“Sea Oak,” ‘The Climb” and “Love You More” — Amazon’s three comedy pilots from this season — will not be moving forward to series, Variety has confirmed.

The move reflects the new programming strategy mandated by Jeff Bezos, away from niche offerings and toward tentpole projects like the new iteration of “Lord of the Rings.” Amazon is said to be searching for big hit series that can run for multiple seasons.

Another factor at play is the shift in leadership at Amazon Studios. The executives who greenlit the projects, which bowed on November 10, have all exited — from content head Roy Price to comedy and drama chief Joe Lewis. COO Albert Chang has been serving as interim head while the search continues for a replacement for Price. […]

And the black comedy “Sea Oak” starred Close as a Rust Belt woman who comes back from the dead after she’s killed in a home invasion. “Atlanta’s” Hiro Murai directed the pilot and exec produces with creator George Saunders, Jonathan Krauss and Evan Dunsky. […]

30 Rock has found a new streaming home.

The Tina Fey comedy and acclaimed family drama Parenthood are two of the shows headed to Hulu as part of a massive SVOD deal between NBCUniversal and the streaming company, it was announced Wednesday.

As part of the pact, Hulu also will also premiere the new Paul Reiser period comedy There’s Johnny, set against the backdrop of the Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, that was originally set to debut on NBC’s soon-to-be-defunct streaming app Seeso. Other shows included in the agreement are Syfy’s reality competition series Face Off and the UK series Made in Chelsea.

[…]

NBC famously tried to its own streaming platform, the comedy-heavy Seeso, in 2016. The niche brand offered originals like The UCB Show, Take My Wife and Bajillion Dollar Properties, as well as episodes of classic NBC comedies like Parks and Recreation and Saturday Night Live. However, it was confirmed on Aug. 9 that the streaming service would be shut down by the end of 2017.

News of Seeso’s impending demise came just weeks before the originally scheduled Aug. 24 launch of There’s Johnny, which hails from exec producer Paul Reiser and stars Tony Danza. Subsequently, the premiere was delayed as producers had been trying to find a new home for the period comedy.

Suburgatory alumna Jane Levy is set to co-star opposite André Holland in Hulu’s upcoming psychological-horror drama series Castle Rock from J.J. Abrams and Stephen King. Also boarding the show in a key role is an actress closely associated with King’s cinematic world, Carrie star Sissy Spacek.

Levy has signed a one-year deal for Castle Rock, and she also has been tapped to co-star opposite Glenn Close in the Amazon supernatural comedy pilot Sea Oak, written by George Saunders based on his short story.

Set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock, from from Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, is named after the fictional town in King’s native Maine that is featured prominently in a number of his novels, novellas and short stories. Per the producers, it combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.

Holland will play Henry, a death row attorney with a unique and complicated history in Castle Rock.

Oscar winner alum Spacek will play Ruth Deaver, the estranged adoptive mother of Henry (Holland). She’s a retired professor whose fading memories might hold a key to Castle Rock’s unsettling past. Levy plays Jackie, the death-obsessed self-appointed historian of Castle Rock.

The project reunites Levy with Warner Bros. TV, which cast her in her breakout role as the lead in the ABC comedy series Suburgatory. Levy is repped by Gersh and Sloane Offer.

Spacek is coming off a three-season run on the Netflix drama series Bloodline.

Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason developed Castle Rock for television and serve as executive producers along with J.J. Abrams, Ben Stephenson and Liz Glotzer.
