Amazon's John Goodman-led original series, 'Alpha House,' garnered much acclaim during its first season run and even challenged Netflix's premiere model by initially releasing only the first three episodes before transitioning into a weekly release. So far, it's proved successful, and now Amazon has officially given the green light to 'Alpha House' season 2, in addition to series orders for six other programs.
The efficacy of Netflix's model of releasing entire original series at once has yet to be proven, but it seems Amazon has decided to split the difference when it comes to debuting its first original series 'Alpha House' and 'Betas' over the coming month. Amazon will release several episodes at once before shifting into a weekly format, but when can we see either star-studded effort?
Any additional hope of seeing Amazon pick up the 'Zombieland' TV series has now abated, as it seems the streaming service network has officially decided its pickups from among the 14 pilots released to the general public. Not only will the John Goodman-starring 'Alpha House' move forward, but Silicon Valley comedy 'Betas' and three children's series will as well. Let's take a look at Amazon's full pickup list!
Well, that's a striking title coincidence. Just yesterday we heard the news that Amazon's streaming service had officially passed on the 'Zombieland' TV series, as well as musical comedy 'Browsers,' but now the network has finally given its greenlights. John Goodman's political comedy 'Alpha House' will go to series, as well as Silicon Valley pilot 'Betas.' Find out the latest from Amazon inside!
With streaming services becoming all the more the rage, along with new havens for original programming, we'd been hearing that Amazon would soon take the leap into developing its own content. But why choose for themselves what to produce? The internet marketplace juggernaut has greenlit 6 original pilots from various producers, including Kristen Schaal ('Bob's Burgers,' '30 Rock'), Kevin Sussman and John Ross Bowie ('The Big Bang Theory'), and your choice will determine which gets produced!
