Fox Names the Judges for "On The Lot"

Fox Names the Judges for "On The Lot"

I'm getting psyched for "On the Lot," Fox's summer reality series in which filmmakers will compete for the chance at a $1 million development deal with Dreamworks. Fox has chosen its slate of judges, and it's full of Hollywood powerhouses: Garry Marshall, Carrie Fisher, Brett Ratner and Jon Avnet (not pictured).

It sounds like they've got all corners of Hollywood covered with these four: Producers, directors, writers and actors, spanning from relatively young (Ratner) to fairly old (Marshall). Between them, the judges have worked on sci fi, chick flicks, and blockbusters, so they've got a wide variety of tastes and experiences. I think the greatest part will be watching them interact: Ratner is a goofball, and Carrie Fisher could turn out to be the nutty Paula Abdul of the bunch. I've seen Garry Marshall speak before, and he seems like a nice man, but I could see him getting mean Simon-style if someone presents a sub-par film.

"On the Lot" will air twice each week, with a format similar to "American Idol." On one show, we'll see the contestants put together films in a variety of genres and get to vote on our favorites; on the other, the filmmaker with the fewest votes will be voted off. The show starts May 22 after the final "Idol" performance show, with 50 finalists getting sent to a rigorous "Hollywood boot camp." Can't wait till then? Check out some of the films submitted to the competition.

Ooh.. isn't this a bit of a Project Greenlight rip off? And that never really produced a money making film even though they found some talented writers (and I am referring to the movies before Feast mind you).

This could be fun, but like the Idol judges, these folks are going to have their work cut out for them as they narrow down to the final 50; some of the submitted films are "lacking."

I'm not a very big reality show fan, but I could see myself watching this just for the judges input.
