Amazon’s ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ wins 8 Emmy awards

Amazon’s original series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won big at the 70th PrimeTime Emmy Awards by taking home more major wins than any other show. The biggest award was the show’s win for Outstanding Comedy Series and Rachel Brosnahan won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her headline role. Show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino won the Emmys for both Directing and Writing for a Comedy Series for her contributions to the show.

Alex Borstein won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Susie Myerson in the series. The final three Emmys were awarded during the creative arts ceremony for Casting, Music Supervision, and Single-Camera Picture Editing.

Amazon cancels ‘The Dangerous Book for Boys’ after one season

Amazon has decided not to renew their original series The Dangerous Book for Boys, according to Deadline. The series, which was co-created by Bryan Cranston and Greg Mottola and based on the popular kids book of the same name, only aired one season. Reviews for the series weren’t bad but also weren’t stellar. It had a 71% fresh score with critics on Rotten Tomatoes, a 6.1 out of 10 score on IMDB, and a 3.7 out of 5 score on Amazon from a paltry 265 reviewers. The book first went into development as a series in 2004 and almost became a movie in 2007 until it was finally picked up by Amazon last year as one of their straight-to-series originals.

Amazon original series ‘Sneaky Pete’ renewed for a 3rd season

The renewal is no surprise since the series has received great reviews with a 95% fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes, an 8.3 out of 10-star rating on IMDB, and a 4.6 out of 5-star rating on Amazon. The second season of the show debuted in March earlier this year, so, hopefully, that means we’ll get the third season early next year.

Amazon will no longer release TV pilots for customer feedback

Amazon has had a long history of releasing Pilot Seasons where they ask for feedback on single episode TV pilots to help decide which shows to turn into a full season run. It has been an unusual practice that other studios don’t do and now it has come to an end, according to Entertainment Weekly. Amazon Studio head Jennifer Salke told reporters “we’ll use our own testing barometers and some user data but the public voting process has been set aside for now.” The season for the change is not to eliminate the feedback, but to speed up the time to release by eliminating pilots. By making decisions internally on shows, like the rest of the industry, and going straight to series, it should help get seasons done sooner and out to customers.

Amazon saves ‘The Expanse’ by picking it up for Season 4

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced yesterday at the International Space Development Conference that “The Expanse is saved.” The space drama was canceled by SciFi Network earlier this month after airing three seasons. A campaign to save the show by its fans and creators began soon after which specifically targeted Amazon and Bezos, who is said to be a fan of the series. Rumors that Amazon was in talks to pick up the show began circling earlier this week and now it’s official that there will be a 4th season of The Expanse and it will be an Amazon Prime original. The first two seasons of the series are already available on Prime Video and it’s probably safe to say the third season will be added soon enough.

Amazon reportedly in talks to pickup Season 4 of ‘The Expanse’

After SyFy Network announced the cancellation of The Expanse 10 days ago after three well received seasons, fans and the shows creators have launched a campaign to save The Expanse by finding it a new home. Those efforts have included numerous tweets directed at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to continue the show as an Amazon original series. It appears that those efforts have paid off because numerous Hollywood news outlets, including Variety and Deadline, are reporting that Amazon is in talks to pickup the series for a fourth season. It’s not a done deal yet, as some news organizations are incorrectly reporting. Writer and Producer of The Expanse, Daniel Abdraham, tweeted just minutes ago that Variety’s headline, which states Amazon is in talks to revive the show, is more accurate than The Hollywood Reporter’s headline, which states that it is a done deal.
