5 Minutes On TV Show Ideas With Lisa Peacock – What Are You Doing?

A podcast mini-series from Designing North Studios, exploring all of the wacky and wild tv show ideas that a person can dream up.

Have you ever found yourself dreaming of a brilliant tv-show idea? Or wondered what people do at home after a long day at the office? Ever thought about putting these two things together? Well, our unconventional creative director, Lisa Peacock has.

Imagine, you’re driving home from work; the sun is nearly setting and people all around are scrambling to get home to family and friends — anticipation for cocktail hour is how I envision it. As excitement for the day’s resolution stirs commotion, you withdraw focus from the current moment in time to ponder the possibilities of what people do as the sun begins to set. As cars crawl into garages, and living rooms light up, an innate curiosity sweeps over — what are they doing? This is where Lisa suggests that the show begin.

Knocking on doors in search of fascinating stories. What better way to uncover the evening habits of everyday people?

Call it a weird curiosity; but it’s as raw as reality tv can be. Everyday people being presented with an unexpected opportunity to share their story with a media audience; no script, expectation or designed outcome, just a candid search for fascinating tales of life right at cocktail hour. After all, we truly believe that everyone has a story to tell.

Do share! We are always open to hear about outlandish ideas you may have brewing.
