NEW YORK (AP) -- Author Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch book series may be finding its way onto television screens soon.

Amazon Studios said Thursday that a series based on Connelly's books is one of two drama pilots it is making. The streaming service will work much like Netflix in making original content available to subscribers. The Bosch series follows a Los Angeles homicide detective who is pursuing the killer of a 13-year-old boy while on trial for murdering a serial killer.

Amazon also says it is making a futuristic pilot called "The After," written by Chris Carter of "The X-Files."

Unlike network television pilots, the public will be given a chance to see these projects and register an opinion about whether they should be made into series.
