Over the last few months, Netflix has revealed plans to produce and distribute original films, like new projects from Adam Sandler, a ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ sequel, and the new ‘Pee-wee’ movie from Paul Reubens and producer Judd Apatow. It seemed fairly predictable that Amazon would also get into the movie game pretty soon, following their slate of original streaming series, like the critically-acclaimed ‘Transparent.’

HBO has long been a thorn in the side of streaming media enthusiasts, only licensing its content to be accessed through HBO GO, unlike the Netflix and Amazon Prime models that have become so commonplace in recent years. Now, the pay-cable network struck a surprising Amazon Prime deal to deliver streams of a variety of shows past and present, but don't expect to start that 'Game of Thrones' marathon just yet.

Amazon Studios' initial pilot season drew plenty of attention for its concept in letting viewers choose which new series went to production, exciting us all with the concept of a 'Zombieland' continuation, thought the streaming service ultimately opted for the more demure 'Alpha House' and 'Betas.' Round 2 has arrived, as Amazon made available 10 new pilots from the likes of 'X-Files' creator Chris Carter's 'The After' to Jason Schwartzman's 'Mozart in the Jungle'!
