The year is 2006, and five years after the release of the successful spoof film "Not Another Teen Movie," it was decided a TV spinoff of the film was a good idea. And so, Comedy Central ordered up a pilot for "Not Another High School Show," and the reason you don't remember it is because the network declined to order a full season. Now you can see why.

Not Another High School Show

The year was 2006, and five years after the release of the successful spoof film "Not Another Teen Movie," it was decided a TV spinoff of the film was a good idea. And so, Comedy Central ordered up a pilot for "Not Another High School Show," and the reason you don't remember it is because the network declined to order a full season. Now you can see why.

On the occasion of Jennifer Lawrence's birthday today, a clip is going around the web (via Defamer) of a scene from the high school parody show in which she cameos. But more interesting is watching Alison Brie stretch the broad comedic muscles she would bring to "Community" three years later. Brie does what she can with dead-on-arrival material. Meanwhile, another clip from the show featuring Jeffrey Christopher Todd, Anna Osceola, and John Keefe has been online for a while, and it isn't so great either.

But it never got that far, so all we're left with is memories.... Watch below.
