Amazon TV Pilots Lead to 5 Commissions

The result of Amazon’s ground breaking TV pilot trial has led to 5 new TV commissions from the online shopping and media giant.

Amazon put 14 TV pilots online and commissioned the successful series based on audience feedback. This is a great example of how powerful the audience is today and how this power can be harnessed for the good of viewers AND commissioners. I wonder if Netflix will follow their lead?

The commissioned shows are “Alpha House”, a political comedy starring John Goodman; “Betas”, a comedy about start-up culture in Silicon Valley; “Annebots”, a kids’ show about robots; “Creative Galaxy”, an animated art adventure series; and “Tumbleaf”, another kids’ show about a small blue fox named Fig.
