Donald Glover Reportedly Signs Eight-Figure Deal With Amazon Studios


Reports say that the 37-year-old multi-hyphenate has secured an eight-figure, multi-year deal with the streaming giant. The deal is said to include a Prime Video channel that will highlight Glover’s work as well as other curated content. Though he and Amazon Studios have yet to confirm details, insiders say Glover will executive produce a number of projects under the deal, including a potential series called Hive.

Sources say the Janine Nabers (Watchmen) show will center on a “Beyoncé-like” figure, and that former first daughter Malia Obama has joined the series’ writers room. Stephen Glover, who created Atlanta alongside his brother, has also inked an overall deal with Amazon Studios. According to the outlet, the new agreement will not affect the award-winning FX series, which has been renewed for two more seasons. Production for Atlanta is expected to resume in the upcoming months, with season 3 potentially premiering later this year.
