Amazon adds a new batch of 13 TV show pilots

Amazon has once again produced and released a batch of 13 original TV show pilots on its Amazon Instant Video offering.

The online retail giant first began this initiative back in early 2013, when the likes of Alpha House and Betas got to make their pitch to the public.

As before, the pilots are free to watch once you’ve logged in with your Amazon account. You don’t even need an Amazon Prime account to access them.

The idea then is to complete a survey and essentially vote on which of the pilots gets picked up for a full series.

Among the 13, the stand-out shows appear to include The Man in the High Castle, which is based on  a Philip K. Dick story, stars the UK’s own Rufus Sewell, and is produced by Ridley Scott. It’s all about an alternate-history where the Nazis won World War 2 and occupied America.

There’s also the Jason Lee comedy drama Cocked, American Civil war drama Point of Honor, and a documentary series called The New Yorker Presents base don articles published in the famous magazine. Mad Dogs is a US remake of the UK black comedy thriller of the same name.
