During pilot season, the networks try out a multitude of different shows before ultimately deciding which ones to pick up for more episodes. Some of these go on to be hits, but we almost never see the pilots that didn’t get picked up.
Enter “Super Clyde,” a comedy pilot from My Name Is Earl‘s Greg Garcia about a young boy that inherits a lot of money and wants to use it as a force for good. Set to star Harry Potter‘s Rupert Grint and famed British comedian Stephen Fry, the pilot ultimately went nowhere, but in a rare move CBS has put the pilot online. You can watch the pilot in its entirety by clicking here.
In addition, here’s a statement from Greg Garcia on the pilot:
I shot a pilot for CBS called Super Clyde this spring and it didn’t wind up on their fall schedule. But the good people at CBS have been kind enough to make the pilot available online.
I’m really proud of this show. Mike Fresco did an amazing job directing and the cast is great. Rupert Grint, Stephen Fry, Tyler Labine and Justine Lupe.
If you want to kill 20 minutes at work click on the link and check it out.
Also, if you tweet and feel compelled to let other people know the pilot is out there, please do.
Okay, that’s it. Please forgive me for the shameless self-promotion but a lot of people worked really hard on the pilot and I think it deserves to be seen.
Check out the pilot and then come back here for discuss it!
