“Bosch: Legacy,” the First Original Series to Debut Under Amazon Freevee, Releases Extended Trailer for Highly Anticipated Spinoff Series, Premiering May 6

Amazon’s free streaming service will also add all seven seasons of Bosch to its content library on April 22

CULVER CITY, California – April 13, 2022 – Today, the highly anticipated spinoff series Bosch: Legacy released an extended trailer for its upcoming first season. Bosch: Legacy is the the first Original series to debut under Amazon Freevee, the new name for IMDb TV beginning April 27.

In the new trailer, fans get a closer look at how Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) and Money Chandler’s (Mimi Rogers) relationship has evolved as they both begin new chapters following the Carl Rogers case that shifted the dynamic of all their lives. The first four episodes of the series will be available beginning May 6, with two new episodes available each Friday through May 27.

Additionally, starting April 22, all seven seasons of the Prime Video Original Bosch will be available to watch on Amazon’s free streaming service. A Bosch FAST channel will also launch on April 22, allowing fans to continuously enjoy the program in an experience similar to broadcast television. The Bosch channel will join more than 60 other FAST channels on the service including thematically programmed ones such as popular movies and TV shows, comedy hits, and animated favorites, and recently added channels for Judy Justice, Forensic Files, and Unsolved Mysteries.

“With meaningful storytelling and distinctive characters, Bosch: Legacy is the ideal first Original to debut under our new brand,” said Lauren Anderson and Ryan Pirozzi, co-heads of content and programming for Freevee. “We look forward to sharing this new chapter with fans, and are thrilled to provide both loyal and new viewers the ability to watch all seven seasons of Bosch, available for free for the first time, both on demand and as a FAST channel on Amazon Freevee.”

Loosely based on the novel The Wrong Side of Goodbye from acclaimed author Michael Connelly, and a spinoff of the longest-running Prime Video Original Bosch, the first season of Bosch: Legacy follows former LAPD detective Harry Bosch as he begins a new chapter as a private investigator. His first job calls him to the estate of ailing billionaire Whitney Vance, where Bosch is tasked with finding Vance’s only potential heir. Along the way, Bosch finds himself clashing with powerful figures who have a vested interest in the heir not being found. Researching the family tree, Bosch uncovers shocking revelations that span generations, all while billions of dollars remain on the line. Without the badge and a preference for old-school tactics, Bosch finds an invaluable resource in Maurice “Mo” Bassi (Stephen A. Chang, Captain Marvel), a tech-forward gadget whiz who shares Bosch’s commitment to justice and fondness for smooth jazz.

Honey “Money” Chandler, reeling from the mistrial of Carl Rogers, is determined to bring Rogers to justice. In an unlikely alliance, Chandler and Bosch team up to conquer Rogers. But he has a long list of enemies, including the Russian Bratva, who are growing impatient on a promise Rogers made them.

Following in her father’s footsteps, Maddie Bosch (Madison Lintz), a rookie patrol officer with the LAPD, is paired with Reina Vasquez (Denise Sanchez, The Good Place), a no-nonsense, hard-charging training officer. As Maddie patrols the streets of Los Angeles, she grapples with what kind of cop she wants to be. Her father – who continues to live by the code that everybody counts, or nobody counts – believes the issue is clear: Being a cop is either a mission or just a job.

Bosch: Legacy from Fabel Entertainment 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) directed the spinoff pilot.

IMDb TV, soon to be named Freevee, uniquely offers premium Originals on a free streaming service, including the upcoming release of the buddy-cop drama Pretty Hard Cases, premiering April 22; the court program Judy Justice; and the newly released zany true-crime docuseries Bug Out.

IMDb TV Announces Rebrand to Amazon Freevee





IMDb TV Announces Rebrand to Amazon Freevee
Amazon’s free streaming service will announce additional greenlights at its NewFronts presentation on May 2.
[via press release from IMDb]
IMDb TV Announces Rebrand to Amazon Freevee

Freevee to add Original movies to growing content slate with a greenlight for the romantic comedy Love Accidentally, starring Brenda Song and Aaron O’Connell

Currently available in the U.S. and UK, Freevee to launch in Germany later this year

CULVER CITY, California – April 13, 2022 – Today, Amazon’s free streaming service announced a rebrand to Amazon Freevee, the new name for IMDb TV, beginning April 27. Over the last two years, the ad-supported video on demand (AVOD) service experienced rapid growth – tripling monthly active users – driven by rapid distribution across living room devices and mobile, an increasing slate of Originals, an always updating library of highly sought movies and TV shows, and over 60 FAST channels. Following a successful launch in the UK last September, Freevee will continue its international expansion with a launch in Germany later this year.

Freevee will grow its Originals slate by 70% in 2022, including the spinoff of the longest-running Original series for Prime Video, Bosch: Legacy, premiering May 6; a new home-design series, Hollywood Houselift with Jeff Lewis; Greg Garcia’s comedy series Sprung; the Australian crime drama Troppo; and High School, a scripted series adapted for television by Clea DuVall, produced by Plan B, and based on the New York Times best-selling memoir by Grammy-nominated, platinum recording artists Tegan and Sara Quin. Amazon’s free streaming service will announce additional greenlights at its NewFronts presentation on May 2.

“Over the past two years, we have seen tremendous growth for our AVOD service and are committed to bringing our audiences premium, free-to-consumer content,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “We’re looking forward to building on this momentum with an increasing slate of inventive and broadly appealing Originals, and are excited to establish Freevee as the premier AVOD service with content audiences crave.”

“Customers are increasingly shifting to streaming ad-supported premium content, and we have developed Freevee to deliver them highly sought content with half the commercials of traditional TV,” said Ashraf Alkarmi, director of Freevee. “Our new name clearly communicates who we are: An easy-to-navigate streaming service, available to users for free, whenever and wherever they choose to watch some of the greatest Original and licensed content available.”

Additionally, the free streaming service will add exclusive Original movies to its already robust slate, starting with a greenlight order for the workplace rom-com Love Accidentally, starring Brenda Song and Aaron O’Connell. In Love Accidentally, Alexa (Song) and Jason (O’Connell) are competing for a promotion at their advertising firm when each of their significant others breaks up with them. Thinking she has texted a friend, Alexa mistakenly sends Jason a brokenhearted message. The two spark up an anonymous relationship via text with neither aware of who the other really is. When the truth comes out, will they be able to put their rivalry aside and let true love prevail? Love Accidentally also features Denise Richards and Maxwell Caulfield, while Barry Barnholtz, Zelma Kiwi, and Jeffrey Schenck serve as executive producers.

Spanning drama and comedy, scripted and unscripted, Originals currently available on the service include buddy-cop drama Pretty Hard Cases, with a second season dropping April 22; the heist drama Leverage: Redemption; sports docuseries UNINTERRUPTED’s Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers; the spy thriller Alex Rider; the music docuseries Luke Bryan: My Dirt Road Diary; and the zany true-crime docuseries Bug Out. In addition, the service features Judy Justice, a court program helmed by television icon Judge Judy Sheindlin with a 120-episode Season One order. Judy Justice will continue to deliver customers new episodes every weekday through April 15 and has been picked up for a second season.

Previously, Amazon’s free streaming service announced greenlight orders for Primo, the coming-of-age comedy from Michael Schur and Shea Serrano, and On Call, the half-hour procedural drama from prolific TV producer Dick Wolf. Additionally, the service announced an AVOD first by licensing a deal with NBCU securing an exclusive network-window for films from Universal Filmed Entertainment Group’s 2020-21 theatrical slate, including titles such as Dolittle, The Invisible Man, Promising Young Woman, F9 (Fast & Furious 9), as well as rights to a package of animated movies, including Sing 2.

TikTok creators Railey and Seazynn Gilliland to play Tegan and Sara

Special guest stars Cobie Smulders and Kyle Bornheimer cast as twins’ parents

Series to begin production in Calgary starting March 21
CULVER CITY, California – March 17, 2022 – IMDb TV today announced the cast and March 21 start-of-production date for its coming-of-age series High School, a new Original show co-created by platinum recording artists Tegan and Sara Quin and executive producer Clea DuVall. TikTok creators and TV newcomers Railey and Seazynn Gilliland have been cast as series leads, portraying the high school versions of Tegan and Sara. Special guest stars Cobie Smulders and Kyle Bornheimer will also join the cast, playing the twins’ parents. The series will start filming on March 21 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Railey Gilliland will portray Tegan, a gregarious, confident, and extroverted teenager, who turns to music to explore her vulnerabilities. Seazynn Gilliland will portray Sara, a reserved, observant, and sensitive 15-year-old who, for the first time, starts to access her own self-confidence through playing music. Cobie Smulders will portray Simone, Tegan and Sara’s funny, sharp, and supportive mother, who strives to define herself outside of her family, and Kyle Bornheimer will portray Patrick, Simone’s boyfriend and Tegan and Sara’s pseudo-stepdad, who is a gentle everyman.

“It felt kismet when I saw Railey and Seazynn for the first time on TikTok,” said Tegan Quin. “There was something undeniably intriguing about them: They were sweet and original, impossible not to watch. I felt compelled to send Sara the video. ‘Too bad they don’t act,’ I texted her. Sara wasn’t deterred. They were performers, musical and dynamic. ‘You can’t teach charisma,’ Sara said, which they had in spades. Sara was relentless – these were the twins that had to play us. We were overjoyed when they were cast, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that it all worked out.”

Produced by Amazon Studios and Emmy and Academy Award-winning Plan B Entertainment, High School is a story about finding your own identity – a journey made even more complicated when you have a twin whose own struggle and self-discovery so closely mimics your own. Told through a backdrop of ’90s grunge and rave culture, the series weaves between parallel and discordant memories of twin sisters growing up down the hall from one another.

Tegan and Sara Quin, Clea DuVall, and Laura Kittrell will serve as executive producers alongside Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner from Plan B Entertainment. Plan B’s Carina Sposato is a co-executive producer. DuVall will also write and direct multiple episodes, including the pilot. Amazon Studios in association with Plan B Entertainment will produce the series.

IMDb TV uniquely offers premium Originals on a free streaming service, including the upcoming May 6 release of Bosch: Legacy, the spinoff of the Prime Video series Bosch; the April 22 premiere of the second season of the buddy-cop drama Pretty Hard Cases; and the newly released zany true-crime docuseries Bug Out. Spanning drama and comedy, scripted and unscripted, additional IMDb TV Originals currently available include the court program Judy Justice, sports docuseries UNINTERRUPTED’s Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers; the spy thriller Alex Rider; the music docuseries Luke Bryan: My Dirt Road Diary; and the heist drama Leverage: Redemption. Upcoming IMDb TV Originals include Australian crime drama Troppo; Greg Garcia’s comedy series Sprung; a new home design series from Jeff Lewis; and On Call, a half-hour drama from executive producer Dick Wolf.

CULVER CITY, California – March 10, 2022 – Legacy matters, and Harry Bosch is hell-bent on leaving behind a legacy he’s proud of. After leaving the Los Angeles Police Department as a detective, Bosch’s (Titus Welliver) captivating story continues, working with former enemy and top-notch attorney, Honey “Money” Chandler (Mimi Rogers, Mad Men). The only thing they can agree on? Finding justice. Meanwhile, his daughter, Maddie (Madison Lintz, The Walking Dead) follows in his footsteps as a rookie patrol officer with the LAPD. Bosch: Legacy, produced by Fabel Entertainment, premieres Friday, May 6 on IMDb TV, Amazon’s premium free streaming service.

Loosely based on the hybrid novel The Wrong Side of Goodbye from acclaimed author Michael Connelly, and a spinoff of the longest-running Prime Video Original, Bosch, the first season of Bosch: Legacy follows former LAPD detective Harry Bosch as he begins a new chapter as a private investigator. His first job calls him to the estate of ailing billionaire Whitney Vance, where Bosch is tasked with finding Vance’s only potential heir. Along the way, Bosch finds himself clashing with powerful figures who have a vested interest in the heir not being found. Researching the family tree, he uncovers shocking revelations that span generations, all while billions of dollars remain on the line. Without the badge and a preference for old-school tactics, Bosch finds an invaluable resource in Maurice “Mo” Bassi (Stephen A. Chang, Captain Marvel), a tech-forward gadget whiz who also shares Bosch’s fondness for smooth jazz and commitment to justice.

Following in her father’s footsteps, Maddie, a rookie patrol officer with the LAPD, is paired with Reina Vasquez (Denise Sanchez, The Good Place), a no-nonsense, hard-charging training officer. As Maddie patrols the streets of Los Angeles, she grapples with what kind of cop she wants to be. Her father – who continues to live by the code that everybody counts, or nobody counts – believes the issue is clear: Being a cop is either a mission or just a job.

Stephen A. Chang (Captain Marvel), Denise Sanchez (The Good Place), David Moses (Sanford and Son, Revenge), William Devane (Knots Landing, 24), Phil Morris (Seinfield, Love That Girl), Kate Burton (Grey’s Anatomy, Inventing Anna), Steven Flynn (JAG, The Practice), Aisha Kabia (Girl Meets World), Jai Rodriguez (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, How I Met Your Mother), Danielle Larracuente (Vida), and Michael Rose (Lovecraft Country, Days of Our Lives) join the series as recurring guest stars. Click here for character descriptions.

Bosch: Legacy from Fabel Entertainment 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) directed the spinoff pilot.

IMDb TV picks up Season Two of Drama Series “Almost Paradise” from Electric Entertainment

Season One currently available on the free streaming service

CULVER CITY, California – February 8, 2022 – IMDb TV, Amazon’s free streaming service, announced today the Season Two pickup of the action series Almost Paradise, created by Dean Devlin and Gary Rosen, who will also serve as co-showrunners. The drama follows Alex Walker (Christian Kane, Leverage: Redemption), a former U.S. DEA agent who, after his partner’s betrayal and a life-threatening battle with hypertension, is forced into early retirement and relocates to a small tropical island in the Philippines. Currently, Season One of Almost Paradise is exclusively available to stream on-demand on IMDb TV in the U.S.

Once the DEA’s most resourceful undercover operative, Walker now runs the gift shop in the island’s luxury resort hotel. While he manages to transition from top DEA agent to laid-back islander, the luxury resort has attracted the 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, Kai Mendoza (Samantha Richelle, Syd) and Ernesto Alamares (Arthur Acuña, The Bourne Legacy), or running into people from his old life. And the problem is, he likes it.

Almost Paradise is executive produced by Dean Devlin, Gary Rosen, Marc Roskin, and Rachel Olschan-Wilson.

IMDb TV offers premium Originals on a free streaming service, including the recently launched second season of the spy thriller Alex Rider and the second season of the sports docuseries UNINTERRUPTED’s Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers.

Themed “Catch the Light,” the groundbreaking praise and worship extravaganza is an annual highlight of Super Bowl weekend, hosted this season by inspirational figure Sarah Jakes Roberts and funnyman DC Young Fly. This unique annual praise fest highlights NFL players and their faith, with uplifting songs of joy and shout-worthy, never-before-seen performances and mashups. Viewers are offered a rare glimpse into the spiritual lives of their favorite NFL players, as well as what inspires them to greatness each day. The hour-long show was taped in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Dallas as a concession to the still ongoing COVID pandemic.

“This 23-year journey with the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration is a testament to how faith can grow the seed of a dream into a reality far greater than any plan we might have set out to achieve. Despite every obstacle placed in our path, our faith in this vision has been rewarded with this anointed production that has touched the lives of so many,” said Melanie Few, Founder and Executive Producer.

Super Bowl Gospel Celebration is making a special presentation to the 2022 Lifetime of Inspiration Award recipient Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders, sponsored by the Amazon Black Business Accelerator Program. The current head coach for Jackson State University’s football team, two-time SuperBowl champion, Pro Football Hall of Famer, and Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year is being honored for his commitment to bringing more visibility to HBCU sports franchises and reinvigorating HBCU sports into high-profile must-watch events. Coach Prime is one of only four NFL Players to ever receive this prestigious award.

“As we approach our 23rd anniversary, I am so very thankful for the support and partnership of the National Football League. I am also excited for the amazing partners that have joined forces to help elevate this brand. It is truly a privilege to honor Coach Prime as I have followed him his entire career and watched him be a light to others, both on and off the field,” added Few, the only woman and person of color that produces an NFL sanctioned event during Super Bowl week.

“Super Bowl Gospel provides an opportunity for our players to celebrate their faith,” said Arthur McAfee, the NFL’s senior vice president for player engagement. “A large number of our players are of faith, and they celebrate that faith many ways during the course of the game and throughout the season. You may see them take a knee and pray, either prior to or after the game. This is one of the natural connections we have to help players elevate their platform.”

This year’s production features a roster of anointed performances including a Gospel medley from multiple Grammy Award winner CeCe Winans; a duet between Pastor Mike, Jr. and multi-talented entertainer CeeLo Green; Mali Music joining singer/actress Chloe in a heartfelt collaboration to salute individuals impacted by cancer; singer/songwriter Natalie Grant; and a cypher led by two-time Grammy-winning Christian rapper LeCrae. Songstress Regina Belle is joining the famed NFL Players Choir for an inspiring song selection closing out the show.

Other slated guest appearances include Seattle Seahawks Quarterback – Russell Wilson, Cleveland Browns Defensive End – Myles Garrett, New Orleans Saints Defensive End – Cam Jordan, Minnesota Vikings Quarterback – Kirk Cousins, Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver – Stefon Diggs, New England Patriots Linebacker and Defensive Player of the Year contender – Matt Judon.

The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration will be available to stream on Prime Video in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, and on IMDb TV in the U.S. and the U.K.
