Priyanka Chopra signs multimillion-dollar first-look television deal with Amazon
The deal to create content ‘irrespective of language and geography’ was inked in collaboration with Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke
Priyanka Chopra Jonas has signed a two-year multimillion-dollar first-look television deal with Amazon Studios. The global collaboration will promote diverse talent across languages.
“As both an actor and producer, I have always dreamt of an open canvas of creative talent coming together from all over the world to create great content irrespective of language and geography,” Priyanka announced on Instagram. “This has always been the DNA of my production house Purple Pebble Pictures, and is the foundation of this exciting new endeavor with Amazon.”
At present, Priyanka is developing two television projects with Amazon. The first is Sangeet, an unscripted series based on the Indian pre-wedding tradition. The show is co-produced by her husband Nick Jonas. The second is Citadel, a spy series by Anthony and Joe Russo where she will star with Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden.
Priyanka shared she has much more on her slate. “And as a storyteller, my quest is to constantly push myself to explore new ideas that not only entertain, but most importantly, open minds and perspectives. Looking back on my 20 year career, nearly 60 films later, I hope that I’m on my way to achieving that,” she wrote.
