Phil talks with the BSP’s about the corrupt business of American radio and talks about his career.

The catch is that food and buffets will be strategically placed all around the island to temp them

I’ve heard him give this speech in one form or another probably 3 or 4 dozen times. I can’t be the only one that’s tired of this same vent.
Don’t forget that one (I think it might’ve been Brad Rifkin?) about staging kidnappings at the mall, and then reuniting the kids with their parents at the end, after everybody was sufficiently traumatized. Summer 2004, I think. The working title was something like “Escape From Fashion Island.”
A collection of TV pitches is a great idea. Don’t forget “Will You Be My Mommy” with Tony Neil (winter 2003).
I’m putting together a ‘Phil Hendrie’s Failed TV Pitch” file, which includes the failed TV pitches from Hester, Norton, Sadler, etc. Shows like “Blindside”, “Gotcha!”, “Alzheimer’s House”, “Diet Island”, “Pitfall” (and more!) will be included.
