Donald Glover has reportedly signed a major new multiple-year TV deal with Amazon.
The actor, writer and musician will leave his current deal with the Disney-owned FX, to partner with Amazon.
Glover reportedly signed an eight-figure deal to helm a new “content channel of sorts” for Amazon that will “spotlight Glover’s work and other curated content on Amazon’s Prime Video hub”.
Glover will executively produce a number of projects for Amazon, with one such project – a potential series called Hive – set to “revolve around a Beyoncé-like figure” and stem from Watchmen producer and writer Janine Nabers.
The daughter of former US President Barack Obama, Malia Obama, has been hired to work as a writer on Hive.
News of Glover’s deal with Amazon follows on from last weekend’s announcement that he is pairing up with Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge to star in a new version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which will air on Amazon.
