Lisa Giuseppi:She used to be Tony's best friend between 1977 and 1984. They both went to Garfield Heights High School and would be in a band "Where Are You Going To?" After a fight over a microphone, Tony said "That ***** Is Dead To Me"! But 20+ years later...she returns to his life and is good friends with Helen, Paul, and John. Her daytime job is a nurse at Parma's University Hospital and she still has "Where Are You Going To?" But with a new lead singer...

Joshua Heimlick:He too hung-out with Tony between 1977 and 1984. He would hint at the time that he's gay. When Tony met with Helen, he would hang-out with her and Tony's sisters. He replaced Tony in "Where Are You Going To?" and it's more successful. He owns a nostalgia store called "Collector's Box" and he also dates Lisa and works at The Cleveland Crisis Center. "Where Are You Going To?" name came from this song...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DnxTvqOe-I

Frank Stag:Frank Stag has a jam nite at McGuire's every Thursday. Tony only hangs-out with Frank when he needs money...which is every Thursday. Frank co-owns McGuire's and gives Tony 1/2 price on everything at the bar.

Rick Raccoon:He's a guitarist for a band "3 D's 2 B's and An Awesome Guy" (Don't Ask)! He also plays every Thursday at McGuire's.

Rick Fitzgerald:He plays drums for "3 D's 2 B's and An Awesome Guy" which would later become "3 D's 2 B's and Some Other Guy" once Tony Warner left and Frank Stag replaced him. They also have a band called "Whatever"...because they play whatever they feel like!

Rick Kovach:He plays keyboards for "3 D's 2 B's and An Awesome Guy/Some Other Guy" as well as a Barbershop Quartet and is part of The Cathedral Contemporary Band alongside with Frank Stag, Andy Amos, Jim Zavarella, and his wife Kari Kovach. He's Hungarian-American and said that he played accordion as a child.

Kari Galishoff-Kovach:She sings for "3 D's 2 B's and An Awesome Guy/Some Other Guy" and The Cathedral Contemporary Band. She's Austrian-American and married Rick on Wednesday May 8, 1985. They also travel to Europe on that date.

James Zavarella:Only one of the three people Tony never criticized (the other two are his Grandma Warner and Frank Sinatra). He owns a pizza place called "Jim's Pizza Shack". He also does catering and plays drums for many bands and also owns the most G.I. Joe's in the Cleveland area.

Nelson Nelson:He also plays guitar at The Cathedral Contemporary band, but he also has his own band there. He's the Warner's next-door neighbor and would be out every Friday Night...and he gives Paul and the other Warner's advice.

Nancy Nelson:The wife of Nelson Nelson, she sings and plays guitar at her own leisure. Tony likes Nancy and she would also be in The Cathedral Contemporary Band.

Michael Charles "M.C." Hammer:A bass player for the house band at McGuire's, his day job is the associate access club teacher at The Cathedral Community College. He has a physical handicap since he would walk with a cane.

Greg McAllen:The drummer for the house band at McGuire's. He's a conspiracy theorist and would say "The Moon Landing Was Staged" and is a denier.

Mike Michaelson Sr.:A guitarist for the house band at McGuire's. He and his son are also barflies at McGuire's as well.

Mike Michaelson Jr.:He would talk about conspiracies as well and is a barfly.

Trevor Geoff Downes-Horn:The keyboard player for the house band at McGuire's. He loves progressive music and played Genesis' "Supper's Ready" when the night was done once. He even says that Phil Collins ruined Genesis!
Do you play anything yourself?

Paul would even play cowbell in the Cathedral Community Orchestra and Symphonic Band.

Now here's Paul's workers at The Orson-Ado...

Thomas Oatley:He's a business manager at The Orson-Ado. He's the busiest guy in the business. He takes pity for Paul because he too works hard. He also volunteers at The Cleveland Crisis Center.

Muriel Masterson:She arranges the mail at The Orson-Ado. Her brother is Thomas and she too volunteers at The Cleveland Crisis Center.

Susan Khrushchev:She's the secretary at The Orson-Ado. She's related to Nikita Khrushchev and has a twin sister named Teri.

Teri Khrushchev:She's the secretary at The Orson-Ado. She's related to Nikita Khrushchev and has a twin sister named Susan.

Wally Weasel:He's the co-owner of The Orson-Ado. Of all things, he wants to own The Orson-Ado and has Mafia ties...he also wants to get made.

Here's Paul's workers at The Cathedral Community College...

Dr. Brock Rock "Doc" Miller:He's an intern pastor and would like to be the pastor at The Cathedral Community College. The Reverend would rather have Nelson be the minister ones he dies. Doc Miller went to **** Roberts University which is next to Oral Roberts University. Doc Miller was born in Hell, Michigan and was raised in Troy. He's a die-hard Wolverines Fan and is the same age as James-Paul Warner.

Eleanor Richalenstein:She's the secretary of The Cathedral Community College. She likes Paul and once defended him after Gutch Konarski almost fired him. Elanor also likes disco, her favorite disco band is The Bee Gees....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JoZS6LgqYI

Alexandra Miller:She's the archive and file worker at The Cathedral Community College. She's the wife of Doc Miller and rarely talks.

Anna-Sophia Saggs:She's a teacher at The Cathedral Community College who has a crush on The Reverend. She's hated Paul ever since Kindergarten. She used to be a stripper, a dancer, and a model until she started to lose her figure.

Ryan Weber:He works at the Strength In The Hospitality, a non-for-profit that helps people live The American Way.

I'm curious to learn more about this sitcom idea and I was wondering if you could these questions.

1. Who is the target audience for this show?
2. Is this animated or live action?
3. Do you have any connections? Are you going to independently fund this?
4. How do you expect to get so many celebrity guests and rights to the licensed music?
5. How do you expect to start with 1 season of this? Also, a sponsorship from Miller?
6. Did you really plan this to go on for 12 seasons?
7. Where exactly does the humor come from?
8. How much influence would you say this show takes from shows like The Simpsons, Cheers, Newhart, Seinfeld, Home Improvement and The Wonder Years?

P.S.
It's Miller time

1-The 18-49 viewership...the show will be TV-MA.
2-It's live-action...it was going to be animated, but that'll take a long time.
3-Most likely...independent...I have another show to begin which is a midnight movie show.
4-This will be a thing I'll worry about...I'll also show other TV shows/movies/cartoons that'll need a requested fee.
5-If Season 1 fails on a station...the rest will be seen online. It'll be sponsored by many products.
6-Yes.
7-The humor is dark and obscure...
8-The influence comes from many sitcoms from I Love Lucy, All In The Family, Home Improvement, Seinfeld, and Frasier just to name a few....

PS-I had an argument with my brother today about Tony...he hates it that he uses force with a gun toward anyone...I only use this to show how much of an ******* he (Tony) is.

PPS-The Reverend's REAL name is **** Roberts, the long-lost brother of Oral Roberts.

Default Update...

I just finished a rough draft for the pilot episode of Bertstown...it's 25 pages long, that's why it's a rough draft.

I'm gonna give it to my brother and to someone who knows about scripts.

Since it's called Bertstown, the answer should be obvious:

Bert is my #1 Sesame Street Character.

I made a minor change...Helen Warner's middle name is "Bernadette", but many would call her Helen Bernie...and I had a dog named Helen Bernie. The character HATES being called Helen Bernie...but she does enjoy this song....
