Dry Cleaner Wars

Have you seen the A&E show Storage Wars? It's a lot like Pawn Stars and American Pickers, except in this case, treasure hunting entrepreneurs bid on the contents of abandoned storage lockers, without knowing what's in them. Sometimes they find something cool, but mostly it's a lot of crap...old shoes, sporting equipment, hangers. But sometimes it's pay dirt...antiques, vintage guitars, or baseball cards. Now all those shows like that have several things in common: ridicule, drama, and surprise. I have an idea for a new show that I think will be a huge hit. It has all of those elements...and more. DRY CLEANER WARS! First off, this show will offer the viewer a chance to ridicule and feel better than the person on the show. VEWER: "They're paying money to get THAT cleaned? That is the most hideous dress I've ever seen....He spilled yellow mustard on that shirt!  Any discriminating person knows the only appropriate condiment is grey poupon." The element of drama could be demonstrated in several ways. For example, this scenario: CUSTOMER: "Look at this nasty wine stain on my grandma's wedding dress. Can you get it out?" DRY CLEANER: "Ooh, that looks like it's really set in there. I don't know if there's anything we can do with that..." CUSTOMER: "Oh, you've got to help me...I'm desperate." ANNOUNCER: "Will that wine stain come out? Will Rebecca be able to face her family ever again? Find out, right after this." You can feel the tension, I know you can. But what about surprise? How can we be surprised at the dry cleaner? That's easy..all we have to do is dump out the pockets.  "Eww, what the heck is that? I've never seen anything like it!  What is it? We'll tell you, right after this." And once this show takes off, which I'm sure it will, I've already got a spin-off idea. CELEBRITY DRY CLEANER WARS.
