Amazon has launched its third pilot season by releasing two new drama pilots.
Hand of God follows Judge Harris, a hard-living law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side, who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart.
It stars Ron Perlman, Dana Delany, Garret Dillahunt, Andre Royo, Alona Tal, Julian Morris, Elizabeth McLaughlin, and Emayatzy Corinealdi.
Written by Ben Watkins, it is executive produced by Watkins, Marc Forster, Perlman, Brian Wilkins and Jeff King. Jillian Kugler is co-executive producer. Amazon Studios produces.
The second drama pilot, Hysteria, sees members of a girls’ competitive dance team stricken with a strange, psycho-physiological illness that manifests itself in violent fits and spasms and then begins spreading in the community through technology.
Set in Austin, Texas, the cast includes Mena Suvari, James McDaniel, Josh Stewart, Adan Canto, Laura San Giacomo, and TR Knight.
Writer Shaun Cassidy executive produces with Adam Schroeder, Sharon Hall, Andrew Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Bryan Zuriff, and Otto Bathurst. Amazon Studios produces with Universal Television and Alcon Television Group.
Subscribers to Amazon Prime Instant Video can watch the pilots and viewer feedback will help determine whether they receive full season orders.
