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 pilotsare produced. There are dozens of terrific, cherished, sweated-over passion projects that have never seen the light of day... until now.

Ben Blacker (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.

The September 14th show stars Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men), Mary McCormack (In Plain Sight), Michaela Watkins (The Unicorn, Casual), Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains), Hannah Simone (New Girl), Felicia Day (Supernatural, The Magicians), Casey Wilson (Black Monday, Happy Endings) and more.

Reading pilots by Dan Sterling (The Office; Girls), Jennifer Crittenden & Gabrielle Allen (Veep; Arrested Development), and Jeff Greenstein (Friends; Desperate Housewives).

A portion of the proceeds benefits the Writers Guild Foundation.

The whims of production are fickle, and actors' availability is subject to change. No refunds or returns.
