Follow this link to watch the pilot episode of Alpha House for free.

Customers watched and voted on a series of Amazon-produced pilots, ultimately choosing Trudeau’s Alpha House and the Betas adult comedy. Three kids shows also passed the test: AnnebotsCreative Galaxy and Tumbleaf. 

Trudeau had this comment in the release:

We’re thrilled to have emerged safely from this harrowing exercise in online democracy … All of us at Alpha House thank both Amazon and its wise and wonderful customer base for such a happy outcome. As the future of episodic TV packs up and moves to Seattle, we hope the audience will continue to have as much fun watching the show as we have making it.

All theses shows will release “a full series of episodes that will air exclusively on Prime Instant Video later this year and in early 2014.”
