There has been a lot of talk about Amazon at the Winter 2020 Television Critics Association tour, particularly during the Fox and PBS days, little of it positive. But that changed during Amazon’s segment of the tour on Tuesday. It began with an executive session in which Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios; Albert Chang, COO and co-head of television, and Vernon Sanders, co-head of television talked about a dizzying amount of new programming coming to Prime Video, much of it designed with global appeal in mind, and all of it uncommonly ambitious. The global theme carried over into a later panel for Making the Cut, Amazon’s upcoming fashion competition series that stars and is executive produced by Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn. Call it Project Runway on steroids.
