Jordan Peele is having an amazing year. Amazon studios just announced their first-look television deal with the Oscar and Emmy winner and his Monkeypaw Productions.
The Get Out screenwriter Peele and his company most recently had a first-look TV deal with Sonar Entertainment, which yielded The Hunt, a vengeance-driven Nazi hunting drama, which got a straight-to-series order by Amazon last month. It is one of two projects Monkeypaw Productions has at Amazon, along with the upcoming Lorena Bobbitt documentary. (On the feature side, Peele has a deal at Universal Pictures.)
“Jordan, (Monkeypaw president) Win Rosenfeld, and the Monkeypaw team represent the ideal creative collaboration as we continue to ramp up original, culturally relevant and riveting television,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “Our Lorena Bobbitt documentary and series order for The Hunt represent just the start of what will be a prolific and exciting relationship with Monkeypaw.”
