Flashback: Watch the Pilot for a 'Clerks' TV Show That Never Aired

Tue, 08/04/2015 - 07:11

Looking to feed off the success of Kevin Smith's indie sensation Clerks, a pilot was ordered in the mid-'90s for a more sanitized TV show featuring the same main characters (Dante and Randal), a mini-mart setting and a laugh track.
