It’s not often that you get to see a pilot that never makes it to TV. Sarah Silverman is giving that opportunity, as she’s posted the pilot of “Susan 313,” a show she did for NBC that failed to become a series.
She’s joined by fellow funny people Harris Wittels, June Diane Raphael and Tig Notaro. What’s better, Jeff Goldblum is in there as well. The idea was loosely based on Sarah’s life, about a woman who just ended a 10-year relationship. Silverman was in a long-term relationship with Jimmy Kimmel, which ended in 2009.
Unfortunately, NBC passed on the show, which was shot for the 2012 TV season. However, it can now live forever online. The pilot is pretty funny and very uncomfortable, which Silverman excels at. There’s no telling how it would have fit in the NBC comedy lineup, but there’s a solid “Newhart” joke in there.
