Amazon Studios' first pilot season of 2015 is now available on Amazon Instant Video in the US, UK and Germany.

Seven drama, comedy and docu-series pilots have premiered, including hour-long shows Cocked from Samuel Baum (Lie to Me) and Sam Shaw (Manhattan TV series), Mad Dogs from Cris Cole (The Bill) and Shawn Ryan (The Shield), Man in the High Castle from Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files), and Point of Honor from Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Randall Wallace (Braveheart).

In addition, pilots for two half-hour shows have debuted, including Down Dog from Robin Schiff (Are You There, Chelsea?) and Salem Rogers from Will Graham (Onion News Network) and newcomer Lindsey Stoddart, along with a documentary series, The New Yorker Presents.

Four animated kids' pilots (Buddy: Tech Detective, The Stinky & Dirty Show, Sara Solves It, Niko and the Sword of Light) join two live-action kids' pilots (Table 58 and Just Add Magic).

Customers are once again invited to watch and provide feedback on the shows they want to see turned into full series.

"We look forward to seeing our customers' response to the year's first pilot season," said Roy Price, vice president at Amazon Studios. "We're thrilled about these projects and the great talent and passion behind them."
