Top 5 Government TV Shows That Should Exist

Originally posted at GovLoop: Facebook for Government

So there's CSI and NCIS and 24 and Parks and Recreation and other government-related TV shows.

But there should be more...Here are my 5 ideas:

  1. Deadly Diseases - Think House but with a CDC twist. Responding to disease outbreaks all over the world

  • Search and Rescue - FEMA and Emergency Response folks swooping into disaster areas and helping everyone out. Bonus -- hooking up in tents.
  • The Politicals - Young political appointees are followed in a group house (Real World-style) as they get top political jobs and try to figure out what the heck they are doing
  • Man vs Wild - Department of Interior and National Park Service employees are followed as they are responsible for thousands of rural acres in the national parks by themselves. Think lots of crazy attacks and cute tourists.
  • The Auditor - Follow teams of GAO reporters as they travel across the country trying to find and report waste, fraud, and abuse. Also titled "Progress Made, Needs Improvement."
  • You? What are your ideas?
