Amazon announced today that all 10 episodes of its original series “Hand of God” are now available to Prime subscribers in the U.S., the U.K., Germany and Austria.
Created by “Burn Notice” veteran Ben Watkins, the series focuses on Judge Pernell Harris (Ron Perlman), a hard-living, law-bending jurist cheating on his wife with a high-end call girl who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the man who raped his daughter-in-law.
After his daughter-in-law is raped, his son attempts suicide and winds up in a coma. The judge subsequently suffers a nervous breakdown and embarks on a vigilante quest to find the man who raped his daughter-in-law, guided by voices he hears from his ventilator-bound son.
The series also stars stars Dana Delany (“Body of Proof) as the judge’s wife and Alona Tal (“Burn Notice”) as his daughter-in-law , along with Garret Dillahunt (“Justified”), Andre Royo (“The Wire”) and Julian Morris (“Pretty Little Liars”).
The first episode of “Hand of God” premiered last year as part of a crop of original pilots that also included “Hysteria,” “Really” and “The Cosmopolitans.” The pilot was directed by Marc Forster (“World War Z,” “Quantum of Solace”), who is executive producing the series along with Watkins, Perlman, Brian Wilkins and Jeff King. Jillian Kugler is co-executive producer.
Amazon’s fall series premieres include “The Man in the High Castle” (Nov. 20) and the second season of “Transparent” (December).
Earlier this week, Amazon ordered a second season of “Sneaky Pete,” starring Giovanni Ribisi, and last week it greenlit “Trial,” starring Billy Bob Thornton, will be its first show to go straight to series and skip its pilot system, which allows users in the U.S. and the U.K. to rate each show and provide feedback to help Amazon Studios determine which to greenlight for full seasons.
Amazon originals scheduled to premiere in 2016 include a new automotive show toplined by former “Top Gear” hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May; a six-episode series from Woody Allen; and its first original movie, “Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq,” starring Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson.
