Amazon Instant Video back for more

Amazon Instant Video is ready to offer the world a second helping, with Amazon announcing three new half-hour pilots. As is typical of Amazon, and as they did for their first batch of comedy pilots last April, they are placing massive emphasis on viewer response with these new pilots, inviting customers to watch and help decide which they want to see go forward into a full series production for both Amazon’s LOVEFiLM and on Prime Instant Video early next year.

Here are the titles themselves: Mozart in the Jungle, written by Academy Award nominee Roman Coppola (The Darjeeling Limited), Jason Schwartzman (Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore) and Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher); The Outlaws, written by Jeremy Garelick (The Break-Up) and Jon Weinbach; and Transparent, written and directed by Emmy Award nominee Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under).

“We are thrilled to be working on these pilots with such talented creators with passionate visions for new shows,” says Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. “We are excited to hear what customers think of the shows.”
