Sandra Bullock’s Miss Congeniality is apparently much-loved by real FBI agents even though the last movie in the series, Miss Congeniality: Armed And Fabulous, came out nine years ago in 2005. So it’s with no surprise that a Miss Congeniality TV show might be just as popular.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, George Clooney says Sandra drinks alcohol way too much, but maybe she’s just celebrating since the success of Gravity gave her a huge payday.
In the 2000 hit movie Miss Congeniality Sandra Bullock played FBI agent Gracie Hart who went undercover in a beauty pageant. Apparently, in order to make the film more authentic Sandra worked with real FBI agents:
“Sandra loved her ‘Miss Congeniality‘ FBI agent character Gracie Hart and the concept so much that for years she has continued to keep up friendships with FBI agents she met while researching it. Sandra loves that real FBI agents, particularly female ones, continue to respond to and write her letters about both ‘Miss Congeniality’ and ‘The Heat’.”
Although the sequel was not quite the success when compared to the original, Sandra believes now is the time to bring the story to the next generation audience by spinning the concept off into a serialized TV version. Like the original, this TV show will of course be a comedy first but the action elements should play a major point in the plot. So far descriptions of the Miss Congeniality TV show are describing the concept as 24 meets Bridesmaids.
Those details actually make the most sense. Beauty pageants tend to last only a relatively short amount of time so the plot could not be expected to span months of real time although I doubt the show would be split up into actual one hour blocks. Personally, I’m hoping the concept is expanded into other areas of the fashion industry, from the catwalk to red carpet shows.
This also would not be the first time Sandra Bullock has produced a TV show. The George Lopez TV show was produced by her for five years so it’s probable the new show will both star and be produced or directed by her. What do you think about the idea?
