Amazon Adds New Comedy Catastrophe; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of February 2, 2015)

Catastrophe - Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan

Amazon Studios, known for television series such as multi-Golden Globe winning comedy Transparent, and comedy Mozart in the Jungle, has now added hit comedy Catastrophe to its line-up of Amazon Original Series available exclusively on Prime Instant Video, for Prime members to enjoy at no additional cost to their membership. Written by U.S. comedian and bestselling author, Rob Delaney, and award-winning actress, Sharon Horgan, Catastrophe is a half-hour comedy set in London about an Irish woman and American man struggling to start a relationship after their clumsy lust leads to pregnancy. Already a critical hit in the UK, Catastrophe is an Avalon Television production with co-producers Birdbath Productions and Merman. The series will be available exclusively for Prime members in the U.S. this spring and will come to Prime Instant Video in the UK later this year.
