A six-minute pitch tape (sometimes refereed to as the "unaired Angel Pilot") produced by Joss Whedon which was never intended to air, but employed in 1999 to show the WB Network the potential of Angel.

It contains clips of scenes later used in the Angel pilot, clips taken from Buffy and also footage later used in the Angel opening titles.


Angel stands on a skyscraper over night-time Los Angeles. He explains key moments in his history that eventually brought him to L.A.. Angel has not been in the city long. He promises to stir the waters and challenge powerful forces that have made great business out of people's despair.

Behind the scenes

  • VAST - Dirty Hole
  • VAST - Touched
  • VAST - I'm Dying


Doyle - "There's powerful forces out here. Agents of pure evil. They've made great business out of people's despair."
Angel - "They're not going to like me stirring up the waters."
Doyle - "What, and you're afraid of that?"
Angel - "I'm counting on that."
