Amazon Studios has closed an exclusive two-year overall deal with Emmy-nominated writer and creator Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe). In addition to her personal deal, Horgan and co-founder Clelia Mountford’s entertainment company, Merman, also signed a first-look deal with Amazon Studios. Amazon Studios will get first-look rights to Merman concepts to which Horgan is attached and remake rights to Merman-produced television series.

We are thrilled she is expanding her collaboration with us at Amazon to create new ground-breaking content,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Head of Scripted Series, Amazon Studios. “Her strong creative voice and storytelling sensibility have resonated with audiences globally and will make for outstanding shows for our Prime members.”
