Do you think you have a great idea for a hit sitcom? If you do, Amazon wants you to upload it to studios.amazon.com. If they think you’ve got a hit idea, they may slate it for development, if they do, you’ll get $10,000. If your new hit sitcom idea really turns out to be a hit, there’s pretty big money in your future. All you need to go is go to studios.amazon.com and upload your big idea. The rest is, pretty much out of your hands. Why is Amazon getting into the sitcom production business? The short answer Amazon Instant Video needs great content, and Amazon thinks that one great place to look for it is in your head. So, if you’re feeling creative and you think you’ve got what it takes, start writing, because – as you know, the only thing you need to make a great sitcom is great characters and a great idea. Thank that sounds easy?
