Amazon Greenlights Four Pilots from New Batch, Including Chris Carter's "The After"

Chris Carter's "The After" Amazon Studios has settled on four series orders among the 10 pilots the company announced last month were under consideration, according to sources close to the deals. A rep for Amazon Studios declined comment. Getting the greenlight will be “Bosch,”  a cop drama based on Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch series, written by Eric Overmyer and Connelly. Pilot follows title character, played by Titus Welliver (“Argo,” “The Good Wife”) as he pursues the killer of a 13-year-old boy while standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected serial killer in cold blood. Cast includes: Annie Wersching, Amy Price-Francis and Jamie Hector. Henrik Bastin of Fabrik Entertainment (“The Killing”) produced and Jim McKay directed the pilot. Written and directed by Chris Carter (“The X-Files”), “The After” is a drama that follows eight strangers thrown together by mysterious forces and who must help each other survive in a violent world that defies explanation.
