Amazon Studios has made up its mind on four new series out of the 10 pilots the company showcased last month, which will go on to become full shows for the Amazon Prime streaming video service.
The first of these four is Bosch, a series based on the Harry Bosch series. The show follows the title character, played by Titus Welliver, as he chases after a killer of a young body while attending court proceedings over accusations of the murder of a suspected serial killer.
The second is The After, the latest from The X-Files creator Chris Carter. It follows eight strangers who must work with each other to survive violent odds in an ever-changing world.
Those seeking lighter fare will be interested in the two comedy shows ordered: Mozart In the Jungle, which is based on the memoirs of Blair Tindall and follows the goings-on in a symphony; and Transparent, a dark comedy about an L.A. family that’s a bit too nosy for its own good.
There’s no word yet on the remaining pilots, as Amazon hasn’t given indication as to when the others will launch. A “sizzle reel” featuring most of these pilots is included below.
