Yesterday Amazon announced plans to expand their television and movie studios in Culver City, California. With this expansion Amazon Studios, IMDb, Amazon Video, and World Wide Advertising will occupy more than 280,000 square feet of space.
This new studio was originally created by silent movie pioneer, Thomas H. Ince. Culver Studios has been home to some of the most famous films and television shows in Hollywood history including Gone with the Wind and Citizen Kane.
“We are very excited about being a part of 100 years of movie and TV history at The Culver Studios,” said Albert Cheng, head of Amazon Studios. “Most importantly, this new LA-based office will give us the much needed space for our team to work and grow so we can keep bringing Prime Members the very best in series and movies.”
Amazon will start moving into the new space by the end of 2017 and will be hiring for a variety of roles including creative, technical, marketing, and legal. All with the goal of expanding their original programming for Prime subscribers.
Last week Amazon announced that they plan to invest more into their original content, but they stopped just short of giving details on how they plan to do that.
