TV is So Easy, Even a Caveman Can Do It

3/2/2007 2:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

CavemanABC is looking to an unlikely place to find the next big television show: Geico TV commercials.

Yes, the net is developing a half-hour comedy based on the cavemen characters from the popular insurance ads. The show would revolve around three pre-historic men who must battle prejudice as they live their day-to-day lives in modern Atlanta. Who smells Emmy?

The Geico spots feature cavemen pissed off over Geico's slogan for its website: "So easy, a caveman can do it." At least they didn't try and make a show out of that stupid gecko, although that's probably next.

To #10. You should be ashamed or yourself. You are just prejudiced against cavemen. Why? Do you think they aren't talented enough to pull this thing off? They have made such great contributions to our world. The wheel....the loincloth....the club....the inspiration for the razor not to mention soap and deodorant. Even primates have become respected members of the entertainment community (witness King Kong) and cavemen are eons more advanced than they are not to mention Jessica Simpson. It's so sad we live in such a world or intolerance. I hope they hire Jackie Childs as their attorney to combat the prejudicial attitudes of individuals like you. You sicken me.

I LOVE these commercials. Some of the best on TV. I can't stand those "Head-On" commercials. I switch the TV immediately when they come on, but the cavemen from Geico is GREAT, especially the Little Richard, and Physiologist ones.

The commercials are ok, but a tv show? Give me a break, dumb idea, tv executives are grasping at straws.
