Amazon Picks Up Four Pilots

Amazon posted ten pilots at the beginning of February: five kids shows, three comedies, and two dramas. Some of them were okay. Some of them were … less okay. And one was really good! Today, after a month of voting, four of the non-kiddie shows received pickups, according to Variety: Mozart in the Jungle, a comedy set within the party scene of classical music; Chris Carter's The After, a drama about a ragtag group facing down the apocalypse; Bosch, a cop drama starring Titus Welliver; and Transparent, a dark comedy about adult siblings. No word yet on which kids shows got picked up, but the important thing is that Transparent did.
