Every year, hundreds of pilots are bought by television networks. Only a handful of those pilotsare produced. There are dozens of terrific, cherished, sweated-over passion projects that have never seen the light of day… until now.
Ben Blacker (The Thrilling Adventure Hour) and Andrew Reich (Friends) bring you Dead Pilots Society, in which pilots passed over by the networks finally get their due.
There are no notes, no one gets fired, and everyone has a good time.
The September 14th show stars Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls), Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men), Mary McCormack (In Plain Sight), Tim Simons (Veep), Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains), Hannah Simone (New Girl), Kimiko Glenn (Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse) and more to be announced!
