Amazon is continuing to make strides in their original comedy series offerings.

These just aren’t fan favorites, but have been lauded by critics and their peers as well with Golden Globe and Emmy awards. For the new comedy, there were two names that propelled Amazon into action: Danny DeVito and Jeff Goldblum.

Amazon is in the CIA business, well the business of running a TV series based on a CIA hero – Jack Ryan. The streamer ordered 10 episodes  straight-to-series for the drama that will star John Krasinski as Ryan. The project comes from Carlton Cuse, writer Graham Roland, Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, Skydance Media and Paramount TV. Three scripts have been submitted by Cuse and Roland which likely helped with the straight-to-series order, not as much as snagging Krasinski for the lead though.

Never thought I’d ever see these words, but here goes: Jean-Claude Van Damme is attached to a comedy pilot on order from Amazon. Shocked? I’m still a little unsure and I’m writing this! We know he’s going to star as it’s titled ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson‘. His counterpart in this series is Kat Foster.

Woody Allen Casts Leads for Amazon Original Series!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 26th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

Woody Allen is an artist that garners reactions on both ends of the spectrum when it comes to enjoyment of his projects, you either love him or hate him. It seems, he’s not always happy with his decisions, either, at the last Cannes, he said the deal he made to create a TV series for Amazon was a catastrophic mistake and he regretted signing on to make an original series. His plan was to create a movie, but in six parts, that didn’t quite work out as planned. He struggled through the process and will write, direct and star in the finished product along with two unlikely co-stars.

Amazon Studios has taken a film with an established fan base and is developing a series based on the ‘Star-Trek‘ish ‘Galaxy Quest‘. Like Trek, ‘Galaxy Quest‘ had some incredibly memorable characters that have lived on since 1999 when Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman made hit the big screen.

If David E. Kelley (‘Ally McBeal‘, ‘LA Law‘, ‘The Practice‘) is bringing a series about it’s a pretty much guarantee that it’s going to be a high-powered, legal drama and in this case, you’d be right. Amazon has picked up the series ‘Trial‘ from the writer and has cast some pretty big super-stars to anchor the drama, Billy Bob Thornton and William Hurt.

Amazon Announces 4 Pilots Green-lit for Series!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 13th, 2014

Hello Jana here,

 dt.common.streams.StreamServer

Amazon jumped head-first into original programming with 5 pilots that were uploaded to their site where they encouraged viewers to watch and comment their opinions. I’m guessing they got the reaction they wanted as they have now picked four of the titles to give a series order. This includes the first dramas for their fledgling, innovative line-up with ‘The After‘ and ‘Bosch‘. Their new comedy series are ‘Mozart In The Jungle‘ and ‘Transparent‘. The fifth pilot that was not picked up, ‘The Rebels‘ comes from Ice Cube and Michael Strahan. From Amazon’s first pilot season saw eight comedies going to pilot while only two were picked up for series, ‘Alpha House‘ and ‘Betas‘. Of those two, ‘Alpha House‘ has been renewed for a second season and ‘Betas‘ has been discontinued.

Amazon’s New Comedy Series Are Debuting This Month!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

 alpha-house-amazon

When I read the premise for Alpha House, an original series from Amazon for release strictly on Amazon, I felt like I was kind of familiar with the idea. Four buddies that, due to skyrocketing rental prices, decide to share a house. This sounds like a frat party waiting to happen. With a name like Alpha House, you’d guess to be right on the money, right? WRONG! This is a story about four senators faced with crazy rent prices in Washington D.C., and decide to split the cost. Which, incidentally, is something that actually happens.

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 4th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

original

‘We’ve written about the possibility of a ‘Zombieland‘ sequel before, and even it becoming a tv series, which was the original intention of the original before it became a feature film. Well now, Amazon is looking to develop the new series based on the hit movie. They are in talks right now with Sony for the rights to the project. The project is expected to be a 30 minute comedy horror series with either a pilot episode first or a full on series.  Either way, I’m happy about this.
