Amazon Studios said Monday it has signed a first-look film content deal with the L.A. production firm led by award-winning actress Viola Davis and her husband, actor and producer Julius Tennon.
Details of the agreement were not disclosed.
Amazon has been moving aggressively to expand high-quality produced content for its streaming video platform.
“Amazon Studios is passionate about building a home for both new and established filmmakers of all backgrounds, who share the same vision in telling incredible and engaging human stories,” Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement.
Davis and Tennon’s company, JuVee Productions, produces television, independent film, theater and digital content.
“We share the same vision of creating a vast and rich array of narratives that are inclusive and reflective of our world,” the couple said in a statement.
Davis stars in the Amazon comedy “Troupe Zero,” which will be released next year.
