The Expanse, a show far too good for most viewers, and the fucking channel Syfy, was killed. Now, this glorious show is (probably) being given a new chance on Amazon. Here’s hoping it’s treated better its second time around.
Amazon is adapting William Gibson’s novel ‘The Peripheral’ into a TV series so I should probably read it
Of course, of course Amazon is developing the only Willam Gibson novel I haven’t read into a TV series. But, maybe that’s a good thing for me. Maybe I should pass on reading this one, just this one, and take the adaptation as its own entity.
That ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV series for Amazon is going to be a prequel. ‘Cause why not the teats must be milked
Hey! How do the powers that be at Amazon compensate for pretty much all of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit having been beaten into paste, snorted, puked up, and snorted again? ‘Cause, you know, they’ve got a TV series coming? Prequel, baby! Ah yes, that insipid fucking narrative technique.
Snow Crash is one of my favorite books of all time, and it’s also a good friend of Development Hell.

The company is also developing TV shows based off of the comic Lazarus (love it), and the Ringworld series (I should be reading it).

I had no idea that there was a Hanna TV series adaptation in the works. From the movie’s original writer, no less! But there was, there is, and it’s gone straight to series.
Two of pop culture’s most beloved eccentrics are joining forces for a half-hour comedy show on Amazon. Fucking weird, man. Fucking unexpected, man. But I ain’t complaining.
The cool news: Amazon has signed a deal to stream ten Thursday night NFL games for its Prime users. The bad news: these games are always objectively the worst games of the week.
The creator of Mad Men is returning to television, so long as we continue to use television as an antiquated signifier. Matthew Weiner has signed a deal with Amazon to bring an anthology series to the company’s streaming service.
