Amazon inks first look TV deal with Nicole Kidman

Amazon Studios has signed a first look deal with Oscar winner, Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies) and her prodco, Blossom Films, for film, television series, and digital content.

The companies will work together to develop original series that will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime globally, as well as movies that will have a cinema release.

Blossom Films, created by Kidman and Per Saari, executive-produced the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning limited series, Big Little Lies, for HBO.

Among Blossom’s development titles is an adaptation of off-Broadway vampire hit, Cuddles. With their Big Little Lies co-producers, Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea, the prodco is also adapting Liane Moriarty’s novel, Truly Madly Guilty, into a limited series.

Its next project is David E. Kelley’s limited series, The Undoing, for HBO, which will go into production in 2019 and star Kidman.

“Nicole is a force of nature as both an actress and a producer,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “She understands the focus of bringing addictive, entertaining and compelling television to our Prime Video customers as well as movies that will connect with film audiences. Stay tuned for many exciting projects to come in the very near future!”

Kidman added: “I’m excited to start working with Jen Salke and the Amazon team. Our goal at Blossom Films is to create important and entertaining content across multiple platforms, and I can’t think of better collaborators with which to accomplish this.”
