Jordan Peele’s life will become busier as he signs an overall production deal with Amazon Studios, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The news comes after the studio picked up Peele’s 10-episode Nazi drama The Hunt last month. He is also working with Amazon for the documentary series Lorena about Lorena Bobbitt.

His company Monkeypaw will produce both projects.

“Jordan, [Monkeypaw’s] Win Rosenfeld and the Monkeypaw team represent the ideal creative collaboration as we continue to ramp up original, culturally relevant and riveting television,” said Amazon’s new studio head Jennifer Salke. “Our Lorena Bobbitt documentary and series order for The Hunt represent just the start of what will be a prolific and exciting relationship with Monkeypaw.”

Under his new contract, Peele’s will create new projects for Amazon.

The company is competing directly with streaming giant Netflix, which recently announced a blockbuster production deal with the Obamas.

“I couldn’t be more excited about this new relationship with Amazon. They’ve been a fantastic partner to Monkeypaw over the last year because they’re committed to the same kind of fun and culturally relevant television we are,” Peele said.
