Rachel Brosnahan has inked a first-look deal with Amazon Studios.
None other than The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel herself, Brosnahan has become a breakout star because of the Amazon series, winning an Emmy, two Golden Globes and a SAG Award for her work – she has previously received an Emmy nomination for her role in Netflix’s House of Cards.
Following two seasons of Mrs. Maisel, Brosnahan has since signed on to star in a feature film, I’m Your Woman, for Amazon Studios. She is also producing the movie. Now, Deadline reports that a recent contract renegotiation for Season 3 of Mrs. Maisel helped pave the way for Brosnahan’s new agreement. The pact will see her Scrap Paper Pictures banner work with Amazon Studios to develop TV series for Amazon Prime Video.
“A breakout star, Rachel has infused the role of Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel with charm, wit, and a little bit of chutzpah that brings the world of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel to life,” Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to expand our relationship with her as an actress and a producer, and I can’t wait to see what new characters and stories she creates for our Amazon Prime Video customers.”
“I have felt immensely supported professionally, personally and artistically in my time working with Amazon so far and am thrilled to be embarking on this new journey with them,” added Brosnahan. “I look forward to exploring new pathways into established genres and working alongside the Amazon team to amplify stories and storytellers that have been left out of the mainstream narrative for far too long.”
