Original Adult Comedy Television Series Proposal
Overbearing, obnoxious, and manipulative businesswoman Julie Halters has acquired a massive fortune in her half-century of life. However, when she participates in insider trading, her fortune and prestige are taken away. When her estranged grandfather passes away and bequeaths her a spa on the edge of downtown Los Angeles, she jumps at the chance to reestablish herself. To her shock and horror, the spa is not a health or beauty spa but a gay bathhouse staffed with a culturally diverse group of men who don't take kindly to a privileged White woman managing their beloved workplace. A creative reimagining of the television show "Cheers" at a bathhouse, we invite you to peruse BATHHOUSE BETTY'S DIARIES.
In the traditional approach to television comedy, Bathhouse Betty’s Diaries is a live-action, multi-camera, thirty-minute sitcom in which our anti-heroine Julie Halters, an overbearing businesswoman, inherits a gay bathhouse staffed with an eclectic group of men who force her to face her own belief system, which she slowly realizes is quite prejudicial.
The multi-camera aspect of the series is an intentional device that gives the show the spirit of live theater. Bathhouse Betty’s Diaries touches on a number of provocative topics, and the energy and participation of a live audience will provide the subject matter the immediate gravitas and emotional gratification it deserves.
EPISODE ONE: DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE
Entitled and embattled businesswoman Julie Halters inherits a gay bathhouse staffed with an eclectic group of employees that challenge her views on race, gender, and sexuality. Assistant Manager David convinces her not to sell the building but stay on and manage, at least until the LA Gay Pride.
EPISODE two: bear night at the bathhouse
During a night dedicated to the Bear community, Julie inadvertently realizes her attraction to David when David finds himself attracted to one of the Bear patrons. The patrons also bring out self-image issues with Jesús (formerly obese) and Angel (who is jealous that no one is noticing him).
