Amazon To Produce ‘Crowd-Sourced’ Comedy Series

Amazon Studios has announced plans to produce pilots for six original comedy series.

These pilots will be created by different Emmy-winning writers, Academy nominees, TV stars and some newcomers from the company’s open-door development process.

“Since launching our original series development effort, we have received more than 2,000 series ideas from creators around the world with all different backgrounds, and we are extremely excited to begin production on our very first set of pilots,” said Amazon Studios director, Roy Price.

Amazon Instant Video will be posting the six pilots for free and viewer response will help determine if the series will go into a full-season production.

Price added also added, “The six comedy pilots will begin production shortly, and once they are complete, we plan to post the pilots on Amazon Instant Video for feedback. We want Amazon customers to help us decide which original series we should produce.”

Will the next big comedy series come from Amazon?
