Amazon commissions three new TV pilots
Building on a successful first round of comedy pilots last April, Amazon has given the green light for the production of three new half-hour pilots.
New pilots include Mozart in the Jungle written by Academy Award-nominee Roman Coppola, Jason Schwartzman and Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher), The Outlaws written by Jeremy Garelick and Jon Weinbach and Transparent written and directed by Emmy Award-nominee Jill Soloway.
Customers will be invited to watch, provide feedback and help determine which pilots should be produced as series to air exclusively on Amazon’s LOVEFILM in the UK and Prime Instant Video in the US in early 2014.
Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios, said: “We are thrilled to be working on these pilots with such talented creators with passionate visions for new shows. We are excited to hear what customers think of the shows.
