New year, new Original Series, Comedy Specials, and more! Here’s what’s coming to Amazon Prime Video in January:

New Amazon Originals in January

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

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.
