"behind the story

A friend of mine came to me with the idea of doing something where the main character wears a Hawaiian shirt. I said give me a couple of days to come up with a story. I began to brainstorm. I didn't want to do my normal way of outlining only because it takes me a really long time. I knew I wanted to make these eight episodes, but I never wrote a series. I have mainly been writing short and feature screenplays. So I decided to write ten points for each episode. Each point would represent different things that happen in the story. I got really excited. The story just flowed out of me. I set up a dinner for my friend to come over so I can pitch him the story. He and his girlfriend came over. My wife made dinner and we talked. I couldn't wait to get to the story. We ate then I pitched. It didn't go as great as I planned. I could tell my friend wasn't excited as I was. I think he was looking for a Magnum, P.I. type of story. I couldn't help the idea that came out of me. It was just so naturally. The story may have not been greenlit by my friend but I at least got the story out of it. My wife's very excited and cannot wait to produce it.
