Telemystery: Six More Amazon Original Pilots Receive Greenlight for Full Seasons, including Michael Connelly's Bosch

Telemystery: Prime Time Crime

Amazon confirmed in a press release today the news first reported a couple of weeks ago … that it has ordered six original series from pilots to full seasons.

"We had a tremendous response to Amazon Studios' latest pilots — in fact, double the number of customers watched these pilots compared to our first season and they posted thousands of heartfelt reviews with pleas for us to continue these shows," said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. "Now the fun really begins — Amazon will be working with some of the most talented casts and creators in the business to bring six new shows exclusively to tens of millions of Prime members worldwide. These series, along with our summer kids programming, will give customers a lot of viewing choices."

One of these new series is Bosch, based on a character created by crime novelist Michael Connelly. We watched the pilot and it is, in a word, excellent. Connelly and Eric Overmyer will co-write the series, which features Titus Welliver, Annie Wersching and Jamie Hector. Henrik Bastin and Fabrik Entertainment are producing.

"I'm excited beyond words," said Connelly. "This has been such a long time coming. But by waiting I think the right people and partnerships came together at the right time: Amazon and its creative team; ditto Fabrik Entertainment, Henrik Bastin, Eric Overmyer and of course, Titus Welliver [as Harry Bosch]. We're now off to make something really good."
