Ahh the sweet and terrible heat of Summer is here. If you are like me, you cope with the unbearable Summer months by staying indoors and watching Netflix. If you are not like me and actually like going outside, well you still have Netflix and Amazon for those late nights after being outside all day.

Amazon Prime Dropping BBC Programming

amazonprime

On February 15, Amazon Prime will be removing “Doctor Who” and all other BBC Programming from the streaming service. The move comes as the service is making a push to bring more exclusive content to viewers.

Amazon is removing the programming because BBC shows are already available on other streaming services such as Netflix. Now, Amazon is hoping to focus more on bringing and creating content that isn’t available anywhere else. Therefore, when the licensing agreement between Amazon Prime and BBC expires in on the 15, there will be no renewal.

The current commitment to creating exclusive content is already seeing an influx for the service as Prime membership grew last year by roughly 53 percent. Currently, Amazon is the exclusive home for “Hannibal,” “24,” “The Americans,” and “Justified.” It also closed an exclusive deal to stream the BBC’s” Orphan Black,” which will remain on the service.

Amazon Prime Instant Video Greenlights First Drama Pilots

 

amazoninstantseries

Amazon has officially announced that its Prime instant section has green lit a brand new hour-long drama series pilot. The upcoming series is called “Bosch” and is based on the book series written by Michael Connelly. It will be written by Emmy-nominated Eric Overmyer (“The Wire,” “Treme”) and Michael Connelly, and “The After,” written and directed by Emmy-nominee Chris Carter (“The X-Files”).

Viewers can watch Amazon Instant Video pilots at no cost and provide feedback that will help determine which pilots should be produced as series to air exclusively on Prime Instant Video and Amazon’s LOVEFiLM in the UK in early 2014.

“Bosch” follows a relentless LAPD homicide detective as he pursues the killer of a 13-year-old boy while standing trial in federal court on accusations that he murdered a suspected serial killer in cold blood. Bosch will be played by Titus Welliver and the pilot will also star Annie Wersching, Amy Price-Francis and Jamie Hector. Henrik Bastin of Fabrik Entertainment (“The Killing”) is producing and Jim McKay will direct.

Author Michael Connelly, said,

“Sharing this story with television audiences is very exciting, something that’s been twenty years in the making. It is amazing to have it come together with the synergy of Amazon—the world’s largest bookstore—along with accomplished creator and showrunner, Eric Overmyer, and Fabrik, a production company dedicated to loyalty to the books. Harry Bosch can be in no better hands.”

Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios, said,

“We are very excited to be working with creators like Michael Connelly and Chris Carter, both epic storytellers in their own right. For the first time we are bringing Amazon customers hour-long programming and we can’t wait to hear what they think of these new stories.”
