Amazon Bows First Original Series15 Nov, 2013 By: Erik Gruenwedel
First three episodes of 'Alpha House' available for free on connected devices
Amazon Prime Instant Video Nov. 15 began streaming the first three episodes of its first original series, “Alpha House,” to Prime members and connected viewers.
The 11-episode comedy follows the follies of Washington, D.C., politics via the antics of four senators and staff. The senators (John Goodman, Mark Consuelos, Clark Johnson, and Matt Malloy) rent a house together in Washington. The roomies are joined by Cynthia Nixon (“Sex and the City”), Amy Sedaris (“Strangers with Candy”), Wanda Sykes (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Julie White (“Go On”).
Remaining episodes will become available weekly, every Friday, exclusively on Prime Instant Video.
“Our goal has always been to create shows that customers will love and we can’t wait to see ‘Alpha House’ come to life,” said Roy Price, director of Amazon Studios. “Creator Garry Trudeau (Pulitzer-winning “Doonebury” comic) and the amazing cast of ‘Alpha House’ have delivered a humor-packed first season that doesn’t skip a beat.”
The first three episodes of “Alpha House” are available to all Amazon customers for free via Amazon Instant Video on Kindle Fire, iPad, iPhone, Roku, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, Wii U, hundreds of other connected devices, and online at www.amazon.com/instantvideo.
After today, one new episode of “Alpha House” will become available each Friday, exclusively on Prime Instant Video, with episode four available on Nov. 22.
