The Hive

CHALLENGE #5: If you had your own reality show, what would it be called? What would it be about? Who would the main characters be?

* * * * * * * * * *

We live in the era of REALITY SHOWS. I have my favorites. The Real World is the show that started it all for me. I think that was way back in the late 80's. That first season had me hooked. I was convinced that it was scripted because there just couldn't be that much drama in one place, seemingly, 24 hours a day. I am already a 'people watcher' by nature so reality shows have just taken it to another level. From Biggest Loser to Basketball Wives on VH-1 and Housewives of Atlanta on Bravo. True Life on MTV and Pregnant at 16. RuPaul's Drag Race is quite entertaining. Watching it makes me feel like I'm in a room with my tranny friends. HGTV's Design Star is another fave. My all-time reality show though is PROJECT RUNWAY on Lifetime. Tim Gunn is the shizzz! Oh -- I also like What Not To Wear.

If I had a reality show it would be called

THE HIVE would star ten secretaries (administrative assistants) in a large corporation. Here are some "must-have" scenario's:
  • Single mother in a custody battle with her ex-husband
  • Admin assistant sleeps with boss
  • Super Mom that wishes she could be a housewife
  • Addictive personality admin assitant
  • The "B" -- nothing is good enough for her
  • The ultra conservative lady with "strong morals"
  • The Cheerleader turned Corporate Cheerleader
  • The lesbian that made a mistake and wants to go back to heterosexuality
  • The heterosexual male admin assistant (think of that guy in Sandra Bullock's movie, The Proposal)
  • The gay male admin assistant

I think that would make an excellent show if not, dramatic!! I call it THE HIVE to be symbolic of all the worker bees that make a corporation run.
