Amazon’s experiment to put their TV pilots online for viewer feedback is officially done.
Amazon has been relatively unique among streaming giants in not only requesting pilots but putting them up for a vote by the viewers. But the democratic process is done- Amazon Studios executives told reporters at press tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday that Prime Video pilot voting has been “set aside for now.”
Amazon will still use both its own internal testing and “some user data” to make the call on whether a show goes forward. It’s not that Amazon doesn’t trust viewer feedback, Amazon just not convinced the pilots themselves are necessary.
