Dozens of TV show pilots are written every year, and most don't get to see the light of day. Until now. "Friends" writer Andrew Reich and Nerdist Writers Panel creator Ben Blacker (Thrilling Adventure Hour) have invited their writer pals to bring out their dead pilots for a series of table reads called Dead Pilots' Society, now available as a podcast on the Maximum Fun network. Featuring scripts by top writers that were never produced because of the questionable judgment of networks and development executives, DPS lets these brilliant, promise-filled scripts be enjoyed by you, the public, performed by top actors.No notes. No one gets fired. We all laugh. $25
