Remember Aquaman? No? Not surprising really. Almost no one’s seen it until today, because it was a failed pilot for new network The CW. But in a move that echoes Nobody’s Watching‘s emergence on YouTube, NBC is selling it on iTunes in the US.
Could this be the way of the future? Networks making money from pilots they never even turned into series?
I hope not. When you consider some of the shows that do become series, you have to wonder how bad some of those failed pilots have to be to avoid being turned into series. And then be asked to pay to for them? No thank you.
