Amazon original series ‘The Last Tycoon’ to premiere July 28

Amazon has set the premiere date for their original series The Last Tycoon as July 28. The pilot of the nine-episode adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel was part of Amazon’s pilot season a year ago and was greenlit shortly after. You can watch the show’s first trailer here, which Amazon just released this morning.

The Last Tycoon tells the story of Monroe Stahr, played by Matt Bomer, a dashing and talented studio executive who struggles to find his place within the movie industry and the world. Monroe is caught in a power struggle with his boss and mentor, Pat Brady, played by Kelsey Grammer, when a young Irish waitress, played by Lily Collins, catches his eye. Her spark just might be the fuel he needs to create a truly great and important film in his quest for power.”

Amazon cancels its first live TV show ‘Style Code Live’

Amazon has decided to end their first live TV show, Style Code Live, which aired every weeknight since its debut in March of last year. The QVC-like experimental show consisted of regular hosts Lyndsey Rodrigues, Rachel Smith, Frankie Grande, and celebrity guests giving style and beauty tips which featured products that could be purchased directly from the Amazon page where the show could be streamed for free. While Amazon has built up a strong stable of on-demand original programming, they haven’t manage to find the same success with live content. That said, it’s probably safe to say this won’t be the last live show created by Amazon.

Amazon’s original series ‘The Tick’ to premiere August 25

Amazon’s upcoming new original series The Tick has been assigned a premiere date. The first season will debut on August 25th for Prime members to enjoy. A new, and very short, promo video for the announcement has been published on Amazon’s YouTube account.

The series will premiere almost one year to the date after the pilot was released. The series was greenlit, along with Jean-Claude Van Johnson and I Love Dick, a month later, making the turn around from approval to debut quite short. Not as short as I Love Dick though, which will be premiering 3 months sooner on May 12, despite both being greenlit together. No word yet on when Jean-Claude Van Johnson will premiere.
