Pilot Study 031: Untitled Kanye West HBO Project

News / Pilot Study / Podcast / September 9, 2016

“Unaired” month continues with a look at Kanye West’s mysterious HBO pilot. The pilot has only been publicly displayed once, by co-star Wyatt Cenac, which makes for a fascinating dive into the history and lone 3 minutes available online. We talk its relation to “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” director Larry Charles and somehow, Tom Cruise.

Next week, we talk the new Donald Glover series, “Atlanta.”

Note: I’m sick. My apologies.
