Amazon Prime Adding 59 New Titles In January

Amazon plans to add 59 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup in January, including three original programs.

The new titles will include Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams (pictured above), an Amazon original anthology series based on the late sci-fi writer’s writings. Electric Dreams, which will star such TV A-Listers as Bryan Cranston, Steve Buscemi, Terrence Howard and Anna Paquin, will include 10 separate episodes featuring man (and woman) pitted against technology.

The show premiered this fall in the United Kingdom, but Amazon has the first rights in the United States, which enables the company to label it an ‘Amazon original.’

Also notable in January: The 2018 Rose Parade Hosted by Cord & Tish. Produced by the humor site, Funny or Die, the live show will feature comedians Will Farrell and Molly Shannon as Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan, two fictitious local broadcasters who get a little too excited about the floats. The Amazon original show will be available in both 4K and HDR, as will Electric Dreams.

Amazon in January will also debut part two of Just Add Magic, an Amazon original family series featuring two pre-teens who discover a magical recipe book.

Note: Amazon Prime streaming titles are free to Amazon Prime members. The service, which also includes free 2-day shipping on thousands of Amazon products, costs $99 a year. You can also now order Amazon Prime streaming for $8.99 a month, but the monthly service does not include the other Prime benefits. You can sign up here.
