I'm sure some of you remember this game...if you do, skip down to "Post Point"

For those who don't, Primetime Pitch was a game on Pogo.com, a games site. It was a fun little game for 1-4 players [always 4 players, as I recall, but AIs filled empty slots] in which you drew cards and made TV shows. I believe you had to put together a gimmick, a star, and a location to make a show, but I could be wrong.

In any case, it was an absurdly popular game, and it was really addictive. Google it for one or two crummy screenshots. Unfortunately, this game was taken down from their site a few years ago, and hasn't been seen since.

Post Point:
Recently, I've been toying around with the idea of writing a clone of the game that captured so many late-night hours with my friends and I. I decided to write a GUI framework in C++, then a quick framework for the gameplay order, then the networking code. I wrote the framework, then realized that I have very little decent recollection of sequence of gameplay in this game.

Which is why I come to you, friends, asking if any of you would care to share your recollections of how this fun game worked. If any of you have any stories, screenshots, or tales from this old game, please share...I'd really like to get a working game. =)
