9 Upcoming Original Amazon TV Shows You Should Be Excited About

8. Lost In Oz

High-quality shows from streaming services don't all have to be aimed at an adult audience, and Amazon is doing its best to prove that, with a number of children's series in the works. The likes of Just For Kids and The Stinky & Dirty Show look like being the sort of shows a younger audience will enjoy, but if you're going to be forced to watch along with them, then Lost in Oz appears to be the best of the bunch. Takes on The Wizard of Oz have never really been in short supply, and this animated version looks like being another worthwhile adaptation. Once again Dorothy and Toto are transported to the magical land, this time via her mother's journal, with a modern take on Emerald City. With a young witch by the name of West, and a giant Munchkin called Ojo, she embarks on her journey to get back home, while Oz faces a great magic crisis. The pilot received some strong reviews, with an 8.4 rating on IMDB, and presuming it does get a full series then it'll be one your kids will be binging on. You may just be right there with them.

NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far. A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
