Amazon Orders ‘Alpha House’ and ‘Betas’ to Series, Passes on ‘Browsers’

By

Amazon debuted eight original comedy pilots on the online retailer’s streaming service last month, and they’re currently in the process of deciding which ones go to series. Deadline reports that Amazon has picked up the John Goodman senator comedy Alpha House and the Silicon Valley tech sitcom Betas, featuring Jon Daly, while passing on musical HuffPo intern series Browsers. Amazon passed on Zombieland last week. The online retailer has yet to make a decision on its four remaining comedy pilots – Onion News Empire, Those Who Can’t, Supanatural, and Dark Minions. Those Who Can’t and Onion News Empire our favorites, topped our list ranking all the potential shows, so hopefully Amazon does the right thing and orders at least those two to series.
