The Hillbillies of Beverly Hills

In 1962, Paul Henning pitched an idea for a sitcom about a family of Ozark hillbillies who struck oil and moved to the big city. CBS ordered a pilot to be made, which was never aired, but set up the concept of The Beverly Hillbillies. The first aired episode told the same story with the same characters, but was re-recorded. The name of the series was improved, too. (via Boing Boing)
