Jennifer Lawrence’s Failed Television Role Unearthed

Also starring: Alison Brie from “Community” and “Mad Men”

Remember when the Internet discovered an almost 20-year-old video clip of Jon Hamm as a contestant on a '90s dating show? Something similar – but rather less embarrassing – has happened to Jennifer Lawrence this weekend.

Uproxx recently unearthed a clip from the 2007 pilot for a television show called "Not Another High School Show" – a parody of popular teen TV dramas such as "Beverly Hills, 90210," "Dawson's Creek" and "Laguna Beach."

The series was apparently so awful that it was never picked up. However, it featured two actresses who became very popular in the course of seven years: Lawrence and Alison Brie.

While the Oscar-winner Lawrence has a sort of cameo in the clip, Brie – who is best-known for playing Annie Edison on the NBC sitcom "Community" and Trudy Campbell on the AMC drama "Mad Men" – appears to be the leading character.

She plays the role of Muffy, a teenager tasked with hunting down the legendary beast “Wolfis Teenaguis” in her high school halls.

Yeah, it’s as terrible as it sounds.

You can watch the complete pilot episode in the video above.
