Watch Rachel Dratch as Jenna in '30 Rock's Original Unaired Pilot

Back in 2006, when 30 Rock's original pilot was being developed and produced, Tina Fey's longtime SNL and Second City collaborator Rachel Dratch was cast as Jenna DeCarlo, the star of TGS, the show-within-the-show. A second pilot was then commissioned and shot with Jane Krakowski replacing Dratch and the role (and the show) being changed drastically. Now, Popfocal has compiled all of Rachel Dratch's scenes from the original pilot into this video, and it's a pretty astounding to see how different the show was and would have been with Dratch in the role. Don't worry though, Tracy Morgan is still playing Tracy Jordan.

      No kidding, I just checked the "created" date on the one I downloaded and it says May 2008.
