Amazon this week plans to add 37 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including an original drama with an interesting twist.
The new title list for the week will include Absentia (pictured above), an Amazon original 10-episode drama starring Stana Katic as an FBI agent who disappears while hunting a serial killer. When she returns six years later, she can’t remember much of her absence and she is suddenly implicated in a series of murders.
Absentia was filmed in Bulgaria (although set in Boston), and it was the featured selection at last summer’s 57th Monte Carlo Television Festival.
Other notables this week: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, the Clint Eastwood ‘Italian spaghetti’ western that helped put the actor on the map; and Manhattan, Woody Allen’s comedic love letter to his favorite city.
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.
