Amazon would like one order of all of the shows, please. Deadline reports that the site has picked up seasons for five of its six fall pilots, among them, Tig Notaro’s One Mississippi, which was Margaret Lyons’s pick from the pack. Written and executive-produced by Notaro and Diablo Cody and executive-produced by Louis CK, One Mississippi is a semi-autobiographical account of Notaro’s return home after her mother died and she was diagnosed with cancer. It also stars Casey Wilson, Noah Harpster, John Rothman, and Beth Burvant.
Amazon’s other selections are Good Girls Revolt, a 1969-set drama about feminism starring Anna Camp; Patriot, a political thriller with Terry O’Quinn; Highston, a comedy starring Lewis Pullman and his group of imaginary celebrity friends; and Z, a TV biography series with Christina Ricci as Zelda Fitzgerald. Amazon extended the option for its sixth pilot, Edge, a Western from Shane Black and Fred Dekker, which is the equivalent of that guy texting you, “Had fun! Let’s hang out soon!”
The site also announced second seasons of Red Oaks, its ‘80s comedy, and Hand of God, a crime thriller with Ron Perlman. Earlier today, Amazon also announced that it would renew The Man in the High Castle for a second season.
