Amazon Studios Sets First Four Content Projects
Amazon Studios, the content development effort being run out of Amazon.com's Los Angeles arm, the People's Production Company, has set the first four projects being developed by the company. According to Amazon, it has selected one children's show and three comedies as the first four content development efforts at the company. Amazon said it will provide $10,000 as option extensions to the creators of The 100 Deaths of Mort Grimley (Angel Castlilo), Doomsday (Nathan Thomas), Magic Monkey Billionaire (Diana Wright), and Buck Plaidsheet (Frank Suarez and Clark Stubbs). All four were selected as part of Amazon Studios' crowdsourced content efforts, which will eventually be used to popular Amazon's own library of original content and its streaming media service, Amazon Prime Instant Video.
