I had an interesting idea: a sequel to the classic show My Favorite Martian (and NOT a sequel to that truly awful 1999 Disney flick). A new Martian comes to Earth and gets stranded. The new show would be pretty faithful to the original, with the Martians looking outwardly human except for the antenna. It should be more highbrow humor, comedic social commentary. If done right, this could be very good, maybe brilliant.
The new Martian could be played by someone like Rob Corddry, Alec Baldwin, Eddie Murphy (watch him in the 1998 film 'Holy Man'). Or they could do something totally different, maybe a female Martian, 'Marcia the Martian'. Just an idea.
Could have some interesting dialogue like: "How can you be from Mars? There's no life on Mars, Nasa sent probes there and found nothing" and the Martian says "There is no life on Mars, there's life IN Mars. But you Earthlings only ever look at the surface."
