IMDb TV SETS APRIL 2 PREMIERE FOR “MOMENT OF TRUTH,” THE NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN STORY BEHIND THE TRAGIC MURDER OF JAMES JORDAN

Daniel Green, Who Maintains His Innocence 25 Years After Murder Conviction, Currently Appealing Recent Court Decision Which Denied Hearing to Present New Evidence

CULVER CITY, Calif. – March 5, 2021 – IMDb TV today announced the April 2 premiere date for the Original true-crime docu-series Moment of Truth, directed by Matthew Perniciaro and Clay Johnson. The series tells the never-before-seen story behind the murder of beloved husband and father, James Jordan, as well as the history of social injustice in Robeson County, North Carolina, where two teenagers, Larry Demery and Daniel Green, were charged and convicted of the crime. All episodes of Moment of Truth will premiere on Friday, April 2 exclusively on IMDb TV, Amazon’s premium free streaming service.

The five-part series analyzes and presents new compelling information on the 1993 murder of James Jordan, father of NBA superstar Michael Jordan. The crime shocked the nation, creating a media frenzy and countless speculations and conspiracy theories. Through the use of exclusive archival footage and first-person interviews, Moment of Truth examines all aspects of the case – from the initial crime, to the arrest, trial and conviction of Larry Demery and Daniel Green, and continuing to the current day appeal by Green, who maintains his innocence nearly three decades later.

Moment of Truth also delves into the checkered past of Robeson County, North Carolina, including law enforcement corruption exposed in “Operation Tarnished Badge” that resulted in the conviction of 22 deputies from the local sheriff’s office in 2002.

The series includes on-camera interviews with Green and his lawyer, Christine Mumma, executive director of the North Carolina Center on Actual Innocence. Green’s post-conviction efforts have involved years of appeals and multiple, detailed motions that recently culminated with a North Carolina Superior Court judge denying Green an opportunity to present his evidence of innocence. That decision is currently being appealed.

For the first time, the docu-series shares:

· Archival footage from WRAL-TV/Capitol Broadcasting Company that has never been released for other productions or seen outside of North Carolina since 1996.

· Critical court documents and evidence photos from the case.

· Never-before-released trial audio, which was digitized from the original recordings. Jimmy Goodmon and Shelly Leslie of Capitol Broadcasting Company and Matthew Perniciaro and Michael Sherman of Bow and Arrow Entertainment serve as executive producers. Episodes 1-2 were co-directed and co-written by Perniciaro and Capitol Broadcasting’s Clay Johnson, while Perniciaro solely directed Episodes 3-5. Johnson serves as a producer on the series.

Recently, IMDb TV debuted the Original docuseries, Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers and announced a Bosch spinoff for the free streaming service. Additional Originals coming to IMDb TV in 2021 include the crime drama Leverage: Redemption, the second season of the popular spy thriller Alex Rider, and the Untitled Judge Judy Sheindlin Project — the streaming debut for no-nonsense, expeditious Judge Sheindlin and her signature adjudication style.

CULVER CITY, Calif., March. 3, 2021 – IMDb TV, Amazon’s premium free streaming service, today announced it has picked up a new spinoff series of the fan-favorite Amazon Original series Bosch.

With a deep and complicated history between this unlikely pair, they must work together to do what they can agree on – finding justice.

“To say I am ecstatic is an understatement! To be given the opportunity to tell more Harry Bosch stories is a tremendous gift,” said Titus Welliver, series star and Executive Producer. “The process of shooting season 7 with the shadow of it being our final loomed heavily so when the idea was presented to continue with the possibility of a spinoff, without hesitation I said, ‘let’s go.’ To all of our Bosch fans, thank for your incredible support for all these years and I can promise you the ride will only get better!”

I can’t wait to get started.”

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to continue our relationship with Amazon Studios, Michael and now IMDb TV to tell more of Harry Bosch’s exciting story,” said Henrik Bastin, CEO, Fabel Entertainment. “The final season of Bosch is one of the best yet, and while the spin-off will be a new show with its distinct voice and tone, our passionate fans will feel right at home.”

“While the current chapter of Bosch is coming to a close, this gritty, captivating story continues in both new and familiar ways. IMDb TV is the perfect home to extend the longstanding Amazon Studios relationship with the immensely talented Michael Connelly, Eric Overmyer, Tom Bernardo, Henrik Bastin, Pieter Jan Brugge, Titus Welliver, Mimi Rogers and Madison Lintz,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, Co-Heads of Content and Programming, IMDb TV. “Bosch has entertained fans season after season through vibrant storytelling and distinctive characters, and we are thrilled to evolve Bosch and ‘Money’ Chandler’s adventures through a new, ambitious IMDb TV Original and the first series spinoff for Amazon Studios.”

Produced by Fabel Entertainment, the Bosch spinoff for IMDb TV is executive produced by Michael Connelly, Eric Overmyer, Tom Bernardo, Henrik Bastin, Pieter Jan Brugge, Titus Welliver and Zetna Fuentes. Fuentes (Bosch, Jane the Virgin, Shameless) will also direct the spinoff pilot.

“ALMOST PARADISE” FROM ELECTRIC ENTERTAINMENT AVAILABLE TO STREAM ON IMDb TV





“ALMOST PARADISE” FROM ELECTRIC ENTERTAINMENT AVAILABLE TO STREAM ON IMDb TV, AMAZON’S FREE STREAMING SERVICE BEGINNING FEBRUARY 1, 2021

Los Angeles, CA – January 20, 2021 – Electric Entertainment, the Los Angeles based production, distribution and post-production company, is proud to announce its hit crime series “Almost Paradise,” will premiere on IMDb TV, Amazon’s free streaming service beginning Feb 1. This marks the first digital platform outside of Electric’s own ElectricNow channel and app, that fans of the action adventure series can watch Season 1 in its entirety for free. The announcement was made today by Dean Devlin, CEO of Electric Entertainment.

Dean Devlin states “We have established a wonderful relationship with Amazon’s IMDb TV. This marks our third partnership with the free streaming service — the first being the re-imagining of the hit TV series “Leverage 2.0,” and secondly, the streaming of all three seasons of “The Outpost.” We can’t be more pleased with how our relationship is blossoming and look forward to more opportunities with the rapidly growing AVOD service.”

Almost Paradise originally premiered in the U.S. in March of 2020 on the broadcast network, WGN America. The series stars Christian Kane (The Librarians, Leverage, Angel) as Alex Walker, a former U.S. DEA agent who was forced into early retirement. Once the DEA’s most resourceful undercover operative, the combination of his partner’s betrayal and a life-threatening battle with hypertension sent him as far from the madness as he can go… a small tropical island in the Philippine Archipelago. He now runs the gift shop at the island’s luxury resort hotel, gets his disability payments at the nearby US Air Force base, and generally manages his transition from Jason Bourne to Jimmy Buffett. But, the island’s luxury resorts attract rich, powerful, and sometimes criminal elite from around the world, often on a collision course with Alex. Despite his best efforts to begin a tranquil new life, he’s pulled back into a world of dangerous people and deadly situations, either through his friends in the local police department or running into people from his old life. And the problem is: he likes it.

“Almost Paradise” will debut on IMDb TV February 1, 2021.

IMDb TV AND AMAZON STUDIOS GREENLIGHTS JUDGE JUDY SHEINDLIN TO PRESIDE OVER A NEW COURT PROGRAM FOR A FREE STREAMING AUDIENCE

CULVER CITY, Calif. – Oct 29, 2020 – IMDb TV and Amazon Studios today announced an Untitled Judge Judy Sheindlin Project to stream exclusively in the U.S. on IMDb TV, Amazon’s free streaming service.

A dominant force in syndication for the last 25 years, Judge Judy Sheindlin will preside over a new court program for Amazon’s streaming audience. The Untitled Judge Judy Sheindlin Project will feature no-nonsense, expeditious Judge Sheindlin’s signature adjudication style with a new array of cases, litigants and judgments.

“I’m over the moon to be in business with Amazon Studios and continuing this incredible journey with them on a new platform is so exciting,” said Judge Judy Sheindlin. “I used to yell at my husband, Jerry, for all the packages he had ordered from Amazon every day. I have enough mouthwash in the cabinets to keep the entire planet’s breath fresh until the next millennium. The doorbell never stops ringing. The dogs don’t even bark at the delivery people anymore. After I signed this deal, I apologized to Jerry. Who would have thought that the Sheindlin’s and Amazon would be mishpachah?”

“Judge Judy Sheindlin is a TV icon and visionary who has entertained millions of fans for decades,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, Co-Heads of Content and Programming for IMDb TV. “As we build the IMDb TV slate of high-quality, ambitious Amazon Studios Originals, we are delighted to deliver customers a court program from the legendary Judge Sheindlin who, without a doubt, is the very best in the business.”

“For over two decades our honor, Judge Judy, has dominated broadcast television. Now America’s Judge will continue to reach her millions of fans through IMDb TV, Amazon’s free streaming service,” said Scott Koondel, CEO of Sox Entertainment. “I’m thrilled to help with the transition of this entertainment phenom from over-the-air to over-the-top television.”

Previously, IMDb TV and Amazon Studios announced the Nov. 13 premiere of the spy-thriller Alex Rider, an Original series based on Anthony Horowitz’s best-selling book franchise. In development is a half-hour coming-of-age series based on High School, the NY Times best-selling memoir by Grammy-nominated, Platinum recording artists Tegan and Sara Quin, adapted by Clea DuVall for Amazon Studios and Plan B Entertainment. In addition, a reimagining of the crime drama Leverage will debut in 2021.

Coming of Age Spy Series Alex Rider to Premiere as an IMDb TV Original in the U.S. and as an Amazon Original for Germany, Austria and Latin America

Based on the best-selling book franchise with 20+MM books sold worldwide

Alex Rider is produced by Eleventh Hour Films and Sony Pictures Television

LOS ANGELES — IMDb TV and Amazon Prime Video have secured the exclusive U.S., Germany, Austria and Latin America rights to Alex Rider, a new coming of age spy-thriller series based on Point Blanc, the second novel in the Alex Rider franchise, which has become a global phenomenon selling over 20 million copies worldwide. Alex Rider will premiere on IMDb TV in the U.S. on Nov. 13 and on Prime Video in Germany and Austria on August 7 and across Latin America later this year.

Produced by Eleventh Hour Films and Sony Pictures Television, which also distributes worldwide, the series stars Otto Farrant as Alex Rider, a London based teenager who has unknowingly been trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage. Pressured to help investigate his uncle’s death, and how it connects to the assassination of two high-profile billionaires, Alex reluctantly assumes a new identity and goes undercover in a remote boarding school called Point Blanc. Isolated far above the snowline in the French Alps, Point Blanc claims to set the troubled teenage children of the ultra-rich back onto the right track. As Alex digs deeper, he discovers the students are in fact the subjects of a disturbing plan which Alex will have to risk his life to stop.

“With a 20 year literary history, the brand and iconic character of Alex Rider resonates with fans around the world,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, Co-Heads of Content and Programming for IMDb TV. “We couldn’t be happier to have IMDb TV as the exclusive U.S. home for this franchise and are excited to deliver customers a beautifully-executed, coming of age thriller featuring this dynamic ensemble cast.”

“I’ve been thrilled by the response Alex Rider has received on Amazon Prime Video in the UK,” said franchise author and executive producer Anthony Horowitz. “Everyone agrees that Otto Farrant is the perfect Alex and that the show absolutely nails the book. It’s everything I could have hoped for and I’m optimistic that viewers in the U.S., Germany, Latin America and many other territories will agree.”

“Amazon has been a fantastic partner for Alex Rider in the UK, and we are delighted to extend our partnership to the U.S., Latin America, Australia, Germany and Austria,” said Sony Pictures Television’s Wayne Garvie, President of International Production and Keith Le Goy, President of Distribution & Networks. “We are excited for audiences to join the thrill ride and journey of discovery that this brilliantly created show offers.”

In addition to Farrant, Alex Rider stars Stephen Dillane as Alan Blunt, Vicky McClure as Mrs. Jones, Brenock O’Connor as Tom Harris, Ronkẹ Adékọluẹjọ as Jack Starbright, Ace Bhatti as Crawley, Marli Siu as Kyra, Nyasha Hatendi as Smithers and Andrew Buchan as Ian Rider.

Anthony Horowitz, the author of the franchise, serves as an Executive Producer alongside Jill Green, Eve Gutierrez, series writer Guy Burt, and Andreas Prochaska, who directed multiple episodes of the series. Christopher Smith also directed several episodes of the series.

Alex Rider premiered on Prime Video in the UK and Ireland on June 4 and quickly became a popular summer binge. The series will premiere on Prime Video Australia on July 31.
