“The Best Bathroom Reading EVER," - San Francisco Chronicle 

This lively and entertaining book looks at the three hundred best and worst TV series ideas—known in the industry as "pilots"—that never made it to primetime from 1955-1990. From the adventures of a Samurai D.A. to the antics of an invisible alien baby, Lee Goldberg reveals the most astonishing, funny, and bizarre shows that never were. 

"A must-browse for media freaks.” —USA Today 

“Irresistible and enthralling.” —Hartford Courant 

“Full of fool’s gold and genuine TV treasures.” —The New York Post 

“You’ll slap your head in disbelief—try not to hurt yourself—at the idea of John Denver as a singing FBI agent. You’ll wonder whether Joe Penny as a samurai district attorney would have been funnier—unintentionally—that John Belushi’s ‘Saturday Night Live.’ For tube-historians, this is a must see.” — People Magazine 

This book was previously published as "Unsold TV Pilots: The Greatest Shows You Never Saw" and "Unsold TV Pilots: The Almost Complete Guide To Everything You Never Saw on TV"
