That would be AWESOME if there was a show only about Klingons. They could show Star Trek from a whole different perspective. People would think of the Klingon's enemies as the bad guys and the Klingons as the good guys because they would see the Klingons views. Maybe they could even have some shows where they only spoke in tlhIngan Hol! It would just be awesome. Who agrees?  Smiley

A Klingon TV Show or a movie would be great. But first we need a story, in Klingon of course, and actors who can be coached by the likes of Marc Okrand. Maybe if someone can write a story that is adaptable or ready for the Big Screen and some producers (probably Paraborg because they copyrighted the language, in fact they should be called FerengiMount Pictures  Smiley ) will boldly put their money into a project where movie-finances have never gone before: The Klingon Empire.....
As for the actors: it will be easy to find people willing to eat living bloodworms, fight sabre bears and wield bathlets.
And once the movie quv 'Iwghargh je honor and bloodworm, is a success there soon will be a tv show.

Speaking from experience, it's easier to get actors to learn to speak Klingon than to get Klingon-speakers to become actors.  Smiley

I produce songs and movies in Klingon (http://teresh.tdonnelly.org).  The latest song needed a chorus and some speaking roles.  For the most part, I had more success calling on my actor friends than on my Klingon ones (I hope none of them read this and take offense!).

As an actor, and a Shakespearean actor at that, it took me a good while to learn a monologue, or rather Hamlet's To Be or Not To Be soliloquy in tlhingan Hol. I learned half of it in an embarrassingly long time, but when push came to shove, I learned the other half in two weeks. I mention all this because I must say it takes at least twice as long to memorize something when it's in a foreign language, especially one like Klingon with few (accurately) spoken reference points available (in popular media), but the difficulty should never deter us, actors or not, from learning and absorbing more so as to better promote the Klingon language.
Also, here's da soliloquy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CiRMGYQfXrs

Of course, you shouldn't just memorize it, you should know what it means, so you can put feeling into it. The actors would have to memorize it in their language and then in tlhIngan Hol.

But of course. I found transliterating the tlhingan Hol back to english helped immensely in drawing a bead on the thought process from word to word, or rather, phrase to phrase.
