Noir these days is really hard to pull off. One of the oldest genres in the books, the tropes are so easily identifiable, so ingrained into our culture, that any filmmaker aspiring to do something with the form needs to be wary of falling into the trap of unintentional parody. You can have only so many hatted, quiet hero-cops before you realize it’s time to retire a character type that perfected by Humphrey Boga… Read More

Netflix and Amazon Battle for Your Kids

Liz Shannon Miller

I didn’t learn to swim for a long time growing up, because of “She-Ra: Princess of Power.” See, I was born in the 1980s, and when I was five, my parents signed me up for swim lessons. But those classes meant I had to skip my favorite animated princess adventure at least once a week, and I threw a temper tantrum so epic that my parents basically gave up on the idea until I was older and more reasonable. (Sorry I was a brat, Mom and Dad.)

That story won’t make any sense to the generation currently in diapers, because between DVR, DVD, and VOD, they will have little-to-no concept of television programming that can’t be time-shifted. And that’s just what Netflix and Amazon are banking on.

One of the more interesting battles over the last six months has been between the two companies and … Read More

Amazon Studios Greenlights Five of its Original Pilots

Chris Dignes

As we previously reported, Amazon Studios picked up “Alpha House” and “Betas” for their comedy shows. Now the company has announced that production will also begin on children’s shows “Annebots,” “Creative Galaxy,” and “Tumbleaf,” all arriving on Prime Instant Video later this year and into early 2014. The announcement left nine of Amazon’s other pilots behind.

Gary Trudeau enthusiastically trumpeted “Alpha House” production: “As the future of episodic TV packs up and moves to Seattle, we hope the audience will continue to have as much fun watching the show as we have making it.” Sharing a similar enthusiasm, Michael London, executive producer of “Betas,” said, “This… Read More

Amazon Originals Publishes 14 Pilots Online

Staff

Amazon Studios, the film and television development arm of the online retailer, has debuted 14 new pilots on Amazon Instant Video and Prime Instant Video in the US, as well as on the Lovefilm streaming service in the UK. The company’s test pilot program, which features eight comedies and six children’s shows, is an attempt to bring television-like original programming to customers, not unlike what Netflix is attempting with its own original programming slate.

What’s different here is the approach.

Netflix, in a fashion similar to how TV networks conduct business, picks the shows it wants to fund, while keeping in mind h… Read More
