Phoebe Waller-Bridge signs major Amazon deal
Emmy winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge has signed a major contract to make TV shows for Amazon. The writer and actress said she is “insanely delighted” with the exclusive deal.
Waller-Bridge, 34 will create and produce new programmes for Amazon Prime. And according to Variety, it’s believed to be worth $20m (£16m) a year.
The Fleabag star 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!”
Its a busy time for Waller-Bridge, who’s in high demand. She’s been ushered into the 007 writing team in an attempt to make the Bond girls feel “real.”
Last Sunday she won the Emmys for best lead actress in a comedy series and best writing for a comedy series, both for Fleabag, which was also named best comedy series.
