Amazon Studios has released six new, scripted pilots as part of its fall pilot season, the company said Thursday.

Among the new pilots available for Amazon subscribers to vote on for potential series include Z (pictured), a bio-series starring Christina Ricci (Monster) and based on the life of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, wife of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald; Highston, a comedy which follows a 19-year old with a wide circle of celebrity friends that only he can see and featuring NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal and Flea (The Big Lewbowski); and western-themed Edge, based on George Gilman’s best-selling book series of the same name starring Max Martini (Pacific Rim, Captain Phillips) and Ryan Kwanten (True Blood).

Also on the docket are Good Girls Revolt, which follows a group of female journalists facing sexual discrimination in the late 1960’s; One Mississippi, executive produced by Louis CK (Louie) follows a young woman dealing with the complex reentry into her childhood hometown of Bay Saint Lucille, Mississippi; and Patriot, a political thriller that follows the life of an intelligent officer tasked with preventing Iran from going nuclear.

Amazon’s fall pilot season also features several kids shows, including pre-school targeted shows If You Give A Mouse A Cookie and The Numberlys; animated series Danger & Eggs, Eddie of the Realms Eternal and Everstar; and tween targeted series Yoyotoki HappyEars!
