When I heard that Diddy's former pretend butler and sometime R&B recording artist Fonzworth Bentley would be turning 14 "gangsters" into old timey upperclassmen on a reality show called From G's to Gents for MTV, I could only imagine this is how the sole creative meeting for it went down:

MTV Suits: "Hey Fonzworth!"
Fonzworth: (In best Jeeves voice) "Oh, helloo there, gentlemen. I'm so glad you rang. I was just ironing Diddy's monogrammed handkerchiefs. How do you do?"
MTV Suits: "Oh we're pretty good. Anyway, we caught a few Garry Marshall movies on Starz HD the other night and we were thinking, that Hector Elizondo guy sure reminds us of you. He's an actor playing a butler too, but he also takes all these girls and turns them into ladies! People like that sort of thing, so do you want to make a show out of it?"
Fonzworth: "Oh my, well, I'm flattered of course. But isn't that already a show hosted by that lovely Mo'Nique woman? Charm School, I believe it's called?"
MTV Suits: "Oh yeah. Haha, I guess we should already know that! OK, how about your show is about dudes who are self-proclaimed gangsters and you can teach them about cricket and how to drink tea and read and stuff? You know, like all those Hugh Grant characters do in those Oscar movies."
Fonzworth: "Umm. Do I get paid or what?"
MTV Suits: "Sure! We'll give anybody money!"
Fonzworth: "Oh, gentleman, this show will be sublime!"

From G's to Gents premieres July 15 on MTV, lords and ladies.
