Amazon Lets You Pick Next Big Show

With Netflix and Hulu continuing to create original content, Amazon Instant Video wants to get into the game. Their approach is a little different than the competitors, however. Amazon has pitched their pilots to YOU instead of the executives in the hopes of finding shows that people want to watch.

There are currently 14 pilots for you to take a look at; 6 for kids and 8 standard comedies. There is definitely something for everyone:

  • Zombieland: Four survivors are killin' zombies and searching for a home.
  • Those Who Can't: The most immature guys at this high school are teachers.
  • Alpha House: They work in the Senate. They live in the house-Alpha House.

If those 3 don't show the variety available in these pilots, I don't know what will. I am most excited about Zombieland and Betas, a show about 4 friends who create a Silicon Valley startup. There's also a music-based show, a space series, a cartoon and even a series from The Onion. How can this possibly go wrong?

Everyone, Amazon Prime customer or not, should check out these shows and vote for the ones you want to see made into a full-fledged series. Only with enough votes will any of these series be picked up for a full season, and from the looks of it, several of them deserve it. Check them out and let us know which are your favorites in the comments.
