Amazon has just put up two new pilot episodes that you can watch for free. When you’re done, like with all of their pilots, they ask that you let them know what you thought of the shows, to help them determine if the pilot will become a full series.
Results for the the previous round of pilots consisting of 6 new kids shows is still undetermined, but 5 new series have been approved from the batch that became available in January. The 5 shows that will get a full season run are: The Man in the High Castle, Mad Dogs, and The New Yorker Presents, as well as two kids shows The Stinky & Dirty Show and Just Add Magic.
The first of the two new pilots is Sneaky Pete, staring Giovanni Ribisi as an ex-con who takes on the identity of his cellmate after leaving prison. Second is Casanova, starring Diego Luna as Giacomo Casanova who flees to Paris in hopes of putting his reputation as a playboy behind him. Continue on for the trailers and synopsis of these two new pilots.
After leaving prison, Marius takes cover from his past by assuming the identity of his cellmate, Pete. He moves in with Pete’s long-estranged, unsuspecting family and is roped into the family’s bail bond business. He’s a criminal taking down other criminals and, in the process, he’ll discover the family life he’s never had. Executive produced by David Shore, Bryan Cranston, and Seth Gordon.
Exiled from his beloved Venice, Giacomo Casanova flees to Paris at the dawn of the Enlightenment in hopes of putting his reputation as a playboy behind him. But old habits die hard, and temptation is everywhere as Casanova finds a wealth of new opportunity… and trouble. From Stu Zicherman (The Americans) and Ben Silverman (Jane the Virgin).
Casanova is directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet who also directed great movies like Amelie and City of Lost Children.
It’s 8/19/2015 at 11:11pm PST and this article is the first thing that pops on on the http://www.aftvnews.com home page. I clicked around and did notice you had updates to the apps and other pages but they aren’t coming up like normal on the homepage which usually aggregates changes. It looks like the homepage is stuck on the two new pilots released by amazon – which I watched because you posted it here :-)
You said to post a reply on the affected page if there is a problem rather than email so that is what I am doing.
Looks like you fixed it! Thank you. All recent updates show up on the homepage again.
