Watch Sarah Silverman’s Unaired, Failed NBC Pilot

All the way back in the unforgettable spring of 2012, Sarah Silverman shot a pilot for NBC about a woman who returns to her old apartment after a ten-year relationship ends. It co-starred Tig Notaro, June Diane Raphael, and Harris Wittels, and obviously was not picked up. The studio that owned it, however, was nice enough to let Silverman put the entire thing up on her YouTube channel. Entitled Susan 313, it's a pretty good approximation of Silverman's comedic voice, just a little mainstreamed to make sense as a traditional network sitcom. It's funny in moments and naked in other moments. Jeff Goldblum makes a cameo, which is never a bad thing. It might be too late, but maybe if a lot of people send their pubes to NBC, they'll change their mind and give it a series order.
