New topic for a new half hour comedy from the US that i'm particularly looking forward to. It's called [b:22d7e0a515]Sam I Am[/b:22d7e0a515] and it stars Christina Applegate. Here's a synopsis:

[quote:22d7e0a515]How would you like to rewind your life, erase all the mistakes and cringe-worthy moments and start over with a clean slate? It's a common fantasy. But for Samantha Newly, the fantasy is far too real. After a hit-and-run car accident puts her into an eight-day coma, she wakes up with retrograde amnesia. She can function in the world, but she can't remember a single fact about her own life!

As Samantha digs through clues like a detective to find out who she is (or was), she's hindered by unreliable narrators: her parents and friends all seem to have something to hide from her. Only Samantha's boyfriend -- a stranger, now -- is trustworthy. Quickly, though, Samantha learns what everyone else knows: she was a horrible person. Vain, selfish, lacking conscience or heart, she had far more enemies than friends. She even cheated on her boyfriend. So when Samantha learns that her "accident" was actually an attempted murder, she is, unfortunately, not surprised.

If you could start over, would you do things differently? Could you do them differently? Can people change? Or are we just... who we are? These are the questions Sam I Am asks, as our heroine begins the long, comic process of starting over from scratch -- fixing old mistakes, reconnecting with her not-so-loving family and rediscovering love. While friends yank her in different moral directions… afraid of the "old Sam" returning… afraid that her would-be killer will try again… Samantha tries to remake herself through good, positive choices -- even though the bad ones are so much easier (and way more fun).

Don Todd (Ugly Betty) co-created and wrote this inspired comedy with best-selling Irish author, Cecelia Ahern (PS, I Love You). Peter Traugott (Jake in Progress) of Brillstein Grey also executive produces through the ABC Studios.

The show launches in September/October in a slot where it will follow the high rating Dancing With The Stars. Seven is the Australian Network that has the rights to this new comedy.

Here is the official video preview:

Show's name has been changed to '[b:739cd839c7]Samantha Be Good[/b:739cd839c7]' due to naming issues with Dr. Seuss.

That looks great! I really like Christina Applegate in comedic roles....(I loved her Jesse series which was run a few years ago)....and if the trailer for this show is anything to go by, this one looks to be even better. Im definately marking this one on my 'must watch' list.

Sounds like a great concept for a tv show. I hope it airs in Australia eventually.

I really loved the Pilot episode.

The cast gelled from the start and it was genuinely amusing.

Christina Applegate is great in this role and show is always believable and adorable. But i found ALL the cast enjoyable and well suited to their respective roles.

Can't wait to see more episodes.

I've never laughed so much from a pilot. I was expecting more of a dramdy, but it was laugh out loud hilarious.

Awesome new show. I will be tuning in for a while I think.
