Pilot Study 028: Clerks

News / Pilot Study / Podcast / August 18, 2016

We kick off our “Unaired” theme month with the previously lost pilot for Clerks, the sitcom (+ laugh track) adaptation of the Kevin Smith film. Jim Breuer makes a pre-SNL appearance, the writers can’t use Jay or Silent Bob and Keri Russell even makes an appearance as typical ’90s bimbo.

Special guest Nick Spacek (Modern Vinyl/From & Inspired By) talks the show with us and impresses with his round of The IMDB game.
