Amazon Orders Pilot from ‘The Shield’ Creator Shawn Ryan (Report)
With its third pilot season finalized, Amazon Studios is already looking ahead to a fourth.
According to Deadline, Amazon has ordered a pilot for “Mad Dogs,” a black comedy/thriller based on a popular British series of the same name. The show follows a group four friends who travel to Belize to meet up with an old friend, only for things to take an unexpected and dark turn.
In the UK, the show aired for four seasons. The US version will come from Sony Pictures Television and Left Bank, with the original show’s creator Cris Cole and “The Shield” creator Shawn Ryan serving as executive producers. Emmy Award-winning Charles McDougall will direct. This is not the first pilot for Amazon to be produced by Sony Pictures Television; the company was behind the “Zombieland” spinoff, which ultimately did not get picked up.Tags: Amazon, Amazon Prime Instant Video, Amazon Studios, Left Bank, Shawn Ryan, Sony Pictures Television
