Amazon's Fall 2015 "Pilot Season" is underway in the US, UK, and Germany. The way it works is that those with Prime memberships can stream a handful of new pilots for free, and the ones that wind up getting the best audience feedback have a chance of getting a first season pick up. Past pilots that have been picked up for series include Transparent, Bosch, The Man in the High Castle, Red Oaks, Sneaky Pete, and Mad Dogs. You can check out the current Pilot Season episodes here.
As sort of a spiritual successor to Mad Men, Amazon Studios' Good Girls Revolt looks at the gender imbalance in news culture in the '60s and '70s, and follows a group of female researchers working at "News of the Week" magazine. While the characters and publication are fictitious, the series is loosely based on Lynn Povich's book of the same name, about how the women of Newsweek sued their bosses for gender discrimination in the first lawsuit of its kind.
