Amazon Studios has signed a first-look television deal with Lizzo to create streaming projects that will air exclusively on Prime Video. It sounds like the “Truth Hurts” singer already has some content ideas up her sleeve.
“I’m so excited to partner with the amazing team at Amazon,” said Lizzo. “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.”
Lizzo won three grammy awards this year, including one for best pop solo performance for “Truth Hurts,” her single that has been certified as five-times platinum. The single also became the longest-running #1 by a solo female rap artist ever.
“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 Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “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.”
