After Netflix scooped up a flurry of Emmy nominations for its original productions House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, it’s only natural that other instant channels are following suit. And, it looks like Amazon’s Prime Instant Video is officially in production mode with a trio of new projects — all with notable names behind them. Expect these new programs to make you howl with laughter, as each is falling under the comedy genre.

First up is Mozart in the Jungle, based on a memoir of the same name, that has none other than Roman Coppola behind the script, and beloved quirky heartthrob Jason Schwartzman cast in a starring role. Next up, just in time for Football season, The Outlaws revolves around an NFL team and is described as “edgy” by its creator Jeremy Garelick, who also wrote the screenplay for the Jennifer Aniston flick The Break-Up. Lastly, for those in favor of more cynical fare, there’s Transparent, which depicts the lives of a Los Angeles-based family with extreme boundary issues. And, here we thought our roomies could be dramatic!
All three half-hour pilots will be subject to viewer response when they debut in the UK in 2014; If fans give them a thumbs up, the series will go into full-season production. Let’s face it, we can all use a weekend devoted to binge-watching some fresh programs, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed they’ll all be coming to a television screen laptop near us, soon.
