AMAZON STUDIOS ANNOUNCES NEW FIRST LOOK DEAL WITH ACTRESS CONNIE BRITTON

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 27, 2019 - Amazon Studios announced today it has closed a new first look deal with actress and producer Connie Britton. Britton will work with Amazon Studios to develop television series to premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.

"I'm honored to be joining Jen and the team at Amazon in creating provocative, thoughtful programming, utilizing their celebrated and exceptional storytelling platform," said Britton. "I know this will be an exciting and purposeful collaboration."

"Connie Britton is a multi-talented actress who has captivated audiences with her portrayal of smart, complicated women," said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. "Britton's ability to create memorable characters and identify compelling stories makes her a perfect fit for Amazon Studios. We look forward to seeing what she creates for the global Amazon Prime Video audience."

Four-time Emmy-nominated Britton is an actress who continually receives accolades for her work in television and film. After stand-out roles on series such as Spin City, 24, and The West Wing, she starred in one of the best reviewed shows on television, NBC's Friday Night Lights created by Peter Berg, for which she received an Emmy nomination in 2010 and then again in 2011.

Britton most recently starred in and served as executive producer for the first season of Bravo Media's scripted anthology series Dirty John, based on the articles and breakout true crime podcast of the same name from Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard. She earned a Golden Globe and Critics' Choice nomination for her work.

Britton previously starred in ABC's Nashville, in which she played Rayna James, a legendary country music superstar, earning Britton her first Golden Globe nomination and fourth Emmy nomination. Britton also starred as the female lead in the first season of American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated series for FX, for which she also received another Emmy nomination.

Britton teamed up with Murphy again in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson for FX, in which she played Faye Resnick, and most recently for Murphy's new FOX procedural first-responder drama, 9-1-1, alongside Angela Bassett and Peter Krause.

In film, Britton most recently completed production on Good Joe Bell, in which she stars alongside Mark Wahlberg. Her recent credits include: The Mustang, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, Professor Marston & The Wonder Woman, Beatriz at Dinner, Me & Earl & the Dying Girl, This Is Where I Leave You, The To-Do List, Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, American Ultra, and Land of Steady Habits.

In April 2014, Britton was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme. In this role, she will raise awareness of UNDP's work in poverty eradication and women's empowerment, advocating to the American and global public.

Britton is represented by WME, Untitled, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush & Kaller.
