I'm having a hard time describing this 1995 pilot, "RVTV," that Second City dug up from its archives in a single sentence, which might have something to do with why it was never picked up. Let me try anyway: a 24-year-old Amy Poehler plays a "hacker" trying to deliver a subversive call-to-hacks message to other hackers...through the television. The ultimate goal is to disrupt Dan Rather's news broadcasts with any web videos people can send her. Apparently, web video was in short supply in 1995. She also breaks into rap frequently.
