So You Think You Can Adopt?

Cue music: "These Are Days" by 10,000 Maniacs....
Coming soon, a new reality show that showcases the rollercoaster ride of international adoption!

Voice-over by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie:
Tune in to see riveting edge of your seat drama as countries open and close, families pushed to the brink of emotional and financial meltdown, witness the heartwarming joy as families travel to their children's birth country to complete their family!

Cue promo clips: mom buried knee deep in paperwork shouting "i just can't do anymore paperwork!!", dad getting beeped by the censors as he waves around the bank statement as couple nearly throws int he towel due to finances, silly fun as couple paints the nursery complete with touching moment as they hang a piece of artwork that represents their child's birth country, finally the climax episode clip where family gets The Call and an email with their child's photo, this episode ends in a cliffhanger as the family prepares to travel; funny but tense moment as family is harassed by Immigration at airport; father is pantomiming rocking a baby and mom is thumbing thru mini dictionary, shot of family eating local food such as horse meat, shots of vodka, anything raw, smelly or otherwise disturbing to Americans, of course amazing and interesting scenic shots in country. finally the episode we're all waiting for, the tearful joyous moment when mom and dad finally meet their baby!
Cue music: "At Last" by Etta James"

C'mon, can't you see this?? I'm thinking I'll pitch it to Oprah or Ellen. Think of the guest star possibilites! Madonna, Sandra Bullock, Ewan McGregor, Branjolina, That girl from Grey's Anatomy...and ME of course as writer/director!!
