Pilot Week! - “Pilot Season”

While most people look fondly on this time of year as the beginning of Spring, in Hollywood it is Pilot Season. Pilot Season is when the television networks produce sample episodes of programs they’re considering for Fall. From the thousands of scripts the network receives each year, hundreds get evaluated and a handful actually get produced as pilots. Despite spending millions of dollars on these pilots, only a fraction of them will ever air. This week, we take a look at the crazy world of pilots.

The original ‘Empty Nest’ Pilot did not feature Richard Mulligan.
