Jesse Alexander's The Saint.
"The way they pick TV shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that one show to the people who pick shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they want to make more shows. Some get chosen and become television programs. Some don't, become nothing." -Jules, Pulp Fiction
Star Trek: Discovery writer Jesse Alexander wrote one of the ones that became nothing. That show was a remake of the Roger Moore classic, The Saint. But unlike the pilot that Mia Wallace starred in, The Saint has been expanded to feature length, and released as a direct-to-video movie starring Adam Rayner and Eliza Dushku.
In this episode of Stage Nine, John and Mike take a look at The Saint. We discuss our limited history with the franchise, the pilot's peculiar structure, and what it may have been like in its original form.
