If “Transparent” wasn’t enough, here’s another reason to buckle down and get an Amazon Prime membership. Over the weekend at Comic Con, Amazon released a new trailer for "The Man In The High Castle," a high concept alternative history drama produced by Ridley Scott ("The Good Wife") that bolsters Amazon's original TV lineup.
Based on Philip K. Dick's 1962 book of the same name, “The Man in The High Castle” is about living in an America where the Allies lost World War II and the country was divided between the Axis, with Nazis Germany claiming the East Coast and Japan taking the West Coast. It stars Alexa Davalos (“Mob City”), Rupert Evans (“The Village”), Luke Kleintank (“Pretty Little Liars”) and more.
If you do have an Amazon Prime membership, you can watch the “Pilot,” which was released in January, now. According to The Hollywood Reporter , Amazon Studios VP Roy Price said this was Amazon’s most watched pilot ever. (Typically, Amazon releases the pilots for the shows it’s considering ordering to series and makes decisions based partially on how Prime members respond to the pilots).
