TV series proposed based on management consultants?

Fiona Czerniawska, writing at The Source for Consultants, reports on the news of a show that focuses on the adventures of a management consulting firm. Then she offers her own pitches for consulting TV shows, which are probably funnier than the show that will actually air.

The news that American TV company Showtime is launching a new comedy series about management consultants, subtly entitled House of Lies makes for a depressing start to the year for anyone working in the consulting industry.  But it’s also a timely reminder that any attempts to improve the image of management consultants in the media (clients’ views and would-be recruits into the industry are different) will need to engage people’s hearts as well as their minds.
