Amazon Studios’ initial pilot season drew plenty of attention for its concept in letting viewers choose which new series went to production, exciting us all with the concept of a ‘Zombieland‘ continuation, thought the streaming service ultimately opted for the more demure ‘Alpha House‘ and ‘Betas.’ Round 2 has arrived, as Amazon made available 10 new pilots from the likes of ‘X-Files‘ creator Chris Carter’s ‘The After’ to Jason Schwartzman‘s ‘Mozart in the Jungle’!
Like last time, viewers have the option of watching all 10 new pilots on Amazon with the ability to rate them afterward. Among the selections are five original series ranging from drama to comedy, as well as five children’s programs. Below we’ve outlined what to expect from Amazon’s slate this time around.
On the drama side, there’s Titus Welliver’s detective series ‘Bosch,’ based on the literary character of the same name, followed by ‘The After,’ from writer-director Chris Carter about eight strangers thrown together by a mysterious catastrophe. Comedy selections bring us Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Alex Timbers’ ‘Mozart in the Jungle,’ starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Malcolm McDowell as rival conductors of the New York Symphony.
