Grammy Award-winning musician Lizzo is taking her talent to Amazon, working with its streaming network to develop and produce an Amazon Prime original series.
Co-Heads of Television at Amazon Studios Albert Cheng and Vernon Sanders made the announcement during the organization’s virtual press tour, with Cheng referring to the pop star as a “force of positivity.”
The “Good As Hell” singer made an appearance during the tour to express her excitement and gratitude for her new role stating, “I’m so excited to partner with the amazing team at Amazon. Thank you to Jen Salke and the rest of the team for making this dream come true. I can’t wait to get started and share my vision with the world.”
While Lizzo has dabbled in the film industry with her role in the hit movie Hustlers and voicing a character in UglyDolls, this partnership will mark her first foray into television. It has yet to be announced what Lizzo’s show will be about and when it will debut.
“Lizzo is one of the most exciting, creative, joyful artists in the industry, and it is such a pleasure to announce this new deal with her,” said Salke. “She has such a unique perspective and we’re so excited to hear her ideas for new content that our Prime Video customers are sure to love.”END
