It’s pilot season at Amazon.com.
The streaming service, perhaps trying to get a leg up on competitor Netflix and Hulu, has added all 14 of its pilots, six of which are for kids.
Amazon has also posted a survey to gather feedback on its originals, to see which ones viewers would watch again, recommend them, and rating things like humor, writing and music while gathering demographic information.
Those pilots include:
“Alpha House,” written by Garry Trudeau (“Doonesbury”), featuring John Goodman (“Roseanne”), Clark Johnson (“The Wire”), Matt Malloy (“Six Feet Under”) and Mark Consuelos (“American Horror Story: Asylum”). It follows four senators living together in a Washington, D.C. rental house.
“Beta,” written by Evan Endicott and Josh Stoddard, starring Ed Begley Jr., Jon Daly, Joe Dinicol, Margo Harshman, Charlie Saxton and Karan Soni. It follows four friends attempting to cash in on a mobile social networking app.
“Browsers,” starring Bebe Neuwirth, is a musical comedy about four young people starting their first jobs at a news website.
“Dark Minions,” an animated workplace series about slackers on an intergalactic warship. “Supernatural” is another animated comedy about two divas who are humanity’s last line of defense against the supernatural.
“Onion News Empire,” a scripted comedy showing how ruthless journalists can be. Jeffrey Tambor (“Arrested Development”) and Chris Masterson (“Malcolm in the Middle”) star.
“Those Who Can’t” is a comedy about teachers possible more immature than their students.
“Zombieland” is based on the popular Columbia Pictures movie and is from the film’s creative team.
