Amazon Scares up 'Zombieland' for Pilot List

Viewer Feedback to Help Determine Which Pilots Become Series on Prime Instant Video 3/25/2013 1:28 PM Eastern

Amazon Studios, the original movie and series production arm of Amazon.com, has added cult favorite Zombieland to the pilot roster for its Prime Instant Video service.

Zombieland is the seventh comedy on Amazon's pilot lineup, which along with six children's pilots can be viewed for free on Amazon Instant Video and LoveFiLM UK. Subscribers can view the pilots and review them on the site, with customer feedback a key determinant for Amazon Studios' calls about which to turn into full-season orders.

Zombieland is a fan favorite and we can’t wait to see where this story line goes in a serialized format,” said Roy Price, director of Amazon Studios, in a statement. “We’ve been announcing a lot of exciting exclusive content for Prime Instant Video, like Downton Abbey, Under the Dome, and Justified, and we think adding original shows to that lineup is going to make Prime even more enticing for customers.”
