Amazon continues to offer its pilots to viewers, to help the executives decide which ones to pick up. Customer feedback, the company says, plays a role in what actually goes to series.
The company has just announced that it will premiere three half-hour comedy pilots on Nov. 10. Here’s some information about them:
“Sea Oak” is from George Saunders, whose novel “Lincoln in the Bardo” recently won the Man Booker Prize. It’s based on his short story of the same title, which appeared in the collection “Pastoralia” in 2000. Glenn Close will star as a woman who dies in a home invasion but then comes back to life with a vengeance.
“Love You More” is from Michael Patrick King, the guy behind “Sex and the City” (Yay!), “The Comeback” (Yay!), and “2 Broke Girls” (Boo). Its stars Bridget Everett as a woman who makes big mistakes with men. She works at an independent living residence for young people with Down syndrome, and she sings in fantasy rock segments.
“The Climb” is from Diarra Kilpatrick, who also stars as an office assistant chasing the American Dream in Detroit.Matthew Gilbert can be reached at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @MatthewGilbert.
