CREATED: WEDNESDAY, 02/06/19 - 3:35 AM - In the course of doing some casting research on YouTube for my TV sitcoms "Big Nutty Family" and "Expert Services," I was led to cast comedian Russell Peters in "Hopeless Womantic." It was while doing that this I first learn of an Iranian comedian named Omid Djalili. That led me to cast him in "Big Middle Brother." Not sure how this will change my current storyline, but here are my thoughts at this moment:
- The title "Big Middle Brother" refers to China being like a middle brother to the United States and Russia.
- The title "Big Middle Brother" refers to an Iranian living in an Iranian community in the United States.
- The title "Big Middle Brother" refers to OMID DJALILI, a "middleman" Iranian businessman.
- The title "Big Middle Brother" also refers to Omid's compatriot - affectionately known as "The Ayatollah," who brokers political deals between different parties at the local and state government level.
- The title "Big Middle Brother" refers to Omid's buddy LAVAR CRAWFORD, who is the first to refer to Omid as "my big middle brother."
CREATED: WEDNESDAY, 02/06/19 - 3:56 AM - I create the following concept:
- Each of the characters in this TV sitcom represents a different country, and their interactions are reflective of how the world's superpowers deal with each other.
- Omid Djalili represents Iran.
- Vladimir Putin represents Russia.
- Ken Jeong represents China.
- Darryl Hammond represents the United States. He can do impressions of other races, which sometimes oftens the others.
- George Lopez represents Mexico.
- Lavar Crawford represents Africa.
- Margaret Thatcher represents Europe.

- OBJECTIVES: As with all of our projects, our goal is to:
- Teach history and give our audiences some background into why things are the way they are.
- Debunk the myths, hoaxes, and "fake news."
- INSPIRE: We hope to create a sense of wonder to inspire a new generation of Americans to take action and do the right things. Because our show's supporting characters is a dreamer who aspires to greatness, our audiences can follow their respective paths.
- OUR ACTIONS DEFINE OUR CHARACTER: We need to show our audiences what road one has to travel in order to achieve our lifelong dreams. Nothing is promised or guaranteed. Nothing is free. One has to suffer some pain to elevate one's life to the next level.
- CALL TO ADVENTURE: When we are personally challenged by an evil person or called out by evil events (criminal activity, war, etc.) occurring within our community, we need to answer, or the evil will eventually reach us after it destroys our neighbors.
PROTAGONISTS: THE ARCHITECTS
Architect Zaha Hadid was a world-famous architect who passed away on March 31, 2016. By showing audiences her extensive portfolio of designs via our feature films, we hope to inspire a new generation of architects who will push the boundaries of building design and construction.
