Beginning on August 28 Amazon Prime users will be able to watch The Cosmopolitans pilot and vote on whether it will be picked up for a full series. Should it be voted in, Stillman plans a short six-episode season for The Cosmopolitans, which he wrote “like putting two film scripts together.” And even if it doesn’t get picked up? “I’m very happy to have it as a pilot. I really feel that my IMDB page will look a little less pathetic.”
And that’s why “Barcelona” is a comedy, and why the romance that drives it is so subtle and so complex. Stillman’s current project is a pilot for a Web series set, once more, among American expatriates, this time in Paris; it’s called “The Cosmopolitans,” and I’m jumping out of my skin with impatience to see it.
