    Looks promising enough but I'm not sure if it'll get a whole ton of people liking it.

    Perhaps it'd be good under Scott Rudin's hand; plus the acutal doc seems quite interesting in it's own right.

    Does this really leave a lot of room for an entire television series? Would each episode focus on a different developer, or multiple developers discussing/dealing with a particular topic?

    Getting indie developers onto the show shouldn't be a hassle; it's free advertising after all. Getting people to watch it, though, might be much more difficult.
