Amazon's putting a hard sell on Amazon Prime: The same week its critically-acclaimed series Transparent returns for a second season, Amazon announced it will now offer Starz and Showtime access to its streaming service subscribers.
And now Amazon has announced a January 22 premiere date for Mad Dogs, a dark comedy based on a British series of the same name about a group of college friends who reunite for an ill-fated adventure some years later. The cast includes some of the Gen Y greats like Billy Zane (Zoolander), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos), and Steve Zahn (Shattered Glass.) Amazon Prime subscribers can stream the pilot episode now before Amazon drops all 10 episodes in January.
