Amazon TV: Retail Giant Gets Into Original Programming With New Comedy And Kids' Shows On The Way

Amazon is looking to add some new shows to its streaming video library -- specifically, yours.

The online e-commerce giant with the burgeoning Instant Video site has announced a major initiative from its Amazon Studios wing: Starting now, Amazon is accepting ideas for TV shows from anybody who has a pilot script, an idea for five or six episodes, and an Internet connection. Amazon says that it will be selecting one idea per month to put into development. If it passes muster and Amazon decides to produce a full slate of shows, the creator will be given $55,000, up to five percent on sales of licensed merchandise, and "other royalties and bonuses," per a press release from Amazon.

Amazon is looking, specifically, for comedies and kids' shows; if you are submitting either, you need to have a completed pilot script in order to be considered.
