The New Yorker Presents: Watch the 30 Minute Pilot of the New Docu-Series from The New Yorker

Note: Any­one with an Ama­zon account (at least in the US) can watch this pilot in HD for free here.

This week, The New York­er offi­cial­ly cel­e­brates its 90th anniver­sary with an expand­ed edi­tion that revis­its its many accom­plish­ments since it first print­ed copies on Feb­ru­ary 21, 1925. Led by David Rem­nick, only the mag­a­zine’s fifth edi­tor, The New York­er has a rich past. But it has a future to con­sid­er too. Recent­ly, the mag­a­zine launched the pilot of The New York­er Presents — a “docu-series” that brings The New York­er aes­thet­ic to film. The 30-minute pilot (above, and also free on Ama­zon here) “fea­tures a doc from Oscar win­ner Jonathan Demme based on Rachel Aviv’s arti­cle ‘A Very Valu­able Rep­u­ta­tion,’ writer Ariel Levy inter­view­ing artist Mari­na Abramovic, a sketch from Simon Rich and Alan Cum­ming, poet­ry read by Andrew Garfield, and car­toons by Emi­ly Flake.”

If you like what you see, you’re in luck. The show, pro­duced by Ama­zon Stu­dios, has been green­lit for a full sea­son. Accord­ing to Real Screen, the new episodes will debut exclu­sive­ly on Ama­zon Prime’s video-on-demand ser­vice in the U.S., UK and Ger­many lat­er this year. When the episodes are out, we’ll let you know.
