To the Cast, Crew, and Fans of Leverage from Aldis Hodge Online

Filed under: Admin Announcement. Posted by Admin - AliKat.

In response to the cancellation of Leverage, I’m writing as a fan of the show. I’ve been a fan since the first episode five seasons ago. I started watching because it was on during hiatus for most shows and it had a former Angel actor on it: Christian Kane. As Joss Whedon is one of the only show creators that I followed from show to show, I tried to do the same with the actors/actresses from his shows. Plus, this has Tim Hutton on it so it can’t be too bad, right? I knew nothing of Beth Riesgraf, Aldis Hodge, Gina Bellman, Dean Devlin, Chris Downey, or John Rogers at the time. You see, for most shows, you remember the characters and sometimes the actors unless they’re someone like Joss Whedon who has a huge following of geeks like me because he creates epic series that have a bad habit of getting canceled too soon.

Amazon Greenlights 6 Series, Including Chris Carter’s ‘The After,’ and Renews ‘Alpha House’

Amazon Greenlights 6 Series, Including Chris

Amazon.com confirmed full-series pickups of four shows – including supernatural drama “The After” from Chris Carter (“X-Files”) — plus two kids’ original series and a second season of “Alpha House” starring John Goodman for its Prime Instant Video service.

As previously reported by Variety, the Internet retailer greenlit two hour-long dramas “The After” (pictured above) and cop show ”Bosch,” and two half-hour comedies, “Mozart in the Jungle” and “Transparent,” out of a pool of 10 shows in its second wave of pilots. Those are going into production and will launch on the subscription VOD service either later in 2014 or early 2015, Amazon Studios director Roy Price said.

In addition, Amazon ordered a pair of children’s skeins: live-action series ”Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street,” aimed at kids 6-11, and preschooler-targeted “Wishenpoof!” from “Blue’s Clues” co-creator Angela Santomero. This summer, Amazon will premiere its first three kids’ series: Santomero’s “Creative Galaxy,” stop-motion series “Tumble Leaf” and live-action “Annedroids.”

Of the 10 pilots launched in February, four are getting passed over: ”The Rebels,” a sports comedy about a widow who inherits a pro football team, and kids’ shows “Hardboiled Eggheads, “The Jo B. & G. Raff Show” and “Maker Shack Agency.” And while Amazon was pleased enough with the results for political comedy “Alpha House” that it’s bringing it back for a second season, the Silicon Valley-set “Betas” is not being renewed. Those two shows were Amazon Studios’ first full series, launched in November.

“Unfortunately you have to make tough decisions,” Price said, adding that “I’d love to figure out something else for ‘Betas.’”

Amazon Studios said viewing for the second pilot wave was up more than double its first group of pilots last year (but wouldn’t give out actual figures, except to note that 6,099 users gave Garry Trudeau’s “Alpha House” the top five-star rating, out of 10,873 who have rated the show overall, for an average of 4.1 out of 5). Like Netflix, Amazon does not reveal viewing data aside from relative rankings. For part of Q4, “Alpha House” was the most popular TV show on Prime Instant Video.

I decided Aldis Hodge Online needed a new look to go with Aldis’ new series being picked up. Besides, the last look had gotten old and tired. Let me know what you think!
