Suicide Theater unsold tv pilot excerpt (film #5 on TV Turkeys (Rhino, 1987)). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

I don't understand why this show didn't sell. I mean, doesn't a weekly drama anthology on the subject of suicide sound like a great idea for a series (Warning! Sarcasm Alert!)? And the pilot even takes a humorous spin on the subject––it features a guy who's too poor to commit suicide (hyuck! hyuck!)! Just what kinds of drugs where those network executives taking when they came up with this idea? Of course, this makes it a must for ephemera collectors. I'm sure Ellen Corby put this on her resume when she auditioned for "The Waltons".

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: *****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
