Amazon announces its fall 2017 pilot season and the marvelous mrs. Maisel will join prime video in November

Amazon is excited to share the news about the upcoming availability of its forthcoming fall pilot season on Amazon Prime Video on November 10. Prime Video members will also be able to enjoy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on November 29 and will continue to have access to several Thursday Night Football games during the remainder of October and throughout November. Members in more than 200 countries will soon have access to watch these on PrimeVideo.com.

Amazon’s Fall 2017 Half-Hour Pilot Season
On November 10, Amazon will debut three new half-hour pilots as part of its Pilot program. Amazon’s Pilot program has helped make some of the most critically-acclaimed and popular series to date.

Amazon’s upcoming half-hour pilots include:

  • The Climb: From creator and star Diarra Kilpatrick 
(American Koko, The Last O.G.) and The Mark Gordon Company comes a comedy about the new American Dream set against the backdrop of a rapidly changing Detroit. The Climb follows an office assistant who seeks an extraordinary life through internet fame, with her best friend always in tow. Chris Robinson (The New Edition StoryStar) directed the pilot and Christina Lee (Search PartyWet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp) served as showrunner on the pilot episode.
  • Love You More: Love You More stars New York City cabaret sensation Bridget Everett (Patti Cake$) as Karen Best, with Bobcat Goldthwait (God Bless America) directing and Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City, The Comeback, 2 Broke Girls) showrunning.  Karen Best is a big girl with a big personality and a big love of Chardonnay, which occasionally, causes her to make some big mistakes with men. But the biggest thing about Karen is her big heart, which she uses to excel at her job as a counselor at an independent living residence for young adults with Down syndrome. And sometimes, Karen’s need to stand up for all the little people in life manifests into a fantasy rock music number, where we discover she also has a big and beautiful voice. Love You More is from MPK Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and Amazon Studios.
  • Sea Oak: Sea Oak is a genre bending comedy from renowned author and creator George Saunders (Lincoln in the Bardo), starring Emmy-winner Glenn Close (Damages, The Wife), directed by Golden Globe-winner Hiro Murai (Atlanta) and executive produced by Jonathan Krauss through his Affiliated Pictures banner.  Murai will also serve as an executive producer as well as Evan Dunsky (Nurse Jackie).  Lael Smith and Keir McFarlane serve as co-executive producers.  Aunt Bernie, a working-class woman in a Rust Belt city (meek, unmarried, no kids) dies tragically in a home invasion. Compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead full of rage, determined to get the life she never had.  She proceeds to inflict a range of demands on what’s left of her nuclear family (a quasi-stripper nephew and two feckless nieces), who live in a low-end subsidized hellhole of a housing complex called Sea Oak.  Sea Oak is from Amazon Studios. 

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
On November 29The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will be available on Prime Video. The series, written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino (Gilmore Girls) and executive producer Daniel Palladino (Family Guy), stars Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a 1958 New York City woman who has everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent—one that changes her life forever. She charts a course that takes her from her comfortable life on Riverside Drive, through the basket houses and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she storms the world of stand-up comedy…a course that will ultimately lead her to a spot on Johnny Carson’s couch. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel also stars Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk) as Midge’s father Abe Weissman, Alex Borstein (Family Guy) as Susie Myerson, Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire) as Midge’s husband Joel Maisel and Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men) as Midge’s mother Rose Weissman.

Thursday Night Football
