It’s Max Fun Drive! The one time of year where all of the shows on the Maximum Fun Network reach out to you and ask you to become members or upgrade your membership to help make our show possible. We have an amazing and special Max Fun Drive episode for you this month! We’re bringing our first ever 1-hour dead pilot. Don’t worry! It’s not a dry police procedural or boring medical drama. It’s a funny update of the beloved eighties TV show Greatest American Hero. The pilot was written by Andy Bobrow (Community, Last Man On Earth, Brooklyn 99). The cast for this one is absolutely bonkers! It features Sam Richardson (Veep, After Party), Will Forte (Last Man On Earth, SNL), Stephen Root (Barry, Office Space, Dodgeball) Rachael Harris (The Hangover, Reno 911!), Romy Rosemont (Glee), Parisa Fitz-Henley (My Spy), Adam Paul (How I Met Your Mother), Robby Hoffman (The Chris Gethard Show) and Andrew Reich with stage directions.
If you don’t know already, MaxFunDrive is the one time a year where we ask you to support our show by donating and becoming a MaxFun Member. All Maximum Fun podcasts are audience supported. That means that our audience directly support and make our show possible month after month. With your new or upgrading Max Fun membership, you’ll get access to all of our bonus content along with the entire library of Maximum Fun bonus content. There’s a whole bunch of membership tiers that get you all different kinds of gifts too!
This year our bonus content includes all of the video from our table reads this past year. You can get it for as little as $5 by going to https://maximumfun.org/join

About the show
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).
