It’s official… Mark Consuelos will be starring in a new sitcom…
Amazon Studios has announced that the 42-year-old Mexican American actor’s pilot Alpha House has received a full season order.
After screening 14 original pilots to viewers, the online giant eventually gave the green light to Consuelos’ sitcom, which hails from Academy Award nominee Garry Trudeau.
It stars Consuelos, John Goodman, Clark Johnson and Matt Malloy as four “misfit senators” who share a rented house in Washington.
“We are thrilled at the enthusiastic customer response to our first original pilots,” says Roy Price, director of Amazon Studios. “We built Amazon Studios so that customers could help decide which stories would make the very best movies and TV shows. It’s exciting to see the process in motion, doing exactly what we set out to do. The success of this first set of pilots has given us the push to try this approach with even more shows — this is just the beginning.”
Alpha House will be available on Amazon‘s Prime Instant Video either later this year or in early 2014.
