‘Catastrophe’ available exclusively for Amazon Prime Members in the US

MUMBAI: Online retail major Amazon has announced all six episodes of season one of the Amazon Original Series ‘Catastrophe’ are now available exclusively for Amazon Prime members in the US.

Written by comedian and best-selling author Rob Delaney and actress Sharon Horgan, ‘Catastrophe’ is a half-hour comedy set in London about an Irish woman and American man struggling to start a relationship after their clumsy lust leads to pregnancy.

The series is now available exclusively for Prime members in the US and will come to Amazon Prime in the UK later this year.

In ‘Catastrophe’, two different worlds collide as Rob (Delaney) decides to move to London to become the father he never had, while Sharon (Horgan) questions whether this will be her last chance at motherhood. Together, Rob and Sharon must steer through increasingly thorny situations and navigate the choppy waters of their ever-more-complicated lives, while also learning to deal with Sharon’s intense Irish family, her rather unpleasant friend Fran (Ashley Jensen, Ugly Betty), and Rob’s eccentric Bostonian mother Mia (Carrie Fisher, Star Wars).

Amazon Prime members can now watch the entire first season of Catastrophe using the Amazon Instant Video app for TVs, connected devices and mobile devices, or online at Customers who are not already Prime members can sign up for a free trial at

Amazon Studios VP Roy Price said, “Customers can now partake in this clever comedic journey with Rob and Sharon. The incredible combination of their on-screen chemistry and honest writing makes this a very personal and authentic story.”

Avalon Television joint MD Jon Thoday said, “It is great to see such a creative and innovative show get such a brilliant reception”.
