From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaAmazon Studios is Amazon.com's division that develops comics, movies and television shows from online submissions and crowd-sourced feedback. It was started in late 2010. Content would be distributed through Amazon Instant Video, Amazon’s digital video streaming service, and a competitor to services like Netflix and Hulu. For film, Warner Bros. is a partner.
Film and televisionScripts for television and film are submitted through the web. They are reviewed and rated by other readers in a crowd-source fashion, and/or by Amazon staff. Scripts may be submitted with the option to allow other people to modify them. In addition there is a separate submission method for professional writers (Writers Guild of America members) with separate rules.
Amazon has 45 days to choose a submitted script. If a project is chosen for development the writer receives $10,000. If a developed script is selected for distribution as a full-budget series, the creator gets $55,000 as well as "up to 5 percent of Amazon’s net receipts from toy and t-shirt licensing, and other royalties and bonuses." 
Amazon Studios had received more than 10,000 feature screenplay submissions as of September 2012, and 2,700 television pilots as of March 2013. 23 films and 26 television series were in active development but none had reached the production stage (1 March 2013).
"Mozart in the Jungle," oboist Blair Tindall's tell-all memoir of life as a freelance musician in New York City, will be made into a 10-episode series for Amazon Studios, reports Variety.
