Everyone knows that success begets success in the world of television. If an idea works with audiences, then a network will invariably seek to capitalize and create more. This idea led to the existence of spinoffs, which -- from Frasier, to Better Call Saul -- have become some of the best sources for high quality television in recent years.

However, not every spinoff makes it to the small screen -- even if they deserve it. For every mediocre and unrealized idea about Gilmore Girls' Jess living the good life in California, there are a ton of great spinoffs that never make it through development. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of failed TV spinoffs that actually sound awesome. These potential series never materialized, but they were great ideas that had insane levels of potential. Now let's get started with one of the most bizarre (and intriguing) Seinfeld spinoffs that never actually saw the light of day...

Seinfeld - The Jackie Chiles Show

Can you believe this awesome character only appeared in six episodes of Seinfeld? Kosmo Kramer's favorite lawyer, Jackie Chiles, almost got a spinoff of his very own after the show about nothing came to an end in 1998. Although it never came to fruition, The Jackie Chiles Show would've followed the fast-talking Johnny Cochran parody as he went to work as the only black lawyer in an all white law firm following the events of the Seinfeld series finale. Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld were set to executive produce the series, with actor Phil Morris lined up to reprise his role as Jackie Chiles. However, the show only made it to the early stages of development before it was eventually dropped by NBC.
