365 days of Sci-Fi (Archive)

From the mind behind the mega-hit Syfy show you’ve probably never heard of (EUREKA) comes a tribute to all those no-budget Syfy original movies and the “so bad, they’re good” films that inspired them. Move over Roger Corman, step back Ed Wood, make way on your weekend programming schedule Mr. Stern, because here comes Andrew Cosby’s 365 DAYS OF SCI-FI.

And it’s all happening here! Each day, your friends at CHUD will bring you a brand new bad movie pitch — the best of the worst title Cosby can come up with, no matter where he’s at or what he’s doing, rain or shine, drunk or sober. That’s a whole year of the quality concepts you’ve come to expect from the network that brought you MANSQUITO and SHARKTOPUS.

And now… DAY TEN:

“As I continue with this insane little experiment, I’m realizing some of these ideas would make for better tv shows than movies.  Oh well, I guess it’s in my blood now.  Anyway, there’s an extra pun hidden in today’s pitch.  Let’s see who among you is clever enough to find it.

- Andy Cosby

Those who repeat the past are doomed!

Pitch:

Driving home from a miserable 30th birthday in which her only wish was a chance to do it all over again, a depressed young woman takes a new shortcut and finds herself mysteriously transported back in time to the Dayton, Ohio of yesteryear, where she’s given the opportunity to teach her younger self a few important life lessons in an effort to avoid a bad marriage, poor career choices and an altogether miserable adult existence.  When she returns to the present, her life has changed for the better.  However, the lives of those around her have paid the price for her meddling, forcing her to travel back and forth,making more and more changes in a continuing effort to correct her mistakes and hopefully someday find the perfect balance.

Nick Says: You’d have to be really careful here. It might be too subtle, smart, and good!
