A week after renaming its UK streaming service LoveFilm to Amazon Prime Instant Video, Amazon is bringing its political comedy series “Alpha House” to the market.
“Alpha House,” featuring the likes of John Goodman, Bill Murray (in a guest role), Wanda Sykes, and Cynthia Nixon, is a story of a group of Republican senators who live in the same house in DC. The show was created by Garry Trudeau and was the first to be picked up as part of Amazon Studios’ ongoing original programming initiative. A second season was confirmed by Trudeau and the cast earlier this month.
The show debuts in the UK tomorrow, February 26, to coincide with the “launch” of Prime Instant Video in the region. All 11 half-hour episodes of the first season will be available “for free” to Prime subscribers.
