Whether it makes money or not, Amazon continues to play in the content sandbox. That investment led to two Golden Globe awards for its original series, Transparent, just a couple days ago. Well success must breed success as Amazon has gotten the notable writer and director Woody Allen to agree to come back to the small screen after many years of movie making. Per Gigaom, " the company announced it’s signed Woody Allen to write and direct a half-hour comedy series. It’s the first TV show Allen has done and will be available exclusively through Prime Instant Video in 2016." And given the fan base, that could drive more Amazon Prime subscriptions as well.
