After her massive Emmys win on Sunday Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has signed a multi-million deal with Amazon.
Under this deal, which is apparently worth around $20 million a year, Waller-Bridge is contracted to create and produce new television content for Amazon Studios that will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
Waller-Bridge said: “I’m insanely excited to be continuing my relationship with Amazon,
“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!”
Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios said: “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,
“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.”
Not bad for a little show that began at the Edinburgh Fringe…
