Amazon’s ‘Pilot Season’ returns November 10th

by John_A

It’s that time of year again: Amazon is premiering its fall batch of series pilots on November 10th. And this season, the focus is definitely on the star power involved. The highlight is likely Sea Oak, the undead comedy starring Glenn Close — she plays an aunt who comes back as a zombie out of “sheer force of dissatisfaction” with the rest of her family. It touts author George Saunders as its creator and Atlanta’s Hiro Murai as director, so it could be in good hands.

Not that the other shows will be slouches. Love You More stars cabaret’s Bridget Everett (as a “big personality” with a “big heart”) and has legendary comedian Bobcat Goldthwait in the director’s chair. The Climb, meanwhile, has The Last OG’s Diarra Kilpatrick both creating and starring in a comedy about pursuing the American Dream in a “rapidly changing” Detroit with Star’s Chris Robinson as the director.

As you might expect, you’ll have to watch the pilots on Prime Video. There’s no mention of access on Twitch or other services. However, it’s telling that Amazon can name-drop major stars like Glenn Close during pilot seasons — it’s influential enough that it doesn’t always need to sign special deals to attract A-list talent.
