The CW Pilot You Were Never Supposed To See

The CW's fall pilot Body Politic was not picked up by the network, but there has been a groundswell of support on the net from people who have seen it and want The CW to reverse its decision and get it on the air as a mid-season replacement. You can count me among them. Clips that I have seen of Body Politic look promising.

Body Politic tells the story of Washington, D.C. politics through the eyes of up-and-coming staffers. According to sources on the web, the pilot which features Jason Dohring (Veronica Mars), Gabrielle Union (Life), Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), Jay Hernandez (Six Degrees) and Tim Matheson (The West Wing), among others is not completely dead, but is a long shot to be revived. A Gossip Girl spinoff is still held in higher regard and of the two options would likely make the cut before Body Politic.

You can check out clips of the pilot here and judge for yourself.
