In recent years it’s become pretty common for filmmakers to put together proof-of-concept trailers to give studio executives a visual aid for pitches. Sometimes they are edited together from a mash-up of existing movies (which is very time consuming), and other times they involve the filmmakers spending their own money and time to shoot it on spec for real (which is more costly). We’ve featured some of these on /Film in the past, including Kevin Tancharoen‘s pitch trailer for The Hunger Games.
While this is a common practice in the realm of film, its isn’t done too often in the world of television. Networks usually spend millions of dollars to cast and create pilot episodes, most of which are never aired to the public. So what you’re about to see after the jump is unique, a proof-of-concept pitch trailer for a television series that doesn’t yet exist.
