Life In Pieces was one of last years crop of pilots which has taken a while to find a UK home, but has now landed at Amazon Prime Video, and season 1 is available to stream as of today!
Created by Justin Adler, Life In Pieces is a sitcom which follows the eccentric Short family, with each show split into four short stories from different family members, each showing their version of events. The all-star cast includes Colin Hanks (Dexter, Fargo, and son of Tom), James Brolin (Catch Me If You Can, Castle, and father of Josh), Dianne Wiest (Law & Order, Bullets Over Broadway, The Lost Boys), Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), Thomas Sadoski (The Newsroom), Zoe Lister-Jones (New Girl), Dan Bakkedahl (Veep, The Mindy Project), and Angelique Cabral (Enlisted).
Amazon has really been stepping up it’s game in the past 12 months, not only in original content, but also with acquiring US imports. Season 2 of the fantastic Mr. Robot recently started to air on the streaming service, who also have acquired the rights to AMC’s Preacher, Starz’s Outlander, and Fox’s procedural comedy-drama Lucifer.
Life In Pieces is available to stream now on Amazon Prime Video, and has been renewed for a 2nd season, which is due in October.
