'Rejected Pitches' Tackles 'Lord Of The Rings,' Just In Time For 'The Hobbit' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The second season of "Rejected Pitches" debuts today with their imagined meeting between "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson and some tone deaf Hollywood types.

J.R.R. Tolkien is one of the most acclaimed fantasy authors in modern history, but you have to admit that telling the story of "The Lord of the Rings" to a room full of dumb studio executives might not yield the best results. That's exactly what happens in this "Rejected Pitches" sketch, wherein Peter Jackson gets quite literally laughed out out of the room for trying to make a movie about a "magician" chasing after a "tacky" piece of jewelry.
