Amazon's second round of original pilots seems to have gone well -- Variety is reporting that four of the five non-kids show pilots the company unveiled last month for feedback from the public have been ordered to series. This includes "Transparent," the half-hour family comedic drama from "Afternoon Delight" director Jill Soloway that quickly became a huge critical favorite. Variety reports that Chris Carter's apocalypse saga "The After," Michael Connelly detective story "Bosch" and Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman's comedy "Mozart in the Jungle" have also gotten series orders (no word on the children's pilots yet). Sports comedy "The Rebels," which we'd pegged as the worst of the bunch, is apparently going to be left hanging. Amazon has yet to confirm this news, so we'll be updating this article soon as there's official word from the company.
