Amazon hits the new year with momentum, bagging a pair of Golden Globes for Mozart in the Jungle, and looking to score another hit or two with its new slate.

The streaming service’s mission statement is to make big, bold series, said Roy Price, Amazon Studios chief.

“Our goal is to always create shows that stand out,” Price said. “Shows that become someone’s favorite show.”

The network is seeking out “visionary creators with a voice that will stand out over time,” he added.
