Idea: “12” — a spinoff of “24” for kids

12FOX should make a spinoff of “24” for kids. They should call it “12” and the main character should be twelve years old. Each of the 24 half-hour episodes covers 30 minutes in the life of Brad Bauer (or whoever). The first season could start at 7:00 a.m. on his twelfth birthday as he prepares to head to school, and end at 7:00 PM when he gets home. In between, Brad gets wound up in some crazy adventure and manages to save the day, while he tries to keep up with his classes, celebrate his birthday, and impress that girl he likes in algebra class.

Except would he impress that girl by using torture techniques on the class bully?

Cute post.

Seconded! And travel times between home and school should also seem like just a few seconds.

Thats a great idea, kind of like the Toy Soldiers movie of way back…

Needs more heroin. Could the kid be a raging addict with unlimited minutes on his phone and a battery that just won’t quit.

It’s posts like this which remind me why I enjoy reading this blog.
