The fate of Mark Consuelos’ political-themed comedy pilot lies in your hands…
Amazon Studios has unveiled its slate of 14 pilots, including the 41-year-old half-Mexican American actor’s Alpha House project.
The pilots have been made available for free viewing on Amazon Instant Video, LoveFilm UK and LoveFilm Germany. Viewers are invited to watch and review them on the site.
There will be “a lot of data points” in Amazon’s decision-making process as to which pilots will be picked up to series,” said Amazon Studios director Roy Price. Amazon will count how many people watched each pilot, how many watched each pilot from start to finish and how many shared it on social media. Additionally, the company will evaluate feedback from an online panel recruited on Amazon preview as well as traditional offline focus groups.
Here’s a look at the description for Amazon’s Consuelos-starrer, as well as Zombieland, starring Maiara Walsh.
Alpha House was written by Academy Award nominee and Pulitzer Prize-winner Garry Trudeau. It follows four senators, including Consuelos, who live together in a rented house in Washington D.C.
Based on the hit Columbia Pictures film of the same name, Zombieland finds four survivors outwitting zombies and searching for a place to call home. The pilot comes from the feature film’s original creative team, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The part of Tallahassee is played by Kirk Ward, Walsh as Wichita, Tyler Ross will play Columbus, and Izabela Vidovic has the role of Little Rock.
