Hot on the heels of her not one, not two, but six Emmy wins, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has signed a $20 million (Dhs73 million) with Amazon, according to Variety.
The Killing Eve and Fleabag creator has reportedly create and produce new television content for Amazon Studios that will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
“I’m insanely excited to be continuing my relationship with Amazon,” said Waller-Bridge. “Working with the team on ‘Fleabag’ was the creative partnership dreams are made of. It really feels like home. I can’t wait to get going!”
“We are thrilled to be continuing our partnership with Phoebe at Amazon Studios! As evident in her great success at the Emmy Awards this week, she is clever, brilliant, generous and a virtuoso on multiple fronts including writing, acting and producing,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios in a statement. “’Fleabag’ has been a gift to our Prime Video customers and we are excited for what comes next from this brilliant mind to dazzle and delight our global audience.”
The British actress and writer created the BBC America series Killing Eve, stars Jodie Comer, who just won Lead Actress in a Drama award at Sunday’s Emmy Awards, and Grey’s Anatomy’s Sandra Oh.
Waller-Bridge's second show, Fleabag, was originally adapted from her one-woman play that she presented at Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It ended after season two.
