It’s Amazon Comedy Pilot time! “But wait,” you say. “Didn’t they just have a pilot season like, two months ago?” That’s the thing with Amazon Studios — no one really knows when things debut, so we just roll with it. And in this batch of series in particular, there are some very interesting projects on the line. Amazon does something no other studio does, by opening up its pilot season to the public (unless it’s Woody Allen, and then they just go straight to series). They produce, we vote, and they move forward with the most popular ones. In the past, that’s included breakout hits like Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, and The Man in the High Castle. But it’s also given us Hand of God, so, the process certainly isn’t perfect.
Below you’ll find a preview of the three half-hour comedies that will be available to view and vote on Friday, August 19th. And yes, if you pay for Prime Shipping, you have free access to all of Amazon’s original content, and a lot of other movies and TV shows. Use it!
