This is already better than any movie that I've seen this year.

I may also enlist Masato and the guys here to help me with an idea I have for an episodic tv series featuring Elvis Presley as a private detective. Based out of Graceland in Memphis, Elvis and various members of the Memphis Mafia would travel around the country in a custom Winnebago on assignment utilizing traditional karate and good old American ingenuity to crack difficult cases. Securing the use of the music would be challenging but I would utilize the Presley songbook liberally. I'm thinking each weekly episode would feature one style vs style martial arts brawl between Elvis' crew and various exotic baddies ie karate vs Kung Fu; karate vs judo, karate vs street fighting etc; one complete song performance; and one slapstick physical comedy pratfall featuring various unfortunate members of the Memphis Mafia, often courtesy of Elvis' pranking; These weekly staples would be placed in different order week to week, keeping the viewer guessing just when his or her favorite bit was coming up. And at the end of each episode Elvis would look directly into the camera and explain the moral of the story to the kids at home.

Not sure if it's a hit or not, but I'd like to think it stands a chance.

Mike Tyson mysteries did this already
People say they all want the truth, but when they are confronted with a truth that disagrees with them, they balk at it as if it were an unwanted zombie apocalypse come to destroy civilization.

Dammit. You just saved me a lot of work. I need to check this Mike Tyson Theater out, it sounds fantastic.

Beginnings of a semi-blind first draft... nothing yet is set in stone, let me know what you guys think I have a few loose ideas where it could go from here:

Fergie doesn't even have to be a main character. This could just be an introduction into the chinatownesque underworld of ping pong hustlers.

But it would be silly to avoid occasional references to the philosophical safecart racing hobos throughout the film.

Potential for a spin-off, clearly.
