Many TV shows that would be great never make it to air. Dead Pilot’s Society is an ode to those shows, taking their unproduced scripts and letting them see the light of day. With access to many of the best-unproduced scripts in the TV world, Dead Pilot’s Society produces a table reading for each of them.
The Hosts: It should be no surprise to learn that the hosts of Dead Pilot’s Society have worked in TV. Ben Blacker is a writer and producer and has worked on hit CW show Supernatural. He also hosts The Writer’s Panel podcast. Andrew Reich is also a writer and producer with his work on Friends adding gravitas to his resume.
The Guests: When doing table readings, you need a full table. Especially with some of these shows reaching Friends numbers in the cast. To fill out the table, Ben and Andrew reach out to comedians, actors, and anyone else you might find in a TV show. Dead Pilot’s Society has broadcasted from major conventions, which has seen even more added to the fray. You might recognize some names as the cast rotates from week to week, especially if you keep up with entertainment news.
Why You Have to Listen: Playing a TV producer is very fun, and Dead Pilot’s Society is an easy way to do it. This podcast pulls back the curtain on what’s going on in the TV industry, and what great words are left as unproduced scripts. You might discover a writer you love, or a show you wish would’ve been made. Or you might just find a cool story every week.
