Sharon Horgan’s show Catastrophe was a huge hit on Amazon, and now Amazon is recognizing that by signing her to a two-year overall deal.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, in addition to the personal deal, the company Horgan co-founded with Clelia Mountford, Merman, has also signed a deal with Amazon; they get first-look at any creative concepts with Horgan attached and have the rights to remake any television shows produced by Merman, presumably in American English. They’re psyched!
“Sharon Horgan is one of the sharpest and most engaging actresses, writers, and directors working in television today. We are thrilled she is expanding her collaboration with us at Amazon to create new groundbreaking content,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Amazon Studios’ head of scripted series. “Her strong creative voice and storytelling sensibility have resonated with audiences globally and will make for outstanding shows for our Prime members.”
Prime members are gonna love her. Horgan is both the creator and executive producer of Divorce on HBO and a co-creator of a show that recently aired on BBC, Motherland. Perhaps we’ll see the latter on Amazon soon, rebranded as Mom Town.
