Can you think of a better way to kick off the new year on Amazon Prime Video than with Viola Davis and Allison Janney? Us, either — and that's exactly what we're going to get on Jan. 17 when the pair team up for the Amazon original Troop Zero. And for the kids, we've got a spinoff of the hit Just Add Magic.
But first, we're going to nyuck it up with comedian Ilana Glazer in her first standup special for Amazon.
And rounding out the month we're going to take a deep, dark look into serial killer Ted Bundy.
But there's so much more. Read on for more on the Amazon Originals headed our way in January 2020, as well as the full schedule.
- Starring Viola Davis and Allison Janney, Troop Zero (2019) tells the story of a misfit girl dreaming of life in outer space but living in rural 1977 Georgia. When a national competition offers her a chance at her dream, to be recorded on NASA's Golden Record, she recruits a makeshift troop of Birdie Scouts, forging friendships that last a lifetime and beyond. Streaming on January 17, 2020.
- Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer is a five-part docuseries that reframes infamous serial killer Ted Bundy's crimes from a female perspective, uncovering the disturbing and profound way in which his pathological hatred of women collided with the culture wars and feminist movement of the 1970s, culminating in what is perhaps the most infamous true crime saga of our time. The series is anchored by the story of Bundy's longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kendall and her daughter Molly, who, after nearly 40 years of silence, are sharing their experiences with new unsettling details about Bundy, the inconceivable pull he had on women, and an abundant archive of never-before-seen family photos. They are joined by a chorus of female voices, including survivors and near-miss victims of Bundy's attacks – some of whom are stepping forward for the first time – with chilling accounts that will forever change the Bundy narrative and provoke a discussion around gender politics that hauntingly resonates today. Streaming on January 31, 2020.
- In her very first stand-up special exclusively on Prime Video, Ilana Glazer: The Planet is Burning will feature Ilana's thoughts on homophobes and Nazis, how crappy women's razors are, and what a joke the patriarchy is. Streaming January 3, 2020.
- Just Add Magic: Mystery City: In this spinoff of the successful Amazon Original kids series Just Add Magic, we follow the magic cookbook to Bay City as it moves to three new protectors: step-siblings Zoe and Leo, and their upstairs neighbor Ish. Each of the three brings a unique skill to the table, as the cookbook unlocks a centuries-old mystery that takes them on an historical adventure through the city streets in a race to find a secret recipe. Streaming on January 17, 2020.
