The streaming TV revolution continues!
East Hampton’s Martha Stewart will reportedly star in a new series for Amazon Prime. The one-hour show, inspired by her American Made online store, will follow craftspeople and small businesses around the country. Stewart will visit with these entrepreneurs, offer guidance and help them succeed.
American Made spotlights artisans that make goods in the United States. From MarthaStewart.com:
American Made spotlights the maker, supports the local, and celebrates the handmade. The program is made up of people and communities that have turned their passion for quality craftsmanship and well-designed goods into a way of life.
For more than 20 years, Martha Stewart has celebrated this spirit of innovation in the pages of her magazines and on her television shows. Now, through American Made, Martha Stewart and the editors of Martha Stewart Living are spotlighting the next generation of great American makers: entrepreneurs, artisans, and small-business owners who are creating beautiful, inspiring, useful products; pioneering new industries; improving local communities; and changing the way we eat, shop, work, and live.
We believe we are in the midst of a shift in our culture where creative entrepreneurs are defining a new American economy. From Detroit to Des Moines, Spokane to St. Louis, people are choosing Main Street over mini-malls—supporting the local and the handmade. Our country’s makers are sparking this change by taking a leap, banking on their creativity and craftsmanship, and living their version of the American dream.
This is where you will meet, learn from, and be inspired by fellow makers from around the country. Welcome.
The series is set to begin filming later this summer. Watch a video of one of the honorees below.
