Zoom was a children's live-action TV series that originally ran on PBS and was produced by WGBH (now GBH) from 1972-1978, and ran a revival series from 1999-2005. The series consists of a group of children cast members that based on the idea they give, do a variety of types of experiments, games, skits and other miscellaneous activities.

Pilot[edit | edit source]

In 1997, a pilot was developed to pitch the revival to the network. The pilot was developed by Kate Taylor that also produced the 1972 iteration of the show.[1] She also mentioned kids reacting positively to the pilot.[2] The National Science Foundation then endorsed it and donated a grant to Taylor to develop episodes for the show's reboot.

Availability[edit | edit source]

In 2017, YouTuber ZOOMfan1 uploaded two clips of the pilot that was sent to them by one of the cast members, Hayley after said user contacted her. Nothing much was changed from the final show aside from a different theme song and the test logo looked similar to the 1972 iteration of the show. On June 20th, 2022, the pilot was uploaded in full to YouTube by user PoopToobYou.
