Next Round Of Amazon Original Programming
Amazon Studios has asked us, the viewers, to review a set of TV show pilots on Amazon Instant Video, like it did one year ago.
Last year most notably Alpha House, a political comedy, written by Gary Trudeau, and Betas, a Silicon Valley comedy, went into production, along with some children’s shows. Last year, many critics were disappointed, because a TV version of zombie comedy Zombieland didn’t make the cut.
This year, at least the people at Wired.com seem content by the six shows that will go into production. First off, Alpha House will get a second season. Good news for fans of John Goodman! Who else made the cut?
The After a supernatural apocalyptic thrill show by X Files creator Chris Carter.
Transparent, a dramedy centered around a L.A. family with issues no longer kept secret.
Bosch, a crime show about a L.A. homicide detective, based on Michael Connelly’s best-selling book series.
Mozart In The Jungle, a dark comedy which can best be described as “Sex & Drugs & Classical Music”, starring Gael Garcia Bernal.
2 more shows are aimed at a kids audience: Gortimer Gibbons’ Life On Normal Street and Wishenpoof!
Head over to Deadline for more on the shows and the talent involved.
