How much is Madge paying ABC to get Guy out of the house?

English director Guy Ritchie is venturing into television with "Suspects," an ABC drama pilot that he will direct and executive produce. "Suspects" is a procedural crime drama that tells the story of each suspect in a recently committed crime until the truth about which one of them committed the crime is revealed.

Ritchie is best known for writing and directing "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch," as well as the infamous remake of "Swept Away," starring his wife, Madonna.

This is exactly the kind of show I like, and I will state unequivocally, right now, that Suspect will totally suck. Maybe Guy used up all his talent on Snatch and Lock, Stock. Maybe Madonna has sucked all the life blood out of him. Or maybe he is a one trick pony, but there is zero chance that this show will be watchable.

My guess would be that Madonna has sucked the life blood out of him. But also, Ritchie has a distinct directing style, and I'm not sure it will translate well to TV.

It will make a nice change for him from babysitting the African orphan.

Haha its funny how Guy's career pretty much tanked when he married Madonna.

I haven't seen any of his work. But I'm going to agree and say this thing is going to suck. Big time.

Getting him a job and out of the house is probably less paperwork than a divorce. And she still gets to see less of him. She's a crafty woman.

So, is he moving to California while Madge stays in London?

I agree. His show will blow.

I'm going to say that this will be a great show and if Guy Ritchie wants to stay with me while filming in Los Angeles, he's more than welcome. As long as he doesn't snore.
