Sarah Silverman Brings Failed NBC Pilot to YouTube
YouTube. Home of cat videos, fail videos, and cat-fail videos. A place where the strangest, most polarizing content can not only live, but thrive. Sometimes YouTube is a place where the misfits of online video go to find sanctuary, and sometimes it’s a place to air failed NBC pilots. Wait, let me check that last one… yep, failed NBC pilots.
With permission from 20th Century Fox, comedian Sarah Silverman recently posted the pilot episode for her ill-fated NBC series “Susan 313.” Silverman kicks off the pilot with an intro in which she explains that NBC “probably did the right thing” when they passed on the show.
However, Silverman also explains that she is posting it within the Jash YouTube network because “we liked the show.” The “we” Silverman is probably referring to are writers Dan Sterling and Jon Schroeder; director Ken Kwapis, and the slew of comedians who appear in the pilot.
Check it out below, it’s pretty great. NBC, what have you done?
