Bermudian film-maker wins TV spot on Amazon
A television show created by a Bermudian film-maker has won a spot on an international streaming service.
The pilot episode of Eddie's, a comedy drama created and written by Alex Scrymgeour, has made its debut on Amazon Prime Video.
Mr Scrymgeour said the series had not been picked up for a full season yet, but that he was optimistic that could become a reality if the pilot generated enough interest.
Mr Scrymgeour said: “Streaming platforms and broadcasters will be watching closely to see what the sales and viewing numbers are for the content people consume.
“Based on that, if the numbers are good, Eddie's may yet serve up another round of good times and good vibes at everyone's favourite beach bar where every hour is happy hour and all are welcome.”
Eddie's stars Eddie McGee, a veteran of shows including NCIS: Los Angeles and Chicago Med, as the owner of a beach bar in Venice, California.
Mr Scrymgeour, a former reporter with the Mid-Ocean News, said he made sure the show had a Bermudian flavour, with a Bermuda flag displayed in the bar and a regular — George Wendt, who played Norm Peterson in the long-running hit show Cheers, also set in a bar — drinking Dark ‘n' Stormys.
