Enjoy pilot episodes? You can watch the beginnings of four classic Fox TV shows — The Bernie Mac Show, Malcolm in the Middle, Futurama and Cedric the Entertainer – on Fox’s Twitter feed starting at 6:30 pm ET today.
After those shows end at 8 pm, Fox will run the pilot of its new sitcom REL for 72 straight hours – until its Sunday premiere on broadcast stations, immediately following NFL football in all time zones.
We’re disappointed, though, that Fox didn’t dig up the pilot of The Sinbad Show, a not-quite-classic sitcom celebrating its 25th anniversary, since Sinbad himself has a supporting role in REL.
Sinbad plays the dad of newly single Rel (Lil Rel Howery of The Carmichael Show and Get Out), who’s rebuilding his life after his separated wife and their children have moved to another city. Jessica “Jess Hilarious” Moore (Wild ‘N Out) and Jordan L. Jones (NCIS: Los Angeles) complete the ensemble cast as Rel’s best friend and younger brother respectively.
Since Fox isn’t showing it today on Twitter, here’s the pilot of The Sinbad Show, also starring future movie star Salma Hayek:
