The Night of 1,000 Pilots was a special by Adult Swim on May 13, 2007.
The special was a run of five brand new Williams Street pilot episodes. Users could vote online for their favorite show and help decide which shows were picked up.
The five pilots were:
- Fat Guy Stuck in Internet
- Let's Fish
- Bunny Love - Superjail!
- That Crook'd 'Sipp
- Pilot - The Drinky Crow Show
The special was initially successful, with four of the five pilots being greenlit for new series. However, only three series made it to television, and two of the new series were canceled after their first seasons ended. Superjail! was first in the online vote, followed by The Drinky Crow Show, Fat Guy Stuck In Internet, That Crook'd 'Sipp and Let's Fish.
Fat Guy Stuck In Internet
Fat Guy Stuck In Internet was greenlit for a full season, which debuted on June 22, 2008 and ended August 17, 2008. The show was poorly received, and was not renewed for a second season.
Superjail! was greenlit for a full season, which debuted on September 28, 2008 and ended on December 7, 2008. While the show was well received, it sat in limbo for more than a year. In November 2009, an Adult Swim bump revealed that the show was picked up and scripts are still being written. The show is believed to air in Winter 2010 or early 2011. Superjail! is currently the only Night of 1,000 Pilots show that has not been canceled.
That Crook'd 'Sipp
That Crook'd 'Sipp was greenlit for a full season, but the show never aired. After being greenlit, the idea for the show was scrapped. Eventually, the idea was reworked, and eventually became the special Freaknik: The Musical, starring Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and T-Pain, which aired March 7, 2010.
The Drinky Crow Show
The Drinky Crow Show was greenlit for a full season, which debuted on November 23, 2008 and ended January 25, 2009. The show recieved mixed reviews, and, after a few months, Adult Swim declined to renew it for a second season.
