Dead Pilots Society

In Dead Pilots Society, scripts that were developed by studios and networks but were never produced are given the table reads they deserve. Starring actors you know and love from television and film, a live audience, and a good time in which no one gets notes, no one is fired, and everyone laughs. Presented by Andrew Reich (Friends; Worst Week) and Ben Blacker (The Writers Panel podcast; co-creator, Thrilling Adventure Hour).

Dead Pilots Society: live reads of dead pilots by your favorite actors

Every year, hundreds of pilots are bought by television networks. Only a handful of those pilots are produced. There are dozens of terrific, cherished, sweated-over passion projects that have never seen the light of day… until now.
Ben Blacker (co-creator, 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.

On March 11, 2pm, we’re thrilled to present dead pilots by:

Abby Kohn & Marc Silverstein (Never Been Kissed; He’s Just Not That Into You)
Phil Hay & Matt Manfredi (Ride Along; The Invitation)
Elizabeth Laime (Totally Laime; Totally Married; Totally Mommy)
