30 – My Mother the Car (1965) Retrospective & What’s Next

We’re looking back at My Mother The Car from last week and previewing our next pilot: 1999’s Heat Vision and Jack!

In 1999, Fox ordered a pilot from Rob Schrab and Dan Harmon, starring Jack Black and Owen Wilson. The show was a parody of 1970’s action shows like Six Million Dollar Man, where Jack Black played Jack Austin, a NASA astronaut who was exposed to solar radiation and became a genius, while his best friend Doug (Owen Wilson) was merged with his motorcycle. The two traveled America solving paranormal crimes.

About Charmed (1998)

After Buffy The Vampire Slayer moved to UPN in the late 1990s, The WB network was looking for a magical replacement, so they turned to Aaron Spelling and Spelling Television and they came up with Charmed, a series about 3 sistes who discover they’re The Charmed Ones, three women who were prophesied to be the strongest witches ever. While the series was immensely successful, there was trouble behind the scenes between Shannon Doherty and Alyssa Milano.

If you want to watch Charmed (2018)’s pilot, you can watch it on Amazon, iTunes or through the CW app:

About Charmed (2018)

CBS tried to reboot Charmed in 2013, but the script never got filmed. However, in 2018 the CW network decided to go ahead with a new pilot that would air 20 years to the day after the original series. The new series is set in a new fictional town and focuses on women of color with a heavy focus on feminism. The reboot has been met with much skepticism from the original show’s cast.

About Star Trek (1965)

In 1965, NBC ordered a pilot for a new series called Star Trek with a pilot called “The Cage.” It had a cast that was almost entirely different than the series we all know, other than Leonard Nimoy and Majel Barrett. The pilot was considered too cerebral and didn’t have enough action, so NBC never aired it, opting to order a new pilot which would star the familiar original series cast with William Shatner, DeForrest Kelley, Leonard Nimoy, Walter Koenig and George Takei.
