Amazon Greenlights Another Kids’ Pilot


Amazon Studios has greenlit a pilot for the original children’s series “Maker Shack Agency,” produced by Electus Studios (“The Hero,” “Killer Women” and “Get Out Alive”).

“Maker Shack Agency” follows the exploits of 13-year-old inventor Angus Wolfe and his two best friends who use science and personal ingenuity to solve their client’s problems by making a new invention every episode.

“We are incredibly excited for our first initiative with Amazon, and we look forward to inspiring the next generation of makers,” says Drew Buckley, chief operating officer and head of digital, Electus. “With ‘Maker Shack Agency,’ we hope to inspire kids to think about new and different ways to solve life’s problems and to never be afraid of failure.”

“Maker Shack Agency” joins five other kids pilots announced by Amazon Studios last month, which will be available on Amazon Instant Video in early 2014 for customers to watch and provide feedback.
