Amazon is looking to produce six new
pilots for original comedies
, and it wants help from customers in deciding which ones to make into full series'.
Amazon Studios will make each of the six pilots and show them to customers for free. Customers then offer feedback to Amazon on which ones to produce.
“Since launching our original series development effort, we have received more than 2,000 series ideas from creators around the world with all different backgrounds, and we are extremely excited to begin production on our very first set of pilots,” said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. “The six comedy pilots will begin production shortly, and once they are complete, we plan to post the pilots on Amazon Instant Video for feedback. We want Amazon customers to help us decide which original series we should produce.”
The comedy pilots are as follows:
Alpha House, written by Garry Trudeau
Browsers, written by David Javerbaum
Dark Minions, written by Kevin Sussman and John Ross Bowie
The Onion Presents: The News, written by Will Graham and Dan Mirk
Supanatural, written by Lily Sparks, Price Peterson and Ryan Sandoval
Those Who Can't, written by Andrew Orvedahl, Adam Cayton-Holland and Benjamin Roy
Back in May 2012, Amazon Studios announced that it was
looking for writers, animators, producers, etc. to create original comedy and children's series ideas for
Amazon Instant Video
encouraged potential show creators to submit their material in the form of a five-page description
, and offered
either $10,000 45 days after submission or to have the creator add his/her project to the Amazon Studios website.

yes... let the public decide after watching one episode (pilot) if a plot should be expanded into a series... makes complete sense.
Oh wait, no it doesn't.
But hey... go for it Amazon, I'll take a look :)
