Tyler Perry and Amazon Studios announced that they have secured a four-picture film deal in which the media mogul will write, direct, and produce original feature projects for Amazon Studios exclusively for Prime Video.
“I’m excited and grateful to start working with Amazon Studios to bring movies to Prime Video,” Perry said in a press release, obtained by BET.com, on Monday (Nov. 28). “Jennifer Salke and the entire team have welcomed me with open arms, and I’m looking forward to continuing telling unique stories and bringing my next projects to the global audiences that they reach.”
“Tyler Perry is undeniably one of the most prolific creators of our time,” remarked Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “He is a true multihyphenate who has defined his own incredible brand of storytelling and inspired people all over the world with his series and films. We are excited to collaborate with Tyler and his teams to bring even more of his fantastic signature films to our global audiences.”
Perry wrote, directed, and produced his most recent movie, A Jazzman's Blues, which had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September and came out on Netflix later that month. Perry currently is at the helm of several series on BET and BET+ that include: The Oval, Assisted Living, Bruh, Sistas, Zatima and Ruthless.
