Meet the Brights

memo to Hollywood producer type (television division):

idea for a great sitcom or a reality-based show:
The Brights or perhaps Meet the Brights

The Pitch:
a "positive, warm, cheerful", fun-filled half hour of prime-time hilarity - and cosciousness-raising - in which we get to spend time with a young twenty-something gal who realises its time to break out of the narrow, repressed and bigoted world of her small-town Southern Baptist family and come out of the closet as a Bright. So she heads to the Bright lights of either a) New York or b) Hollywood and moves into an apartment building that is home to a multicultural, tolerant and diverse group of witty, clever and good-looking, fun-loving, but socially aware, Brights (including the Black Bright, The Gay Bright, The Feminist Bright, the lovable old Liberal Professor Bright, the struggling Actor/Comedian/Magician Bright, and the divorced/working mother Bright raising her two adorable Bright kids).

Each week we can laugh along with, AND be made politically-aware, as the Brights humiliate and mock church-goers, Republicans, people of faith, priests, Sunday school teachers, opponents of abortion, creationists, Southerners, suburbanites, wingnuts who espouse traditional morality and ethics, faithfully married couples, singles who believe in chastity, and anyone else too unenlightened to share in their brave new naturalistic worldview "free of the supernatural or mysticism".

It'll be a season hit!

What's that? Oh, you already have, and have had for many years now, an entire programming ethos predicating on disseminating Bright propaganda via the mass media... I thought the theme and plot sounded familiar...
