Amazon Studios has closed a new first-look deal with actor, director, and writer John Krasinski (A Quiet Place) and his Sunday Night production banner.
As part of the three-year deal, Krasinski, alongside his partner Allyson Seeger (A Quiet Place), and their production and development executive Alexa Ginsburg (A Quiet Place), will work with Amazon Studios to develop television series to premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
“With his incredible authenticity and versatility, John Krasinski has brought to life some of entertainment’s most recognizable roles, including our own hero Jack Ryan,” says Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “John’s talents extend behind the screen as a prolific writer, director and producer with a keen eye for creating original characters and stories with global appeal. We welcome John, Allyson, Alexa and the rest of the Sunday Night team to the family and can’t wait to see what they bring to our Amazon Prime Video customers all over
“Everyone at Sunday Night is very excited to continue our partnership with Amazon Studios,” say Krasinski and Seeger. “Jen has been a friend and collaborator since back in my ‘Office’ days and her vision and expectation for what she wants Amazon Studios to become is exactly where we want to be.”
In addition to starring in and executive producing Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, produced by Amazon Studios, Paramount Television and Skydance Television, which will return for its second season soon on Amazon Prime Video, Krasinski is returning to write and direct A Quiet Place: Part II, which will hit cinemas in March 2020.
