** It was meant to be a backdoor pilot for an X-Men show that never got off the ground, but strangely enough, [[WolverinePublicity did not include Wolverine]]. It would've had Comicbook/{{Cyclops}}, ComicBook/{{Storm}}, Kitty Pryde, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Thunderbird and MsMarvel ([[AdaptationNameChange renamed]] "Lady Lightning") as [[HighSchoolAU teenagers attending a public high school]] rather than the Xavier Institute.

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII: The Frozen Throne's'' bonus campaign "The Founding of Durotar", with its shift from RTS to RPG gameplay, was a PoorlyDisguisedPilot for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. The quest driven nature was rare for MMORPGs at the time, but was planned as a major feature of World of Warcraft, and it even features the Resurrection Stones that were originally going to be in World of Warcraft before the death system was revamped (the stones ultimately became Meeting Stones).

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' had an episode in their fifth season that was an episode of the ShowWithinAShow ''Crash Nebula''. It was actually a pilot for a proposed spin-off, but plans never got off the ground.

* WonderWoman will make her cinematic debut in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' in order to set up a solo ''Wonder Woman'' movie starring the same actress.

Episode in which the show's primary characters take a back seat to secondary or, more likely, brand new characters in order to test the waters for a separate show. Differs from the traditional {{Spinoff}} in that the characters are clearly jammed in there just for the sake of the new show; it's not a matter of primary characters becoming popular enough to break out on their own. Not many of these pilots get picked up, however.

** Earlier, in the late 1960s, Marvel did it with "Marvel Super-Heroes", a larger-than-normal comic whose lead feature launched such stars as ComicBook/CaptainMarVell, [=KaZar=], and the GuardiansOfTheGalaxy, with classic 1940s and 50s stories backing it up!
