Donald Glover has not yet invited us to return to Atlanta but it looks like you will soon be navigating the Amazon, that is, the main study. According to sources via The Hollywood Reporter, the artist-creator has signed a major blanket agreement with Amazon with the upcoming content to debut on the company’s Prime Video platform.
The “eight-figure, multi-year” deal will reportedly include “a kind of content channel that will highlight Glover’s work and other content selected from Amazon’s Prime Video hub,” according to THR. Also, this will be a family affair because his brother, Atlanta Writer and producer Stephen Glover also reportedly signed a blanket agreement with Amazon.
This means it will deviate from your deal with FX, although I must mention that it will not affect your series. Atlantaas it will continue to be broadcast on FX. It’s similar to Kenya Barris leaving ABC for Netflix, but she still has ongoing content with ABC as part of her previous deal. So take it easy, even though I don’t think I’m currently calm because we still don’t have a solid comeback date for season 3 and 4 of Atlanta.
This is an important deal, but it doesn’t stop there. Malia Obama is also involved! How?! Well THR has the tea:
The deal with Amazon, which has been in the works for weeks, will also see the Glover executive produce other projects for the retail giant and streamer. Sources point out that one of those projects is already beginning to materialize: a potential series called Hive, which is rumored to revolve around a Beyoncé-like figure and comes from writer Janine Nabers (Watchmen, Far). The project has already begun staffing a writers’ lounge, and sources say Malia Obama is among those recruited to work on the series.
Looking at Malia’s career path, this makes sense as she previously interned at The Weinstein Company in Hollywood during his sabbatical. Also, like the Glovers, the entertainment business is already in the family with Malia’s parents Barack and Michelle. actively working on content as part of its agreement with Netflix.
Along with this upcoming Amazon Prime Video content list, Donald recently announced that he would create, produce and star in a renaissance of Mrs. and Mrs. Smith with Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag). That was a total failure when it comes to audience anticipation and excitement because absolutely no one believes that he can pull off the chemistry on screen. Plus, you have the seemingly impossible feat of properly following Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s gripping act in the 2005 original.
Amazon declined to comment on the news or any additional details such as Hive and Obama’s reported participation, according to THR. The root He has reached out to representatives for Donald Glover and Malia Obama for comment on this news.
