Once again, here is the full list of rules:
THE FIRST AP.NET FANTASY TV SHOW DRAFT
The Biggest Rule of All (So Big It Needed its Own Paragraph-type Thing):
YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO CREATE AN ORIGINAL SHOW CONCEPT AT SOME POINT.
- Everyone will take turns drafting based on the draft order.
- Each Drafter has 18 hours to make their pick, or they will be skipped over that round.
- Each round will reverse the draft order (Round 1 draft order will be 1, 2, 3,... Round 2 draft order will be 20, 19, 18...)
- Each show will consist of 8 parts, divvied up however you like. Of these eight, you must have one lead part, two supporting parts, two recurring parts, a special guest star (a media personality of any type and any stature/level of fame), and the director for your pilot.
- However, should you opt to create an ensemble cast of more than one lead, you may. The catch here is that each of your second through sixth leads eliminates one of your supporting or recurring roles.
- You may also choose to pick a third recurring role. This may only happen by forgoing your right to a special guest star.
- Once a person is drafted, then can not be drafted by anyone else.
- All eligible choices must be living actors or actresses. There isn't, however, a minimum or maximum amount of years since their last major project that affects eligibility.
This is a fantasy draft revolving around television. Just as you were required to paint a picture of the fantasy band you created, you must create a tv show containing all the picks you are making, and it will be required around the same time band write-ups were (after draft picks, before posting the public poll). I understand this is much more daunting, so please do not commit if this level of creativity/thought doesn't appeal to you.
How To Make Your Pick:
To keep this from getting cluttered, please don't post an updated list of drafted actors. I will frequently update the second post here with who has been drafted (If for whatever reason I go missing, just type up the last few and post so people know).
- When it's your turn, make your pick in bold with the actor/actress' name, and if relevant, what previous work you want people to remember them from, movie or TV.
- If a primarily dramatic actor is the anchor of your new sitcom, remind us of their previous (and however seldom) comedic work for a reference point.
- Example: 1st Lead - Bryan Cranston (Malcolm In The Middle; Hal)
- Feel free to post a picture/video of your selection if you like and/or include justification (or awesome taunting/trash talk).
- Also, try to quote the person with the next pick so they know they're up!
- If you won't be around for your pick, please make sure another drafter or myself has the pick!
Feel free to post a picture of whoever you select! Just please don't quote it or post any other pictures to avoid clutter.
Also feel free to discuss, trash talk, and talk about this in the thread!
Look below for draft order. If someone is unable to compete the next reserve will take that participant's place.
If you are low in the order, don't fret; the early picks will get their favorite actors, but you're much more likely to get your top two people to pair together.
Next, here is the official draft order:
7. Cody Nelson
11. Star Slight
Finally, this is based off a 22-episode broadcast TV season, so episode ceilings are as follows: Lead (22), Supporting (19), Recurring (9), Special Guest Star (5).
So without further ado, Evan, you may start us off!
