Amazon has inked an overall deal with Undone co-creator Kate Purdy.
From Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg (BoJack Horseman), Undone is a groundbreaking and genre-bending series about a young woman’s complex journey to unlock her past and solve the mystery of her father’s death.
Alma Winograd-Diaz (Rosa Salazar, Alita: Battle Angel) takes her mundane life one day at a time until a near fatal accident induces visions of her late-father, Jacob. Through these persistent visions he urges her to tap into a mysterious ability that allows her to travel through space and time with the hopes of preventing his untimely death. This quest challenges Alma’s relationships and brings into question her mental wellbeing with those closest to her.
The result has been one of the most unique series of 2019, with Amazon Studios since renewing it for a second run.
Albert Cheng, co-head of television and COO at Amazon Studios, said in a statement: “Undone is beautifully done in every sense of the word, aesthetically and emotionally.”
At the same time, Deadline reports that Purdy has signed an exclusive deal with Amazon. She joins a line-up of female writer-creators with overall deals at Amazon Studios, including Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Sharon Horgan.
