far too long. You need something that's snappy that everyone can remember

yes, just do a title and underneath you type...Working Title. That will tell the TV companies you haven't made your mind up about it

We thought maybe 'Eyeliner' as a title. Because 2 of the characters wear it.

I'm no expert but I would say it needs to relate to the show as a whole, Eyeliner just refers to the fact that they wear eyeliner.

Think what the show is about and try to find something which relates to that.

For example: Porridge, Men Behaving Badly, Only Fools And Horses, Steptoe And Son. These are all short and refer to the main subject of the show.

But Eyeliner relates more than it seems to, because one of the main characters is a transvestite xD

I don't mind Eyeliner as a title, actually.

Does anyone have a good name for my upcoming animated sitcom?
The series is basically about professional wrestlers and other random people working in an office job.

Really depends on the tone, but if it's a bit of a carry on: Slap and tickle ?
