SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 24, 2014-- (NASDAQ: AMZN) — Amazon today announced all 10 episodes of the second season of Garry Trudeau’s critically-acclaimed political comedy series Alpha House are now available on Prime Instant Video in the US, UK and Germany. John Goodman (Argo), Mark Consuelos (All My Children), Clark Johnson (The Wire) and Matt Malloy (Six Feet Under) reprise their roles as Republican Senators living under one roof in Washington, D.C. dealing with the outrageous—and sometimes all-too-real—foibles of Beltway life. The series is produced by Trudeau, Elliot Webb (Mob City) and NBC News contributor Jonathan Alter.

Customers can binge watch both seasons of Alpha House now on Prime Instant Video, on their TVs using the Amazon Instant Video app on Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Xbox, Playstation, Wii, and smart TVs.
