About the Podcast

In Dead Pilots Society, scripts that were developed by studios and networks but were never produced are given the table reads they deserve. Starring actors you know and love from television and film, a live audience, and a good time in which no one gets notes, no one is fired, and everyone laughs. Presented by Andrew Reich (Friends; Worst Week) and Ben Blacker (The Writers Panel podcast; co-creator, Thrilling Adventure Hour).

About the Host

Andrew Reich and Ben Blacker

Growing up in New Jersey, Andrew Reich’s comedy sensibility was formed by The Young Ones, the Marx Brothers, the Zucker Brothers, Night Shift, Adrenalin O.D., Author Author, Love and Death, Jack Douglas, Blazing Saddles, Not Brand Echh, and The Jerk. After moving to Los Angeles, Andrew was hired as a writer on Friends, where he rose through the ranks to become a showrunner and executive producer on the show and received a slew of Emmys for his work (slew = one). After Friends ended, Andrew went on to work on Worst Week, Rules of Engagement, and several other timeless classics. He produced pilots that didn't make it to series which starred Zac Efron, Candice Bergen, Zachary Levi, Jane Lynch and Jennifer Coolidge. He also sold many pilots to networks that were never produced, an experience that inspired him to create Dead Pilots Society. He loves giving writers a chance to hear their beloved scripts read out loud by great actors, and thanks all of you for supporting the show. Ben Blacker is a writer, creator, and producer.
