Amazon agrees Brosnahan first-look deal

Amazon Studios has struck a first-look deal with Rachel Brosnahan, the star of the streamer’s drama series The Marvelous Mrs Maisel (pictured).

Amazon will work with Brosnahan and her label Scrap Paper Pictures to create shows that will become available on Amazon Prime’s service around the world.

Brosnahan is set to appear in the third season of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel later this year and is also due to star and produce forthcoming feature I’m Your Woman, which is also being produced for Amazon.

Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said: “We are thrilled to expand our relationship with her as an actress and a producer, and I can’t wait to see what new characters and stories she creates for our Amazon Prime Video customers.”

Brosnahan added that she had felt “immensely supported professionally, personally and artistically in my time working with Amazon so far” and wanted “to amplify stories and storytellers that have been left out of the mainstream narrative for far too long.”
