“The CBS/Amazon relationship for original summer programming has been very successful, and we’re excited to build on it with Salvation,” said Scott Koondel, chief corporate licensing officer, CBS Corp. “It continues to be a great business model for year-round programming on the network, as well as exclusive content for Amazon Video subscribers.”
