Amazon announces new crop of fall pilots

Amazon announces new crop of fall pilots

 In the wake of its five Emmy wins on Sunday, including lead actor and directing in a comedy for “Transparent,” Amazon has announced its fall pilot season -- set to debut in the months to come -- exclusively on Amazon Video, where viewers can watch the new pilots and give feedback that Amazon purportedly uses in deciding which of the shows to move forward with.

As for a creative strategy, it appears that Amazon is going all-in on adaptations and talent. Though that’s not a terrible way to go about television programming, it does occasionally leave your lineups looking a bit like a game of TV Mad Libs.
