    This ties into my last thread, "What channel would you like to see air a live-action Transformers TV Series?" in which I asked what
    channel would you like to see air a live-action Transformers TV Series. Now I will actually be talking about my ideas for one. First of all,
    the series would be another reboot of the Transformers franchise but instead of bringing in new human characters once again, I would
    keep the original G1 humans: Spike (Sam) Witwicky, Carly Spencer, Chip (I dunno, maybe an actual name like Chris or something.)
    Chase, and Sparkplug (Ron) Witwicky. The first episode would actually be part of a week-long marathon consisting of a multi-part mini-series which would add-up to about 5 hours since most live-action shows tend to run in at about an hour. As for the Transformers themselves, I was thinking of tying their history into ours much like the live-action films and Transformers: Prime. I would have five main Autobots and five main Decepticons although in the latter's case, there would be much more in the first five episodes. Now I'll move on to the story: The Autobots have remained a govermant secret for over a century when an Autobot scout ship crashes in Roswell, New Mexico. The story is set in motion when Megatron makes his threat clear and prepares an attack on Earth's major cities, most notably, New York. The 5 Autobots who take sanctuary on Earth: Optimus, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide, and Arcee, must band together to defend the planet with a little help from Autobot reinforcements who've arrived via Space Bridge. I've been thinking about the cast for a while and I think I might have a pretty solid one. I would like Michael Angarano from Sky High as Spike, Emma Stone from Zombieland and The Amazing Spider-Man as Carly, Logan Lerman from Percy Jackson and the Olympians as Chip, and finally, Hugh Jackman from the X-Men film series as Sparkplug. For voice cast, I would like Peter Cullen as Optimus, Neil Patrick Harris as Bumblebee, Keith Szrabajka as Ironhide, Fred Tatasciore as Ratchet, Grey DeLisle as Arcee, Hugo Weaving as Megatron, Frank Welker as Soundwave, Steve Blum as Starsceam, Corey Burton as Shockwave, and Tara Strong as Slipstream. The show would be aimed toward an older teen audience and be aired on TeenNick. Now for those who ask me why I would want it to be aired on TeenNick, #1. TeenNick is owned by Viacom which in turn owns Paramount Pictures which distributes the live-action Transformers films and #2. I also have an idea for a Star Trek series that I would also want to air on the network. Also, for a developer, I think Robert Zemeckis would be a great choice.

    Sounds great to me and I was thinking about writing a fan fic about the Ark crashing in Roswell. Great minds think alike I guess. BTW, I'd definitely say NO! to NPH as Bumblebee. The only thing I've ever liked him in was Harold and Kumar and Starship Troopers.
