Amazon Picks Up Four New Shows

Amazon Picks Up Four Of Its Pilots To Series, Including Chris Carter's 'The After'

Variety is reporting that it's been a very good "Pilot Season" indeed for Amazon Studios. The company streamed ten pilots for viewers to vote on, including five for adult viewers and five for children. In a surprising move, four of the five adult pilots got picked up. Last year, only two adult pilots -- "Alpha House" and "Betas" -- made it to full series.

Making the cut were two dramas, Chris Carter's "The After." Based on the pilot, "The X-Files" creator is definitely sticking with the weird. It's a post-apocalyptic reality ... sort of. "Bosch" is the other drama, and it's far more traditional. Titus Welliver stars as the titular Bosch, a self-destructive but brilliant detective who attempts to solve one case while standing trial for murder in relation to another case.

The comedy pick-ups include "Mozart in the Jungle," a peek behind the curtains of a major symphony, and "Transparent." The latter stars Jeffrey Tambor as the patriarch of a dysfunctional family with serious boundary issues ... and surprising secrets. And it probably means that the fifth series, football comedy "The Rebels," isn't moving forward at all.

UPDATE: March 31 -- Amazon officially confirmed picking up its four original pilots "Transparent," "Mozart in the Jungle," "The After," and "Bosch" on Monday, March 31. Additonally, the company greenlit two of its children's pilots, ”Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street" and “Wishenpoof!” Amazon also renewed their original series "Alpha House" for a second season.
