Amazon and CBS will partnering up to offer online-streaming for the new murder-mystery series “American Gothic”. The series, which will also be available via CBS All Access, will be made available for free to all Amazon Prime members in the United States. Viewers will be able to stream or download each episodes just four days after the initial broadcast on CBS.
American Gothic comes from creator Corinne Brinkerhoff (Jane the Virgin, The Good Wife), and is a joint venture between CBS Television Studios and Amblin Partners. The new show will be a 13-episode summer series, which will begin airing on CBS Wednesday, June 22.
The story centers on a prominent Boston family that is attempting to redefine itself in the wake of a chilling discovery that links their recently deceased patriarch to a string of murders spanning decades, amid the mounting suspicion that one of them may have been his accomplice.
The series stars Juliet Rylance (The Knick, Sinister), Antony Starr (Banshee, Outrageous Fortune), Virginia Madsen (Sideways, Candyman), Justin Chatwin (Shameless, Orphan Black), Megan Ketch (The Good Wife, Jane the Virgin), Elliot Knight (Once Upon a Time, How to Get Away with Murder), Stephanie Leonidas (Mirrormask, Defiance), and Gabriel Bateman (Annabelle, Checkmate).
Comedic-thriller BrainDead will also premiere this summer, starting on Monday, June 13, 2016. The new series comes from creators Robert King and Michelle King (The Good Wife) and will also be available exclusively on Prime Video just four days after each episode’s initial broadcast.
BrianDead stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead (The Returned, Mercy Street), Danny Pino (Cold Case, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Aaron Tveit (Next to Normal, Gossip Girl), Tony Shalhoub (Monk, Men in Black), Nikki M. James (The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, The Blacklist), and Johnny Ray Gill (Grand Theft Auto V, The Purge: The Morning After).
In the past Amazon Prime has been a perfect fit for CBS. The network chose Prime as the exclusive streaming destination for its former summer-series “Under the Dome”. Viewers will be able to watch the episodes through the Amazon Video app for TVs, Amazon Fire TV, and mobile devices. You can also watch the episodes online at amazon.com/primevideo. Additionally, both American Gothic and BrainDead can be downloaded to iPhones, Android phones and tablets and Fire devices for offline viewing at no additional charge.
