Alison Brie and Jennifer Lawrence almost starred in a terrible-looking spoof high school TV show.
Alison Brie as... Ugh... Muffy the Vampire Slayer.
I would like to point out that at some point in 2007, a young, unknown actress named Alison Brie was terribly sad because Comedy Central passed on this pilot for Not Another High School Show:
You see, she was going to be one of the leads in this weekly spoof-fest from the guys who brought us Not Another Teen Movie. She was Muffy the Vampire Slayer. This was going to be her break out role! This was going to be the show that made her a star. But with one stroke of a pen, the suits at Comedy Central destroyed all of her hopes and dreams.
Now what was she going to do? She had a bit part on some junky little show about advertisers in the '60s, but that was on some crappy cable network known mostly for round-the-clock showing of Uncle Buck. So, how long was that gonna last? What were the odds that she would land herself on another quirky, pop-culture-obsessed, ensemble sitcom with such potential for cult status?
No, this was it. Not Another High School Show was her chance. So, you can only imagine how despondent she was.
Plus, I'm sure this chick named Jennifer Lawrence who turns up at 1:43 as "Frantic Girl" was kind of cut up, as well.
