Amazon Studios has inked a first-look deal with Grammy-winning singer Ciara and her Super Bowl champion husband Russell Wilson.
Under the deal, the couple will develop and produce scripted series and films via their Why Not You Productions for the studio. Projects from the deal will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
“We’re so excited and honored to work with Amazon Studios,” the Wilsons said in a statement. “They’ve quickly become one of the most exciting studios in entertainment and have shown a strong belief in our vision to bring inspiring stories to the world. We can’t wait to begin our work together.”
Amazon has previously signed first-look deals with Lizzo, Margot Robbie, Donald Glover, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and several others.
“Russell and Ciara are a true powerhouse producing duo — both with extraordinary success in their respective careers on the field and the stage, their business ventures, and shared dedication to philanthropy,” said Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke.
She added, “We share a passion for developing diverse and emotionally connecting stories that can inspire the world and spread positivity and hope. Our world certainly needs it.”
