Wes Craven's pilot for a show ahead of its time predicting stuff like FreakyLinks, Veronica Mars and Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television
Sometimes TV pilots are just bad, but sometimes they are ahead of their time and predict classic future shows that came out at the right time. The plot about three filmmakers solving crimes in Hollywood for their true crime documentary show very much plays like proto-FreakyLinks, Veronica Mars, Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television and possibly even Castle. The show is primarily a dark satirical comedy combined with a whodunit-ish mystery, serial killer thriller and some horror elements. The show makes mistakes like going overboard with a joke about dead musicians and not really doing anything original with the mystery. However, it's shot well, the cast is fun (especially Melissa George, who gives a passionate performance) and 90s-ness is very much present in all aspects of the pilot. Some spoofs of famous movie scenes, fun dialogue filled with film references and mostly lively direction help the show as well. Check it out if you get the chance.
