Pilot Denied: Hannibal Buress’ ‘Unemployable’
Hannibal Burress has instantly become one of Comedy Central’s go-to comedians. He had a summertime hit series with Why?, is a regular on the network’s Broad City and has earned spots on FX and Adult Swim.
However, when it came to Burress pitching Unemployable, a comedic reality series, the “green light” turned dim and was rejected by the Comedy Central network.
