Amazon Video details its six new fall pilots

While still celebrating the Emmy wins for its original series Transparent, Amazon has just announced six new pilots for this fall that will hit the Prime Video streaming service. It's a smaller number of test episodes than in previous years for Amazon, but there is an impressive amount of talented veterans involved. The shows are mix of half-hour comedies and dramas, however Amazon will have to judge how they're received by viewers and critics before choosing which ones get an order for a full season.

First up is One Mississippi, described as a dark comedy based on the life of comedian Tig Notaro and her return to her childhood home after her mother's death. Notaro will be both producing and starring in the show, while Diablo Cody, writer of Juno, and Louis CK are executive producers.

Z is a biographical series about the life of jazz icon Zelda Fitzgerald, played by Christina Ricci. Highston follows a teenager and his imaginary celebrity friends, including Shaquille O'Neal and Flea, who actually guest star as themselves, and the push for him to get psychiatric help.

Shane Black, director of Iron Man 3, is behind Edge, an hour-long western drama taking place after the Civil War and telling the story of a Union officer turned vigilante cowboy. Patriot is a political thriller about an intelligence officer who must pretend to be a common employee at a piping company, with an appearance from Lost's Terry O'Quinn. Lastly is Good Girls Revolt, revealing the struggles of women looking for equality while working in a newsroom in 1969.

Amazon hasn't revealed an exact date when the pilots will be available for viewers to watch and submit feedback, but they are promised to debut before the end of the year.
