It’s had mixed results with original programming, but Amazon scored a huge hit with the award-winning comedy-drama Transparent, starring Jeffrey Tambor as a transgender woman.

From this Friday, three brand new comedy pilots featuring big names will be available to watch on the streaming service. As usual customers will be invited to review them and vote on which they would like to see as a full-blown original series – and, who knows, maybe the next Transparent?

Here’s a sneak preview of the three shows, which star, in no particular order, Kevin Bacon, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Britain’s own Peter Serafinowicz…

Jean-Claude Van Johnson
The ‘muscles from Brussels’ has already sent up his tough-guy image in ads for cars and beer, and Jean-Claude Van Damme is poking fun at himself again in this action-comedy pilot.

After a chance encounter with an old flame, the martial arts star comes out of retirement and assumes the alter-ego of Jean-Claude Van Johnson in order to carry out covert operations. Acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Black Hawk Down) and producer David W Zucker (The Man in the High Castle) are both on board.

I Love Dick
Adapted from the 1977 Chris Kraus novel of the same name – considered a ‘cult feminist classic’ – the Texas-set I Love Dick stars Kevin Bacon as a professor who turns a married couple’s relationship upside-down when both of them fall for him.

Transparent’s Kathryn Hahn and Dallas Buyers Club’s Griffin Dunne co-star as Chris and Sylvere, who relocate to the intellectual community of Marfa when Sylvere receives funding to finish a book about the Holocaust.

The Tick
Spoof superhero The Tick, created by cartoonist Ben Edlund in 1986, has already inspired one animated TV series and another live-action one, starring Patrick Warburton.

Now Shaun of the Dead’s Peter Serafinowicz (pictured) is donning the famous blue suit – complete with antennae – as the musclebound ‘big blue bug of justice’ with superhuman strength teams up with a mild-mannered accountant to take on a super-villain who was presumed dead.
