Multi-talented British actress, writer, and producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge signed a lucrative deal with Amazon in September 2019, reportedly worth $20 million per year for three years, totaling $60 million. Waller-Bridge’s groundbreaking work on the TV series “Fleabag” and “Killing Eve” catapulted her to international fame, catching the attention of major streaming platforms. Her unique storytelling, wit, and ability to create complex characters resonated with audiences and critics alike, making her one of the most sought-after talents in the industry.
The deal with Amazon Studios required Waller-Bridge to develop new television projects exclusively for the platform, with the expectation that her unique creative vision would bring fresh content to Amazon Prime Video. However, in a surprising turn of events, the three-year contract came to an end without the production of any new series. Despite this, Waller-Bridge still received the full $60 million, highlighting her immense value and potential in the entertainment industry.
During the period of her Amazon deal, Phoebe Waller-Bridge was far from idle. She continued to work on various projects outside the confines of television, such as co-writing the screenplay for the James Bond film “No Time to Die” (2021). Additionally, she was cast in the upcoming Indiana Jones film and is currently working on a new television series with her “Fleabag” collaborator, Vicky Jones, titled “Run.”
Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s impact on the world of television and film is undeniable, and her ability to command a $60 million deal without producing new content for Amazon further emphasizes her significance in the industry. As she continues to create and collaborate, Waller-Bridge’s future projects are eagerly awaited by fans and critics alike, who anticipate more groundbreaking work from this exceptional talent.
