Here Is Your Amazon Original Programming Class of 2016
The Man in the High Castle and Red Oaks have been picked up for new seasons.
2015 might be ending in two weeks, but the future of television is looking mighty bright after Amazon Prime announced the eight series that they picked up for the new year. Three of those were children’s shows (Danger & Eggs, Niko and the Sword of Light, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie), but the remaining five are full of big names and exciting plots. While it appears that Giovanni Ribisi/Bryan Cranston project Sneaky Pete didn’t make the cut, Sacha Baron Cohen‘s imaginary friend comedy Highston, politically charged drama Patriot, and the 1969 newsroom program Good Girls Revolt made the cut.
Two of the more exciting programs to be given the green light by Amazon are Z: The Beginning of Everything—which follows the blossoming love between F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda (played by Christina Ricci)—and Tig Notaro‘s comedy One Mississippi (Louis CK and Diablo Cody are also involved).
There are no set premiere dates for any of these programs, but expect to see ads for them all very soon.
