Nerd Lunch SyFy Series Pitch Challenge

34
I am laying down a challenge, Nerd Lunchers. For lo these many years, the Sci Fi Channel (k.n.a "SyFy") has brought us innovative programming like "Battlestar: Galactica" and "Farscape." But it has also brought us a certain brand of competent yet unspectacular show, liked pretty well by People Who Like That Sort of Thing and usually adored by some subset of the nerd community.

I'm talking "Stargate: S.G.1." "Eureka." "Warehouse 13." Hack work, you say? Perhaps. But the hacks involved know what we like, and they work pretty hard to deliver it. But lately, SyFy has been moving towards more reality-show fare. Help them, Nerd Lunch . . . you're their only hope.

So next week, the team from Nerd Lunch is going to pitch some shows and remind SyFy how it's done. I will suggest the following guidelines:

Check back next week for as many pitches as we can throw at you.
