In the show, psychiatrists will compete for profitable pimping opportunities with pharmaceutical companies – much like the Wellbutrin pimping that earned Dr. Drew a whopping $275,000 in just two month’s time. Click here for the full article on Dr. Drew’s profitable drug pimping
Contestants will each have 5 minutes to stand up before the audience and promote the virtues and possible ”off label” uses of dangerous psychiatric drugs.
The first episode shows one of the judges laughing hysterically and asking for Kleenex as a pediatric psychiatrist extolls the virtues of using Ritalin to alleviate menstrual cramps in 12 year old girls, Thalidomide for bad breath, Thorazine for teenage acne and Prozac for nocturnal emissions and razor burn in pubescent boys.
Rules require contestants to keep a straight face throughout their presentation, not fidget, include the phrase “evidence-based” at least 3 times and convince the jury of pharmaceutical executives that they are not speaking on behalf of a hidden “john.”
Bonus points are given for outrageous fabrications concerning drug trials and verbatum citations from medical journals.
Pimp My Drugs! promises to be a tasty entertainment dish on this fall’s lineup right along with Dancing With The Psychs.
