Scratch that..

After talking to a very helpful John P. McCann, I've decided to start from the bottom, and work my way up.
Here is a sample log line:
"When the director of a traveling show wants to make it big in america, he must first confront his slightly depressing past with the opposing show who will stop at nothing to shut them down."
Just a test, many more will come in the next few days.
So, here is my next attempt on a full summary, using a sort of 'checklist'
1.Who are the characters?
Short Answer-The members of a traveling show

Long Answer-They are the three members of an american traveling show. The Director of the group is Chuck Fesant; An old timer who is as sharp as a tack when it comes to entertainment, and wants to bring back the spirit of performance, and clever writing back to america. Rutherferd; the show's main actor (Note, the group has several actors, but i'm just talking about the main characters), a sly, smart, witty, high spirited rabbit who wants nothing more than to please everyone around him, but sometimes tries too hard. Linda; the main writer for the show, a very focused rabbit who takes a lot of pride in her work, and doesn't like to put up with nonsense, but somehow, wound up in a group with Rutherferd.

2.What do they want?
To make it big in america

3.What stops them from getting it?
A competing traveling show, also the heads of a major movie studio, has a past with Chuck Fesant.

4.Who are these characters to each other?
Rutherferd and Linda went to college together, they were originally are from London, but moved to america when they wanted to start a show, which is how they met chuck who was a retired director and wanted to get back in directing, story and sketch writing so he tagged along with them.

A short, and better approach then my previous posts. In the next few days, or months, i have to get them back from a friend of mind, I'll post a treatment of my first episode. It explains a little bit better the relationship between the main characters, and i don't want to give too much away now, so i'll try to have them up soon.
