Whatever comes to mind, and then the interesting directions that thought will take you on the web.

I'm a big fan of the TV show Survivor.

The show is often criticized for its editing - ie the producers pick the story they want to tell, and then edit in clips to support that.

So here's my suggestion: create a web site that has all the raw content available, and web based tools to edit and publish that content. This would enable fans to create their own edits of shows. These could then be published on You Tube in episode form. You could imagine that celebrity editors would emerge out of the community - people who put a new perspective on the show, and grew an audience.

That's the principle - some details would have to be worked out for the implementation. Seems like a revenue stream. As a pilot, make the raw content available from the first season, and see the perspectives that fans could create out of that content.
