Amazon Studios, the original film and series production arm of Amazon.com, announced that it plans to produce pilots for six original comedy series. The series come from a diverse set of writers including newcomers to Hollywood and industry veterans. This marks the studios' first pilot production since expanding into original programming development earlier this year.
Once the six pilots are completed, they will be posted on Amazon Instant Video for Amazon customers to watch for free. Viewer feedback will help determine which series Amazon Studios should produce.
Amazon Studios continues to invite series creators to upload their proposals for comedy and children's programming at http://studios.amazon.com/getting-started/series or submit them privately via Amazon Studios.
