Amazon is entering its next pilot season at the end of this month, during which it will make five new shows available for streaming on Amazon Instant Video in both the U.S. and the U.K. Starting on August 28, viewers will be able to watch and rate any of the three new half-hour comedies and two hour-long dramas featured in this year’s lineup. In addition to announcing the official release date for these new shows, Amazon also provided a brief synopsis for each of the series, before they debut online.
The Cosmopolitans, one of the half-hour comedies soon to be available for streaming and reviewing, follows a group of young Americans living in contemporary Paris. Upon arriving in their new city, they must learn to adapt while also looking for love and friendship. Described as a romantic comedy for TV, the show was written, directed and produced by the Oscar nominated, Whit Stillman. The series stars a large cast, including Adam Brody, Chloë Sevigny, Carrie MacLemore, Dree Hemingway, Freddy Asblom, Jordan Rountree, and Adriano Giannini.
