    Idea for New SitCom: "Mrs. Quarterback"

    To: NBC Executive Board, Pilot Committee

    From: Armen Dacity

    Re: Sitcom Idea: "Mrs. Quarterback"

    ----------------------------------------------

    The Premise: A religious, middle-aged wife of a veteran NFL QB is forced to co-exist with the promiscuous, partying girlfriend of a rookie second string QB. Hilarity ensues.

    Setting will be the desert Southwest. Nice scenery and a lots of hot weather to provide excuses for skimpy clothing.

    Characters:

    Glenda Werner: The older wife. She is very religious and the devoted mother of seven children. She doesn't have great fashion sense, and doesn't fit in well with her husband's life as a "celebrity." She often says too much, but deep down, she has a heart of gold.

    Bert Werner: The veteran QB. He is also very religious, and somewhat of an unwilling celebrity. His best days are behind him, but he still believes he can relive the glory. He's been burned before by an upstart rookie playing behind him, but he nonetheless continues to say all the right things.

    Pat Rhinert: The rookie QB. He is the cocky, Hollywood type. He has been extremely successful in college, and expects nothing less in the Pros. However, inside, he knows he may not have what it takes.

    Athens Mariott: The rookie's party-loving girlfriend. She's the spoiled rich-girl heiress to a vast hotel fortune. She's bounced around from sleezy sexcapades with older men, to failed relationships with rich boys, rock stars and actors, and now is hooked up with a flashy athlete. She has the morals of a sewer rat.

    ------------------------------

    Sample Scene from Pilot

    Pat: "Athens... hurry up! Bert and Glenda should be here any second. Could you at least put on a bra and panties?"

    Athens: "What--ever!"

    [doorbell rings - Pat opens the door]

    Bert: "Hey, Pat, ready for practice?"

    Pat: "Sure am, Bert. Say, is that a new car?"

    Bert: "Yep. Brand new preowned Ford Taurus. Pretty sweet, huh?"

    Pat: "Um... yeah."

    Bert: "Go check it out."

    [Pat steps outside and trips, nearly falling down the front steps.]

    Pat: "Did you just trip me?"

    Bert: "Me? Trip you? Of course not."

    Pat: "Well, it seemed like you did... and pushed me a little? You're not trying to get me injured, are you?"

    Bert: "Don't be silly."

    [Athens emerges wearing a sheer belly shirt and hot pants]

    Glenda: "Oh my word!"

    Athens: "I know... isn't it hot?"

    Glenda: "Um... well..."

    Athens: "What is it, Church lady?"

    Pat: "Athens! Be nice!"

    Athens: "What--ever!"

    Glenda: "Well, its just that..."

    Bert: "Its okay, honey. You see, Glenda is going to a run the Church bake sale today, and we were wondering if Athens might be able to look after our son, Peter."

    Pat: "What do you say, Athens?"

    Athens: "Um... is he hot?"

    Glenda: "HE'S NINE YEARS OLD!!!!"

    Athens: "What--ever!!!"

    Maybe in one of the episodes, Pat fails a drug test with what turns out to be an excessive amount of penicillen?

    I wonder if everyone gets that this is a reference to reports that Matt Leinart is dating Paris Hilton (not sure if that story has made it to everyone yet).

    Re: Idea for New SitCom: "Mrs. Quarterback"

    I'd like to see an episode where Rick Cliche comes to town the night before the big game against Bert's former team. Pat promises Bert he will meet him to break down some tape, but Rick and Athens convince him to join them for a night on the town. Bert arrives at Pat's house and goes in to start the tape session assuming Pat will be back anytime, but Pat left a different video tape in the VCR...one he and Athens had made. The next morning, the tape has been mysteriously leaked to the press. What happens next? Find out in Episode 3: "98 degrees in the shade."
