Amazon’s Ring, MGM to launch show from viral doorbell videos

NEW YORK (AP) – Amazon-owned companies Ring and Hollywood studio MGM are partnering to create a TV show in the mold of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”

MGM says the half-hour “Ring Nation” program will showcase viral footage from Ring’s doorbell and smart-home cameras.

The series is the latest example of Amazon’s fusion of its various business arms.

It also presents a branding and marketing opportunity for Amazon, which bought Ring in 2018.

Since then, the company has dealt with rounds of privacy concerns around Ring and its relationship with police departments across the country.

The show will be hosted by comedian Wanda Sykes and premier in syndication on September 26.
