With Amazon Studios still releasing shows from its second cycle of pilots, it’s already moving ahead with its third pilot season, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.

Amazon will ask viewers to watch and rate the fresh crop of pilots starting Aug. 28, with people in the U.S. and the U.K. invited to participate. The new group of projects is split between comedy and drama, after the second season leaned more toward drama.

One of the comedy projects is “The Cosmopolitans,” which is written, directed and produced by Whit Stillman, the creator of films such as “Barcelona.” It stars Adam Brody and Chloe Sevigny as expats living in Paris.

Another project is “Red Oaks,” produced by Steven Soderbergh and directed by David Gordon Green. It tracks a man who works at an elite New Jersey country club in the 1980s.

Sarah Chalke stars in “Really,” playing the wife of a man portrayed by Jay Chandrasekhar, who gets in trouble when he tries to cover up a friend’s secret.

On the drama side, Amazon has “Hand of God,” which stars Ron Perlman as a judge who turns into a vigilante, led by his visions. Mena Suvari, meanwhile, stars in “Hysteria,” about a neurologist who looks into an illness that’s apparently spread by social media.
