New Amazon TV pilots are coming to Twitch
A family man turned superhero who sort of sucks at his job… A chaplain sent into space to help colonize a planet… Three men who leave San Francisco to grow marijuana in a shantytown…
What do these people have in common? Probably not much at all. But they are all starring in new Amazon Pilot TV shows that you can watch very soon, right here on /TwitchPresents.
As part of the (deep breath) Amazon Video Spring 2017 Pilot Season, we’re streaming the pilot episodes of sci-fi drama Oasis, dramedy The Legend of Master Legend, and comedy Budding Prospects. The shows will run in back-to-back 120-minute blocks over 24 hours starting April 5 at 1:00 PM PDT.
Here’s a peek at the good stuff:
Oasis: Based on the cult-hit novel The Book of Strange New Things, Oasis follows a chaplain (Richard Madden, The King in the North for you Game of Thrones fans) who’s sent into space to help establish a new colony on a distant planet. But space gonna space, and (trailer guy voice) he gets more than bargained for.
The Legend of Master Legend: A dark comedy about Frank Lafount, aka Master Legend. He’s a homemade superhero out to protect Las Vegas from evildoers. However, the most dangerous villains may be his own family members, who don’t see him as a real hero (which is profoundly sad, even for Las Vegas).
Budding Prospects: In 1983, three San Francisco city dudes move away from their comfy, counter-culture home to grow marijuana in a shantytown. Not only will they deal with rats and snakes (wait, is this an RPG tutorial?), they’ll also contend with law enforcement, dangerous locals, and the worst of all nemeses… UNFRIENDLY GROWING CONDITIONS. The title is also a weed pun, so it’s got that going for it.
Remember: /TwitchPresents, April 5, 1:00 PM PDT. Your response and feedback to these pilots will help determine the next Amazon Original Series. Come for the community bonding; stay for the inevitable puns and memes.
