Amazon and IMDb are launching a new TV iteration of "X-Ray for Movies." The original feature was released six months ago, and allows users to access corresponding IMDb info with one tap while watching films on their Kindle Fires. The new feature does the same thing, but for television series.

"X-Ray for TV" is available starting today, and encompasses many popular shows on Amazon Prime Instant, including "Justified," "Downton Abbey," "American Horror Story," "The Walking Dead" and "Game of Thrones."

IMDb founder and CEO Col Needham states: “Can’t remember where you’ve seen the actor playing Lord Grantham in Downton Abbey? No problem. Simply tap on the screen and you’ll see a full filmography, where you’ll realize that Hugh Bonneville was also in 'Notting Hill.'"

IMDb has been an Amazon company for 14 years.
