Cooper Brown: Television
I spent the day filming a TV pilot in Holland Park. You, dear reader, are not the only person to spot my potential. It seems that with OMG With Peaches Geldof now looking like history there may need to be a replacement.
Many think that the Cooperman is what’s needed. We were filming one of my ideas in the park – it’s called: “I’m not a flasher I just want to ask you some questions.” I approach people on benches wearing a mac and looking like a sex pervert. I whip open my mac only to reveal... a microphone. Usually, they are so relieved they are happy to answer stupid questions about their lives. One woman did go mental and hit me with her umbrella, but the director said it was good TV and that they would probably use it as the trailer. I don’t get the deal with television – there is so much crap on and yet it seems easy to create. I have been approached by a financier to set up a production company after I winged some ideas his way at a dinner party.
I want to make a show where I take people who don’t win reality shows and give them a second chance. Participants are told that they can make their own way in life or be whisked off in a jet for some other challenge, like becoming a mercenary or something. If they do OK, they get a huge cash prize. If it all goes wrong… well, I haven’t thought that through yet, but they’d have to sign a form about stuff like that. It’s all really exciting. Cooper Out.
