Jordan Peele's Monkeypaw Productions Signs First-Look TV Deal With Amazon

Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions has signed a first look deal with Amazon.

This comes after Amazon landed two Peele series: the Nazi-hunting drama The Hunt and a Lorena Bobbitt docuseries.

“Jordan, Win Rosenfeld, and the Monkeypaw team represent the ideal creative collaboration as we continue to ramp up original, culturally relevant and riveting television. 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,” Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said.

Peele said, “I couldn’t be more excited about this new relationship with Amazon. They’ve been a fantastic partner to Monkeypaw over the last year because they’re committed to the same kind of fun and culturally-relevant television we are.”

Monkeypaw also has The Last O.G., which is wrapping up its first season on TNT, a The Twilight Zone remake at CBS All Access and Lovecraft Country at HBO.

Peele also has a first-look film deal with Universal and previously had a TV deal with Sonar Entertainment.

He’s the latest big name lured to a streaming service.
