Amazon's New Batch of Pilots Arrive on 10th November

By Tom Pritchard on at

Different streaming services do things differently, like how Netflix releases all of its original original shows in one go. Amazon has its own thing, in that it lets the viewers decide which pilots get ordered to series. Well sort of. It uses viewer feedback to help it make its decisions, rather than simply trying to predict what people want - which is how most TV studios do it.

To do that Amazon has something called a 'pilot season', where all the pilots are released to the public. The next one is arriving quite soon too, launching on 10th November.

There are only three pilots this time around, with Sea Oak about a deceased aunt (Glenn Close) that returns as a zombie "compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction" to get the life she never had. There's also Love You More about a big-hearted counsellor working with young adults with down syndrome, and while standing up for them discovers she has a voice as big and beautiful as that heart. Finally is The Climb which focuses on an office worker who seeks fame and fortune as an internet star, and drags her best friend along for the ride.

I don't know about you, but I am intrigued by Sea Oak, after Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet it shows that zombies aren't as tired and worn out a genre as people might think.

All three pilots are half an hour long, and will be available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
