Amazon Studios Inks First-Look Deal with Nicole Kidman


Amazon Studios has signed a first-look deal with Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies) and her production company, Blossom Films.

The agreement covers theatrical, TV series and digital content. Blossom and Amazon Studios will work together to develop original shows that will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video globally in more than 200 countries and territories, as well as movies for theatrical release.

“Nicole is a force of nature as both an actress and a producer,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “She understands the focus of bringing addictive, entertaining and compelling television to our Prime Video customers as well as movies that will connect with film audiences. Stay tuned for many exciting projects to come in the very near future!”

Kidman said: “I’m excited to start working with Jen Salke and the Amazon team. Our goal at Blossom Films is to create important and entertaining content across multiple platforms, and I can’t think of better collaborators with which to accomplish this.”

Blossom Films, founded by Kidman and Per Saari, executive produced Big Little Lies for HBO. Big Little Lies is currently in production on season two. Blossom’s next project is David E. Kelley’s limited series The Undoing for HBO, which will go into production in 2019 and star Kidman.
