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).

Funny and entertaining
Great writers and actors bring to life pilots that never got to see the light of day. So refreshingly funny. Wonderful material that deserves to be heard, even if it's never seen.
Frustrating in the best way possible.
Hearing the various histories of these scripts is fascinating. Be warned that you will find yourself wondering when the next episode of "script x" is occuring next, only to sadly realize that it never will!
What a great podcast. Very insightful and has an excellent voice cast. Right up my alley. Only drawback is everyone sounds like they're talking in a long hallway.
