from 1wrestling.com:

"Mick Foley is in talks with CBS about developing and starring in a new drama where he would play a Tampa Bay police detective. The show would be a one hour episodic drama.

The show would be part of the WWE Films division with both Vince and Linda McMahon set to be involved from the production standpoint.

An announcement regarding the show will take place in the industry trade publication, Variety, later this week.

Foley is still rumored to return to the ring for WrestleMania XX against Triple H."

This could be pretty good if the network lets Mick be his natural, amusing self.

Heard that on the radio this morning, as well.

I have to say, if they do this Columbo-style, with Mick annoying the hell out of his potential suspects, it could be GOLD!

Foley on TV is always good!

Just as long as they end each episode with a cheesy one liner and Foley giving the "Cheap-Pop" thumbs up.

And Al Snow has to be in it as the guy Foley always rags on.

I'd definitely watch it at first, just for the novelty value. But would it be blasphemy if he used a stunt double?

Considering the track record of the WWF/E in anything that doesn't involve a wrestling ring, this could be the Blunder in Paradise of this wrestling generation.

Not at all, TV shows are dangerous. Just ask Lita.

I thought that Stone Cold's appearances on 'Nash Bridges' were some of the highest rated of the series.

And they have a great advertising vehicle for the show, should it actually see the light of day.

Kinda like when Don Knotts finally showed up on "Matlock" to work with his old "Andy Griffith Show" partner Andy Griffith.

Yes I watched the show. Bite Me!

Am I wrong, but wasn't that WCW's pile of crap? Show sucked anyhow, mostly that damn boat.

Yes I watched that show too. Bite Me Even More!

But anyway, I would love to see this show. Foley is funny and smart. Lets hope IF they do it, they do it right.

Considering how many people get development deals that never ever make it to TV, I wouldn't get too excited until it's actually announced as part of the CBS schedule.

Nobody should have to make excuses watching a show that would frequently feature Carol Alt walking around in next-to-nothing.

And this one is going to last about as long as Goldie & The Bears as opposed to Columbo.

Hmm, interesting...very interesting. Talk about having the good life after wrestling in front of a crowd less than 30 in Poca WV. Reference, check his first book Page 90 spelled POLKA! I live less than a mile from that location. Anyways, I hope he does get on TV. I think I could dig a hefty dude investing dead people. *LOL*


*EDIT*
Apparently not dead people...but ruthless people doing ruthless things and he's ruthless cop. Anybody feel "Ruthless Agression" somewhere in this *LOL*

True, true.

I know this wasn't WWE(F) ... but what about that God awful episode of Baywatch with Hogan, Savage, Flair & Vader ... Wasn't it something like Flair stole the money for a children's center and they all had to wrestle for it in the end? Man that was terrible.

What made it even worse was that they incorporated BayWatch involvement into Bash at the Beach '95, otherwise known as Hogan Defends the WCW Title for the first time in about 6 months. Scary to remember how bad pre-Nitro WCW '95 was.

This show also featured the great line by Sting.

Sting: Meng knows seven styles of martial arts. Well Sting? He knows seven style o' CRAZY!

Other great moments on that Baywatch episode? Vader crushes a basketball. Flair acts like Flair. Jimmy Hart's music becomes the weekly video montage. Hogan's acting for once isn't as bad as people he's starring with. (Pam Anderson, I'm looking at you.) Hasselhoff won't appear next to Hogan, or Savage...lest he look like a wuss.

My show:
Foley as a street tough detective with a heart of gold. He solves crimes wth advice from a down on his luck pimp Snow Whitey (cleverly played by Al Snow) who gets made fun of by our hero. Mick's partner can be played by Teddy Long (who would be the bad ass cool cop always spoutin off awesome one liners at the end of each scene). At the end of every show they catch the bad guy and all learn a valuable lesson which Mick will say followed by a big thumbs up!

Here's how I would cast the show: Al Snow would be Foley's bumbling rookie partner, Pat Patterson would be the anal-retentive, hotheaded captain (don't go there), Teddy Long would be the defense attorney and overall pain in the ass to Foley's character, and Stacey Keibler would be the eye candy of the show as the only officer on the force who wears super-short skirts to work. Let's not forget the special guest stars Yerple and Mr. Socko as well. How could this not be a hit?
