Six new shows have been renewed by Amazon. The original programs that will continue in the upcoming season include Alpha House, The After, Mozart in the Jungle, Transparent, Bosch, and Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street.
Alpha House is the new comedy by Garry Trudeau. According to Entertainment Weekly, writer and producer Trudeau said, “Alpha House is a joy to work on and we’re thrilled that the show’s been renewed by Amazon. It’s fun to dance on the leading edge of streaming video, where audiences converge on server farms at all hours, besotted by John Goodman and free two-day shipping.”
Amazon took the unconventional approach of relying on customer reviews to determine which shows would continue. The innovative company is currently working on a free streaming media service that would give viewers options beyond Amazon’s Prime Instant Video subscription.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says that free streaming music videos will be the first free media offered via Amazon, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
