Check out Dave Coulier’s outline for the world’s greatest TV show that never was: Dave and Flav

Pin it

It's hard when shows get cut down in their prime. Firefly, Pushing Daisies, Freaks and Geeks, we hardly knew thee. (PSA: It is your patriotic duty to watch Community. PSA concluded.) But it's almost harder when you hear about awesome shows that somehow never got a pilot. Case in point: Dave and Flav.

Dave Coulier has some new web series called Can't Get Arrested, and it features his Full House costar Jodie Sweetin, and blah blah blah shut up, Uncle Joey. What really matters is this treasure that came out of an interview about the project: he's itching to do a show with his Surreal Life buddy Flavor Flav.

"Yeah, we always wanted to do a TV show together. It'd be called 'Dave and Flav,' about the whitest Midwestern guy living with the guy from Public Enemy. We meet each other on a park bench and then we hear this baby crying, and we look back and it's a baby in a stroller, and we're like, 'What are we gonna do? We gotta take care of the baby.' So we befriend each other and raise the baby."

What is this feeling? Could it be… yes, I think it might be… okay, it's definitely all my wildest dreams realized. How this show wasn't greenlit through TV-exec telepathy the minute it entered Coulier's head remains a mystery, but it's not too late, networks! You can right the great, great injustice of this show's continued non-existence. Now excuse me while I go work on my audition tape for the part of "Baby."
