1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.

THE PROMPT (via [livejournal.com profile] mercuriazs):

An urban fantasy with a detective! Private investigator or working for the city, your call. (Why yes, I am still bitterly disappointed in the DF Syfy show.)

TYPE: Hour long episodes on BBC, thirteen episodes to a season, plus Christmas special.

SYNOPSIS: A bored young Scottish woman who watches too much CSI moves into her family town house in London, and joins a PI agency in search of a little excitement. Unfortunately, within a week she is foisted off on the oldest member of the team, who is a year away from retirement and barely takes anything seriously anymore; suffers a break-in on her first night back; and discovers the house is haunted by the ghost of her long-dead and highly eccentric great-grandmother, Matilda May Harcourt.

Soon, with the grudging help of her skeptical partner, and Matilda May's uncanny genius at problem-solving, Bryony is beginning to learn the ropes and claim a few successes. But a far trickier mystery to solve is one that took place nearly thirty years ago - who killed her great-grandmother and why?

FAN REACTION: Yet another BBC attempt to fill the Doctor Who Saturday night timeslot, it's silly but watchable, and improves loads when the main action moves to the house and out of the Agency - mainly because the secondary characters get more to do.
