On the heels of the second-season renewal for The Man In The High Castle, Amazonhas announced that the well reviewed alt-history drama, which debuted on November 20, has become the most-streamed original show ever for the on-demand platform globally, recording its biggest launch month. The Man In The High Castle, developed by Frank Spotnitz based the book by Phillip K. Dick, broke the previous record set by Amazon’s first original drama series, Bosch, which also is returning for a second season in 2016. Like all streaming services, Amazon would not provide viewership data to illustrate The Man In The High Castle‘s ratings achievement. Spotnitz executive produces The Man In The High Castle with Scott Free Productions’ Ridley Scott and David Zucker, along with Isa Dick Hackett.
“We’re very proud of this outstanding series created by Frank Spotnitz, Scott Free and Isa Dick Hackett, which Amazon customers around the world have enthusiastically embraced,” said Amazon Studios VP Roy Price. “We hoped that once again bringing together the work of Phillip K. Dick and the vision of Ridley Scott – who brought us the classic film Blade Runner – would help deliver on our promise of creating some of the best television in the world for Prime customers, and we believe that it has.”
The Man In The High Castle stars Alexa Davalos, Luke Kleintank, Rufus Sewell, Rupert Evans, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Joel de la Fuente and DJ Qualls. The show is available in U.S., UK, Germany, and Austria on Amazon Prime.
