In Rare Move CBS Makes a Pilot It Didn’t Pick Up — Featuring One of the Stars of the ‘Harry Potter’ Films — Available for Millions to Watch

Most pilots that the networks don’t pick up never see the light of day. Or, at best, they may be run once over the summer.

But CBS has made one of the pilots it didn’t pick up this fall available for millions to see, according to our friend Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.

Writes Andreeva: "In a rare exception, CBS has put Greg Garcia‘s single-camera pilot ‘Super Clyde’ up online. … The move is a result from a request by Garcia, who sent out an email announcing the pilot’s availability. ‘Super Clyde’ was one of two pilots Garcia had at CBS this past season, with the other, the multicamera ‘The Millers,’ getting a series order."

The story adds: " ‘Super Clyde’ stars ‘Harry Potter’s’ Rupert Grint (who played Ron Weasley) as a shy comic book fanatic who discovers his calling after he inherits millions of dollars from his eccentric uncle."

  1. Interesting to see this pilot – but not hard to see why it wasn’t picked up. Not only does it seem a bad fit for CBS, it’s a waste of a talented cast of characters – not just Rupert Grint, but also Tyler Labine, who is playing the character as in “Repaer” – when he could do so much more. And Stephen Fry(!?) – what was he thinking?

  2. Rupert Grint and his alter ego, Super Clyde
    - who is an aspiring comic book superhero in plain clothes – are stunning.
