Hulu has “Paul the Male Matchmaker,” Netflix has “Lilyhammer” and “House of Cards.” And what does Amazon have in the way of original video programming? Nothing much yet. But that may soon change.
New job listings on Amazon’s careers site show the company looking to recruit at least two creative executives for the “People’s Production Company,” its movie and series production arm. Specifically, it’s seeking executives to quarterback its children’s and comedy programming efforts. Each job’s top duty: To “help develop half-hour comedies for online and traditional distribution.”
And traditional distribution. Interesting.
