Subscribers to LOVEFiLM who want to have their own chance to help decide what shows are available on the streaming service will now have the opportunity. Amazon has announced that it will be offering 14 brand-new shows from Amazon Studios that will be available exclusively on LOVEFiLM for consideration. The idea is to get people to watch the shows and then vote on whether or not the pilots should be turned into a full series.

There will be eight comedy shows and six children shows for viewers to vote on. Several of the comedy pilots have big-name actors involved. The pilots include Alpha House, which stars John Goodman, and follows four US Senators living in a rented house in Washington DC.

Another of the comedy series is called Betas following friends working in Silicon Valley startups. Browsers is a musical comedy set in Manhattan following young people in their first jobs at a news website. Dark Minions is a cartoon about two slackers trying to living while working on an intergalactic worship.

Rounding out the remainder of the pilots include Onion News Empire, Supanatural (animated), and Those Who Can't. One of the most interesting comedy pilots is Zombieland, a series based on the film of the same name. The kid's series include Annebots, Creative Galaxy, Positively Ozitively, Teeny Tiny Dogs, and Tumbleaf. The pilots for all of these shows are available to watch and vote on now.
