In Dead Pilots Society, scripts that were developed by studios and networks but were never produced are given the table reads they deserve. Starring actors you know and love from television and film, a live audience, and a good time in which no one gets notes, no one is fired, and everyone laughs. Presented by Andrew Reich (Friends; Worst Week) and Ben Blacker (The Writers Panel podcast; co-creator, Thrilling Adventure Hour).

Entertaining and Informative

Not only does each episode feature a live script reading by many familiar voices from the greater improv podcasts universe, it also gives insight into how the pilot-writing process works. I’m not exactly an aspiring comedy writer, but I find the behind-the-scenes talk and interviews with the writers just as engaging as the show itself. If you enjoy The Thrilling Adventure Hour, Superego, Spontaneanation, and anything else that’s appeared at Sketchfest, you will certainly enjoy this podcast.

Great show

Love this concept, wish I could attend the live show but the podcast is a wonderful substitute.

More of this, please! ,

Sound issues otherwise great

If you can get passed the sound quality, this podcast is great. I love listening to readings of these pilots but it seems like not everybody’s mic is on. I’m constantly adjusting the volume on my speaker to pick up one actor’s voice only to have to turn it down a second later because another actor is blowing it out. The host also is always louder than the actors or writer he’s interviewing. Also, I usually end up skipping through a great deal of the host long winded chit chat, it gets a little unnecessary and he often talks over the folks he’s interviewing.
