Amazon Drops Previously Ordered Series, ‘The After’
Last March, Amazon Studios ordered “The After,” a sci-fi series from “The X-Files” creator Chris Carter. Recently, however, the streaming service backtracked and dropped the order, according to a report from Variety.
The series was part of Amazon’s ongoing initiative to create original, TV-quality programming based on what its viewers watch and like. “The After” was chosen with five other series after the pilot went up on Amazon in February 2014.
The pilot episode included cast members such as Jamie Kennedy, Adrian Pasdar, Sharon Lawrence, Andrew Howards, Aldis Hodge, and Jaina Lee Ortiz. The show would have followed eight central characters as they navigated a surreal and dangerous landscape.
Amazon didn’t comment on the company’s reason for dropping the show.Tags: Amazon, Amazon Studios, Chris Carter, The After
