While he's never really been part of the studio system to begin with, it's meaningful that even Whit Stillman is headed to TV with his next project. Later this month, his pilot for "The Cosmopolitans" will be available courtesy of Amazon Studios via Amazon.com's Buy Everything Here service, along with a handful of other new shows where fans will upvote which ones will be expanded into full series. Does this one have what it takes?

The Cosmopolitans

While he's never really been part of the studio system to begin with, it's meaningful that even Whit Stillman is headed to TV with his next project. Later this month, his pilot for "The Cosmopolitanswill be available courtesy of Amazon Studios via Amazon.com's Buy Everything Here service, along with a handful of other new shows where fans will upvote which ones will be expanded into full series. Does this one have what it takes?

Vanity Fair has a first look with a behind-the-scenes preview, so you can see for yourself. This show looks promising, with a nice ensemble lined up  —including Adam Brody, Chloe Sevigny, Dree Hemingway and more— about a group of young Americans living in Paris, figuring out love, life and friendship.

Should he get the thumbs up, Stillman will put together a six episode season. And if not? “I’m very happy to have it as a pilot. I really feel that my IMDB page will look a little less pathetic,” he tells the magazine. Watch below. "The Cosmopolitans" debuts on Amazon on August 28th.
