Episode 51 - Widow written by Leila Cohan-Miccio (Santa Clarita Diet, Awkward)

Episode Summary

Ben Blacker and Andrew Reich bring you Dead Pilots Society, a podcast in which pilots passed over by the networks finally get their due.

Episode Notes

This month's episode is WIDOW written by Leila Cohan-Miccio (Santa Clarita Diet, Awkward). It follows Rachel, a young woman whose husband dies while they’re in the middle of a rough patch. Rachel does not handle it well. In Andrew’s interview with Leila you’ll hear her insane story about development hell and the frustrating double standard executives put on female characters. Leila’s start into comedy writing and a quick dish on pitching shows on zoom. Leila’s a real example of the determination and perseverance needed to succeed in Hollywood. This is a good one! Enjoy it!

WIDOW stars D'Arcy Carden as Rachel, Cory Michael Smith as Jake, Punam Patel as Daisy, Arturo del Puerto as Emmett, Julia Duffy as Wendy, Kathreen Khavari as Hannah, Eric Edelstein as Miles/Officer #1, Sandeep Parikh as Levi/Officer #2/ Uber Driver, Noah Findling as George, and Andrew Reich with Stage Directions.
