Amazon goes all-in on Jordan Peele’s TV shows

“Jordan, Win Rosenfeld and the Monkeypaw team represent the ideal creative collaboration as we continue to ramp up original, culturally relevant and riveting television,” Amazon Studios Head Jennifer Salke said in a statement. “Our Lorena Bobbitt documentary and series order for The Hunt represent just the start of what will be a prolific and exciting relationship with Monkeypaw.”

Peele, who signed a first-look deal with Universal Pictures last year for films, has a number of projects lined up including a Twilight Zone reboot and a stop-motion animated film. “I couldn’t be more excited about this new relationship with Amazon,” Peele said about the new deal. “They’ve been a fantastic partner to Monkeypaw over the last year because they’re committed to the same kind of fun and culturally-relevant television we are.”
