Sarah Silverman‘s NBC pilot “Susan 313” never made it to air, but thanks to the generosity of the television studio that produced it, the show is available to any curious viewers through Silverman’s YouTube channel, Jash.
“This isn’t like, ‘Can you believe they didn’t pick this up?’ This isn’t that kind of posting. It’s like, ‘They probably did the right thing, but we liked the show,'” Silverman explains in the episode’s introduction (above) to the world. “So enjoy it.”
The proposed sitcom stars Silverman as a woman who breaks up with her boyfriend of 10 years, and immediately moves out of their Connecticut home, back to her old apartment building.
Stand up star Tig Notaro, June Diane Raphael (“Burning Love”), “Parks and Recreation” writer Harris Wittels and Jeff Goldblum are among Silverman’s supporting cast.
So did NBC make the right decision? Or should “Susan 313” have replaced one of these two quickly cancelled series?
