Amazon Studios has signed a first-look deal with Nicole Kidman and her production company, Blossom Films.
Blossom Films, created by Nicole Kidman and Per Saari, executive-produced the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning limited series, Big Little Lies, for HBO. In 2010, they produced the feature film Rabbit Hole, which earned Nicole Kidman both Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations, as well as The Family Fang. Blossom Films is now filming the second season of Big Little Lies, directed by Andrea Arnold.
Among Blossom’s development titles is an adaptation of off-Broadway vampire hit, Cuddles. With their Big Little Lies co-producers, Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea, Blossom Films is also adapting Liane Moriarty’s novel, Truly Madly Guilty, into a limited series. 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.
Amazon’s deal, which covers theatrical, television series, and digital content, will see the companies will work together to develop original series that will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
“Nicole is a force of nature as both an actress and a producer,” says 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 adds: “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.”
