What is the feeling Mark Burnett would like to have after presenting "On the Lot" and "Pirate Master" this summer?

While that may be true, "Amnesia" is the name of a TV show that Mr. Burnett is developing. JMBP, Inc. (J. Mark Burnett Productions) filed documents with the USPTO on June 11, 2007 to protect the word mark Amnesia for "entertainment services in the nature of a television series."

Looking at the JMBP shows in development, I reckon the "Untitled Paul McKenna Project" is the show most likely to be called "Amnesia." Mr. McKenna has used "hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming, and other techniques to assist people with phobias, such as agoraphobia and addictions to gambling and shopping" on the 2005 British show, "I Can Change Your Life." It almost seems natural he would use similar techniques to make people forget something. I've had no confirmation of this thought and it's pure conjecture on my part. "Amnesia" could simply be a show that has not yet been announced.
