I was reading this weeks People magazine earlier today and they had a section talking about new television shows for the Fall season. Did you know that there’s going to be a show based on the Geiko Cavemen commercials???
Yeah, it’s called Cavemen and it premieres on ABC on Tuesday, October 2nd at 8 p.m.. It’s about three cavemen who’ve struggled to acclimate themselves into urban society and their lives in San Diego CA.
From the shows website:
Meet three cavemen who have successfully made the move to San Diego and are just trying to fit in. Joel (Bill English) is a sophisticated and intelligent man who has a beautiful girlfriend, a decent job and shares an apartment with his younger brother, Andy (Sam Huntington, Superman Returns), and his best friend, Nick (Nick Kroll, VH1’s Best Week Ever). Nick is wary of the Homo sapien world and feels like he’s running away from his heritage. Andy, on the other hand, looks at this new world with his eyes wide open and is willing to take risks in order to learn and to live life to the fullest.
Nick questions Joel on many of his choices, including his girlfriend, Kate (Kaitlin Doubleday, The TV Set), a beautiful Homo sapien woman and high society southern belle. The fact that Kate’s eccentric mother, Leslie (Julie White, Tony Award winner for The Little Dog Laughed), owns Joel’s condominium complex makes things even more complicated for the three roommates. Meanwhile, Kate’s best friend, Thorne (Stephanie Lemelin), is intent on discovering the cavemen’s wilder side.
Joel, Nick and Andy have to overcome prejudice from most of the Homo sapien world and the misconceptions that modern society has of its earliest ancestors. In order for these cavemen to survive in the 21st century, they must work together to render those misconceptions extinct.
I really don’t know if this show will go over well or not. I think it will have to be pretty funny to make it. I don’t know what the full Tuesday line up of shows will be, but I expect this show will have some heavy competition.
What do you think? Will you check out this show or not?
