Prime members will have unlimited access to episodes of new CBS summer series just four days after their initial broadcast at no additional charge to their membership

Amazon and CBS has announced today a new multi-year, multi-series deal with Amazon Prime Video.

The exclusive subscription streaming service will be home for the CBS summer series collections through 2018.

Businesswire.com reports that the first new CBS series included in this deal will be next summer’s highly anticipated comic-thriller BrainDead, which Prime members in the U.S. will be able to stream just four days after broadcast at no additional charge to their membership.

BrainDead is a comic thriller from Robert and Michelle King, acclaimed producers of The Good Wife. Set in the world of D.C. politics, the series follows a young fresh-faced Hill staffer (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) getting her first job in Washington, D.C. and discovering two things: the government has stopped working, and alien spawn have come to Earth and eaten the brains of a growing number of congressmen and Hill staffers.

“Prime members have loved having access to series like Under the Dome and Extant just four days after broadcast, and we’re excited to continue to offer in-season availability of more great CBS summer series over the next three years,” said Brad Beale, Amazon Vice President of Digital Video Content Acquisition. “We are also always working to ensure our Prime members have the best selection, and we know they will continue to enjoy unlimited access to a wide array of CBS titles to binge-watch anytime, anywhere.”

“We’re thrilled to build on our relationship with Amazon with new original summer series and more programming from CBS and SHOWTIME,” said Scott Koondel, Chief Corporate Licensing Officer, CBS Corporation. “With a truly original, genre-bending concept from outstanding creative auspices, BrainDead will be one of the most talked-about shows next summer by CBS viewers and Prime members.”
