Amazon revealed that it has six new TV projects in the pipeline. The streaming service will roll out pilots for the shows in the U.S., the U.K., Germany and Austria for the 2015 fall pilot season, Reuters reports.

As has been Amazon’s model, it will seek viewer feedback before deciding which projects will get full series orders.

One of the pilots is “Z,” which focuses on Zelda Fitzgerald and her relationship with “The Great Gatsby” author F. Scott Fitzgerald, her husband, Reuters notes.

Also on tap is “One Mississippi,” which the report describes as “a dark comedy about a woman coping with the loss of her mother.” The project has Louis CK on board as executive producer and “Juno” screenwriter Diablo Cody as co-writer.

“Other pilots include ‘Edge,’ a Western drama based on George G. Gilman’s book series; ‘Good Girls Revolt,’ political thriller ‘Patriot’ and the comedy ‘Highston,’ which has Sacha Baron Cohen as an executive producer,” Reuters reports.
