Amazon has ordered six pilots to series, including a drama from The X-Files creator Chris Carter, a half-hour comedy starring Malcolm McDowell and Bernadette Peters, and two children's programs. Additionally, Amazon has renewed Alpha House for a second season.
Amazon is poised to order four new series from the five original pilots the online company released last month, Variety reports.
Among the projects getting a green light are sci-fi series The After, written and directed by The X-Files creator Chris Carter, cop drama Bosch, dramedy Mozart in the Jungle and dark comedy Transparent. Like last year...
The X-Files creator Chris Carter has been laying low since the hit mythology series wrapped in 2002. But that's about to change: Carter is plotting a return to TV, starting with the Amazon pilot The After and another project in the works at AMC.
Amazon released a second set of original pilots Thursday, which viewers can watch for free through Amazon Prime Instant Video.
The new slate of programming includes five kids shows and five prime-time shows, including two hourlong dramas. Viewer feedback will determine which shows will be picked up for full seasons.
Titus Welliver and Sharon Lawrence
Amazon Studios has given a green light to two drama pilots, the company announced Thursday.
Bosch, based on the best-selling book series by Michael Connelly, tells the story of a relentless LAPD homicide detective (Titus Welliver) who pursues the killer of a 13-year-old boy. But Bosch is also standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected serial killer in cold blood.

Jamie Kennedy — of Ghost Whisperer and Scream fame — is paying a visit to TV Land's The Soul Man.
It's finale week on The CW's Oh Sit!, and what better way to go out than with a performance from the network's own star, The Vampire Diaries' Kat Graham?
In the video below, Graham sings her hit song "Heartkiller." Her performance is the culmination of the show's weekly guest artists, which have included Far East Movement, Neon Hitch and Orianthi, among others.
Did Oh Sit! hit the fans? Final ratings for the new CW competition series' Wednesday night premiere will be out later today, but the network already plans to air episode two of Oh Sit! tonight at 8/7c (leading into the series premiere of the new singing competition The Next). Oh Sit! — which was originally titled Extreme Musical Chairs, until The CW decided to have some fun with the title — centers on 12 contestants who go through a series of physically challenging obstacle courses to order to claim a chair (as a live band performs). The last player on a chair wins a cash prize. Jamie Kennedy hosts, along with Jessi Cruickshank, with Tanika Ray as the sidelines reporter. Executive producer Phil Gurin (The Singing Bee, Shark Tank) took time to fill out our TV Guide Magazine showrunner survey and explain why Oh Sit! happens.
If you thought you were competitive playing musical chairs as a kid, wait until you see the players on CW's upcoming series, Oh Sit.
"The key is butt-blocking," says one player. "I'm the 'sit,' so take a big whiff," says another (barely keeping a straight face.)
