‘Betas’ Hits Amazon Instant VideoBy: Josh Wolford - November 22, 2013
Amazon’s second original series is available to stream today. You can now head on over to Amazon Instant Video and watch the first three episodes of Betas.
Betas in Amazon Studios’ second original series to debut, following last week’s debut of the political comedy Alpha House – a debut, per Amazon, that went pretty damn well. According to the company, Alpha House was the most watched show on Amazon during its debut weekend.
Here’s Amazon’s official synopsis for Betas:
Set in the land of Silicon Valley start-ups where the right algorithm can make you king, Betas, written by Evan Endicott and Josh Stoddard, follows four computer geeks and their quest for nerd fame as they attempt to crack the ultimate code. Ed Begley Jr., Jon Daly, Joe Dinicol, Margo Harshman, Charlie Saxton and Karan Soni star in the pilot.
Like Alpha House, the first three episodes of Betas will be available to stream, for free, all at once. After that, Amazon has elected to go with a week-to-week release schedule, premiering one every seven days. If you want to watch the rest of the series past the first three episodes, you have to be an Amazon Prime member.
“Betas has been an incredibly fun show to create for customers. We have a stellar cast of comedians and actors, and we think customers are going to enjoy it,” said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. “The chemistry these guys have on set definitely translates to the screen. While their characters are still very much underdogs, it’s easy to find yourself hoping they make it big in techland.”
