Mel Gibson has reportedly recovered from losing his last movie deal, a sequel to a movie where was the star no less, and has been reduced to pitching project ideas to cable television networks. This morning, The Fox Network announced that Gibson would star in his own reality series called 'Loner House', appearing next season on prime time Wednesday nights.
"As you know, we love a good train wreck", says Fox marketing VP, Hammond Mayo. "We don't even need to hire script writers. We'll just follow Mel around with a camera and run with whatever we capture." Questioned about whether that would generate enough footage to create content for weekly show, Mayo replied, "Have you seen this guy in action? He's a walking TMZ highlight reel."
Reportedly earning enough money to cover his living expenses, Gibson can stay financially afloat as long as the Fox series runs. "Which provides Mel with incentive to put on a good show", says Mayo. Gibson on the other hand is concerned about creating enough quality personal encounters with old girlfriends, Jewish police officers and talk show hosts to fill out the first season. Mayo reassured him. "Mel, baby. Just walk into your local food market and let the natural you just hang out. It's all GOLD baby!".
Episode one apparently features Gibson doing just that, engaging in a verbal beat down of a soccer mom who accidentally bumped into his ankle with her shopping cart. After being "Tazed" by the woman, Mel stopped drooling enough to finish shopping for lunch meat.
"Gripping drama for your momma", says the Melbourne Journal.
