x400 minimum, no maximum, but please post large graphics as thumbnails)
4. Create a Fandom (optional): Create a fandom for your show. This can be in the form of fan campaigns, community names (you do not have to actually create a community, unless you wish to), Flame Wars, Charity events, fanfic, etc... go wild!
5. Anything Else: Go Wild!

Additional Info:
+ You may use any images of actors and actresses, for this challenge (candids, promo shots, movie images, etc)
+ All images must be work-safe
+ Please post your entry as a new post in this community. (Don't forget the LJ Cut if the entry is really long)
+ You may do the layout for your post in any way you wish. As long as it is easy to follow.
+ Also you can continue to build a TV show you have created in this challenge before

Some examples are:
Mutants, Murders and Mysteries - http://1-million-words.livejournal.com/1637247.html
