Amazon remains gung-ho on the original content business. Amazon Studios is developing its first drama series, "Bosch," a police procedural based on Michael Connelly's Detective Harry Bosch novels. Per Deadline, the pilot is written by Connelly and "Treme" co-creator Eric Overmeyer.

The character Bosch is a veteran homicide detective in the LAPD, and has been the centerpiece of 20 Connelly novels over 20 years, beginning in 1992 with "The Black Echo" and most recently in fall 2012 with "The Black Box."

Amazon Studios, which recently launched a digital storyboard tool for screenwriters, focused on comedies and kids programming in its first batch of 14 pilots, which in a unique move were unveiled to the public for free on Amazon Instant Video on April 19. Five of these, including "Alpha House" starring John Goodman and "Betas," were picked up and will premiere as full series on Prime Instant Video later this year.
