Amazon Studios signs overall deal with Reed Morano
Amazon Studios has announced its signing of an overall television deal with Emmy Award-winning producer and director Reed Morano (The Handmaid’s Tale). Morano made history by being the first woman to ever win the Emmy and DGA Award in the same year for a dramatic series – both for her work on The Handmaid’s Tale and was the first woman to win an Emmy in the Drama series category in 22 years. She will exclusively work with Amazon Studios to create original series which will be made available on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories.
“Reed is a creative powerhouse whose distinct point of view shines through her immersive, emotional storytelling and commanding cinematic style,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “We’re honoured to partner with her to exclusively create originals for the global Prime Video audience.” “I’m thrilled to be working with the pioneers at Amazon,” said Morano. “Jen Salke is known for elevating content and her unwavering support for the filmmaker’s vision. We share the same passionate enthusiasm for breaking the mould with provocative storytelling, and I couldn’t be more excited about what we’ve been planning to create together.”
