Amazon Studios Orders Two New Original Kids Series "Bug Diaries" and Sid & Marty Krofft's "Sigmund and the Sea Monsters," Exclusively for Prime Video

In addition to streaming or downloading thousands of titles on Prime Video, Amazon Prime members enjoy fast, free shipping, unlimited access to more than two million songs with Prime Music, unlimited secure photo storage with Prime Photos, and more - customers can enjoy a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime today

SEATTLE - November 29, 2016 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon Studios today announced it has ordered two new Amazon Original Kids Series including animated series Bug Diaries, based on a best-selling children's book series, and live-action series Sid & Marty Krofft's Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, based on the classic Saturday morning television series from the 1970s.

"We are so excited to bring this beloved series, Bug Diaries, to our customers that highlights important life lessons for our young viewers," said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. "We also look forward to reviving the classic Sigmund and the Sea Monsters that has a strong message of friendship."

The Bug Diaries is an animated comedy series for preschoolers based on the witty children's books by best-selling author Doreen Cronin and best-selling Illustrator Harry Bliss. The show follows a comic trio of slimy, crawly, and buzzy bug friends whose tiny world offers up huge adventures. Pairing kid-personalities with incredible bug abilities, the series will give us a mile-high look at the world through Fly's compound eyes, let us squirm in Worm's "footsteps", and literally hang around with Spider as they record their adventures, each in their own way, in their bug diaries.

Sid & Marty Krofft present Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, a live action show for children ages 6 to 11, based on their classic Saturday morning series from the 1970s. The show is centered on two brothers, Johnny and Scotty, who along with their cousin Robyn befriend Sigmund, a friendly young sea-monster who escapes from his old life and his comically dysfunctional brothers Slurp and Blurp. Now, using a Clubhouse as their hiding place, the gang must keep Sigmund safe from an ambitious sea-monster hunter Captain Barnabas. The show is executive produced by Sid & Marty Krofft (H.R. Pufnstuf, Land of the Lost) with the pilot directed by Jonathan Judge (The Thundermans, School of Rock) and starring David Arquette (Scream, Jake and the Neverland Pirates) as Captain Barnabas. Garrett Frawley and Brian Turner (Santa Baby) wrote the new teleplay based on the classic series.

These series will be part of Prime Video's growing line-up of award-winning and critically-acclaimed Originals for kids and families. Amazon Original Kids Series are available for Prime members to stream and enjoy using the Amazon Video app for TVs, connected devices including Amazon Fire TV, and mobile devices, or online at www.amazon.com/originals, at no additional cost to their membership - Prime members can also download titles to mobile devices for offline viewing.
