Amazon is continuing to beef up their Instant Video offerings with more original content in the form of six new kids pilots. If you’re unfamiliar with how Amazon pilots work, they’re made available for a short time to gauge the popularity of each new show. Viewers are encouraged to take a survey which helps Amazon determine which of the new pilots will receive a full season order.
Up for consideration this round are The Adventures of Knickerbock Teetertop, an animated show for preschool-aged children, and several shows for children ages 6 thru 11 including Lost in Oz, an animated action-adventure comedy, Lily the Unicorn, an animated show based on the hit children’s book An Awesome Book! and produced by the Jim Henson Company. Rounding off the animated shows is Bear in Underwear which is based on books written by Todd Goldman. Lastly are two live-action kids shows, A History of Radness, from the writers and producers of Hannah Montana, and The Kicks, which is based on a book series by US Olympic Gold Medalist and current US Women’s National Team soccer player Alex Morgan.
