Amazon is offering new comedy pilots to their lineup through their instant video service, and users can vote on which ones they want to see turned into a series.
Two new comedy pilots have been added to Amazon Instant Video for users to view, judge and give feedback. With the success of Transparent, which won two Golden Globes back in January, these shows could be the next breakout hits to give Amazon some relevance in the original programming world.
Here are the two comedy pilots available to view for free:
This comedy satirizes yoga culture in Los Angeles, focusing on a couple who own a yoga studio. The boyfriend in the relationship breaks up with the girlfriend, and he is forced to "face reality for the first time."
The 30-minute show stars Josh Casaubon (I Just Want My Pants Back), Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds), and Kris Kristofferson (Lone Star).
Salem Rogers: Model of the Year 1998
This comedy features Leslie Bibb (About a Boy) and Rachel Dratch (Saturday Night Live) as a former model and her "browbeaten former assistant," respectively. The series centers on this former model who gets out of rehab after a decade, only to discover that the world around her has changed and nobody really cares about her anymore.
Salem Rogers is also a 30-minute pilot, which is actually directed by Mark Waters, who directed Mean Girls.
Amazon users can watch both shows for free here and give feedback on which should be kept on and made into a series.
