There are plenty of occupations out there that would not make for exciting TV, like, say, stimulus bill writing. But surely there are jobs beyond lawyer, doctor, and cop that would make for great television and haven't yet, for some reason. I'm talking scripted shows here, by the way, not reality TV.
For example, I think an exciting and intense drama could be made out of Wall Street on the trading floor. Where's TV's Gordon Gekko? It would be especially timely right now, given what's going on in the nation. I also think there could be a comedy about real estate agents, what with all the different people and interesting location possibilities. (And again, I know there are reality shows about real estate agents, but a scripted show could be a lot juicier!)
But you tell me: What jobs do you think would make for good TV? And would your job make for good TV?
