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.

I leave the room or change the channel, when commercials come on, except for the, Caveman and Heads On. They are both very funny. My favorite is the one where the caveman passes a portrait of himself. Love it, love it! The one they should get rid of is, that, Jessica Parker. Who does she know to be on so many commercials? In fact get rid of all of the celebs, and use ordinary people; for one the Dove, commercial.

Love the idea! Love the character! Love the commercials! I hope they keep the original cavemen! This will be a change from the mudane shit that is on now! really so sick of realtity television, I live in reality everyday and hate it why does it have to be a tv show. If I want to see inside the lives of some sick people I can watch the news or even the public access channel and see what Washington is doing to f*** us up even more! Now that is reality tv at it's finest!

Phil Hartman used to do a caveman attorney thing on SNL. That got old pretty quick!! Clearly the creative juices are running dry in Hollywood. And the networks wonder why viewers are abandoning them in droves!!

I am currently finishing up the pilot, and working on several brewing plot lines. Thanks for all the positive comments folks, this show is going to bring back the sitcom!

Matt Willey: Everyone else seems to love the idea. We got your opinion the first time you posted, why the multiple posts? Are you obssessed with the cavemen or just a real loser with nothing better to do?

I always mute the tv when the geico cavemen come on. Very overplayed and not very funny.
