The Pilot Show

Show Summary

The Pilot Show is a 2003 British reality comedy TV show created by Paul Garner, directed by Janet Knipe and produced by Damon Beesley. The show lured minor celebrities and ordinary members of the public into appearing on their show under false pretenses. The creators of the show made the unknowing participants think they were auditioning for important television executives, actually actors, for an up and coming pilot television series. However, the real topic of the show centered around the actors being tricked into believing they were getting a chance to become successful television actors. In one instance, 30,000 British men responded to an opportunity to appear on a reality show "Lapdance Island." Unfortunately for the men, it was all a hoax created for The Pilot Show. Celebrities who appeared on the show include Sharon Horgan, Marc Wootton, Rob Rouse and Steve Oram. The Pilot Show first aired November 14, 2003 and its last orignal airing was December 19, 2003.
