Amazon has released three new pilot comedies that Prime members can now watch, review, and vote for their favorite, which potentially could lead to a full season pick-up. Check out a newly-released sizzle reel for the action-comedy "Jean-Claude Van Johnson," the feminist dramedy "I Love Dick" and the superhero send-up "The Tick."

Each pilot runs for 30 minutes. And each features some top-notch stars that include Jean-Claude Van Damme, Kevin Bacon, and English comedian Peter Serafinowicz.

All three pilots are currently available for streaming on Amazon Video. For more information, head on over to www.amazon.com/PilotSeason.

synopsis:
"The TICK," starring Peter Serafinowicz, Griffin Newman, Valorie Curry, Brendan Hines, with Jackie Earle Haley
A superhero spoof that's based on cartoonist Ben Edlund's comic book about a well-intentioned but inept blue-suited crusader who just might be a figment of someone's imagination. The character was made into an animated series in the '90s and also a short-lived sitcom with Patrick Warburton in 2001. This is the second live-action incarnation, in which Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight) directed the pilot.

"JEAN-CLAUDE VAN JOHNSON," starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Kat Foster, Phylicia Rashad, and Moises Arias
From the director of "Keanu," Peter Atencio, and the writer of "The Expendables," Dave Callaham, comes a new action comedy about an aging action star (JCVD, playing a heightened version of himself) who has decided to come out of retirement -- as the world's greatest undercover assassin, codename: Johnson!

"I LOVE DICK," starring Kevin Bacon, Kathryn Hahn, Griffin Dunne
Directed by "Transparent" creator Jill Soloway and based on the book by Chris Kraus, this deadpan comedy follows a frustrated New York filmmaker (Hahn) and her writer husband (Dunne) as they travel to Marfa, Texas to attend a motivational seminar hosted by a pseudo-intellectual cowboy (Bacon) whose self-help theories inspire the couple to confront their sexless marriage.
