Amazon Debuts 13 New TV Show Pilots

Speaking of Amazon Instant Video, Jacob Kastrenakes reports for The Verge:

Riding off of some huge news — its first Golden Globes win and a major commitment from Woody Allen — Amazon is debuting its next set of TV pilots for viewers to watch and vote on. As usual, there are a lot of options here and a lot of big names. The favorite so far appears to be an adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s alternate-history Nazi novel The Man in the High Castle, which has Ridley Scott producing. The Civil War drama Point of Honor is another interesting pilot, with Lost showrunner Carlton Cuse behind its script. The other immediate standout is The New Yorker Presents, which is a mixture of fiction, documentary, and poetry all mashed up that tries to replicate the experience of reading the magazine.
