Amazon greenlights pilots for six children's shows

Amazon Studios has greenlit six new pilots for kids’ series, all of which will debut this summer on Amazon Instant Video. Amazon Prime members will be able to watch and give feedback on the shows, helping Amazon decide which ones will be turned into full series.

The six include four animated pilots (The Adventures of Knickerbocker Teetertop, Lost in Oz, Lily the Unicorn, and Bear in Underwear) and two live-action series (A History of Radness and The Kicks).

“These new pilots will bring sophisticated stories and unique points of view that we hope will resonate well with kids and families,” Tara Sorensen, Amazon Studios’ head of kids programming, said in a press release. “We’re very excited to be working with such passionate creative teams and look forward to sharing these projects with our customers later this year.”

The six pilots include:

  • The Adventures of Knickerbock Teetertop, an animated tale about a kid named Knickerbock Teetertop who wants to be an adventurer
  • Lost in Oz, an animated action-adventure comedy about a 12-year-old Dorothy Gale in Emerald City
  • Lily the Unicorn, an animated story produced by The Jim Henson Company that centers on a young girl with a creative imagination
  • Bear in Underwear, which follows Eddie Behr—a bear in, well, underwear who sets out to make discoveries in the Shady Glade Woods
  • A History of Radness, a live-action program written and executive produced by Hannah Montana’s Andrew Green, which covers aspiring musicians and original music
  • The Kicks, another live-actioner based on a book series by U.S. Women’s National Team soccer player Alex Morgan, which follows a young soccer star trying to help her new school team turn around a losing streak

The pilots will be available on Amazon Instant Video, as well as online at Amazon.com/AIV.
